Paris II

The first part is here.





I loved the Notre Dame, even though the outside didn't look as big as I expected it to. Inside it was beautiful.







Shakespeare and Co was closed when we were there. I was so disappointed.


It was a bit of a hazy day when we went to Sacre Couer, so the views weren't quite clear. It was still lovely, though.

Paris


The old Opera House.


Of course, a sparkling Eiffel Tower. I remember it being super chilly and windy, I don't think I'd ever been that cold.


Next to the Pompidou centre. There was lots of shopping around this area.

Up next, Switzerland!

  4. Paris will always have my heart. Loving your updates. It's funny how many similar photos I took on my trip (like the stained glass in the Notre Dame and looking up from underneath the Eiffel Tower in the post below. *tourist eyes* haha).

    Looking forward to your Switzerland post :)

  5. Ohhh, Paris. Lovely, lovely Paris! The clear blue sky behind the Sacre Coeur is so nice. Well, actually everything is nice. Your gif of the Eiffel Tower and the operahouse and ohh... I just really like it all.

    I was wondering, what did you think of the Ladurée macarons? You said you were dying to try them...

    1. The Laduree macarons were sooo nice, the texture of the shells was perfect. The ones you get here can kind of be a hit or miss.

  7. Although I've been to France several times (well, Austria is close), I have never been to Paris. I only "know" the cathedral from Disney's the Hunchback of Notre Dame :D
    Have you been to any markets?

  11. That gif of the Eiffel Tower is bee-yoo-tiful. And is that the Pont des Arts bridge? I took an obnoxious amount of pictures of that one. Like 30+ pictures of individual locks.

    1. I don't think it's the Pont des Arts, it's a bridge closer to the Notre Dame (I think!).
