Paris highlights

(1) Across from the Louvre
 
As promised here is the first look of my Europe trip. I gathered some shots from some
of my favorite Parisian moments and some of the most famous landmarks. I have to say,
that I was completely in awe of the Arc De Triomphe.
 

(2) Arc De Triomphe
 
It could be because we walked for over an hour to get to it (the trickster appears nearby until you start walking and realize it’s actually pretty darn far) or the fact that by the time we got to it the sun was setting so the transition of the sky going from all shades of pink and orange was breathtaking (although you can’t see it all that well in the picture).




(3) Pont des Arts - aka the lovers bridge (our locket has been added for good measure)

 
(4) One is never too old to admire and giggle about a carousel
 
 
(5) Starring in admiration
 
 
(6) The lovely Luxembourg Parc
 

(7) Notre Dame
 
I was equally taken aback with the stunning Notre Dame,
and I was only too glad to pass by it all day long ,every day as
 it was in close proximity to our hotel.


 
(8 ) Our balcony view and getting ready for the Moulin Rouge (which
was equally amazing and highly recommend seeing it if in Paris)


(9) Louvre - the perfect antidote for a rainy day (expect to wait in line a while)
 




It was really hard trying to compress my Parisian adventures in just a few photos. There is so much to see and do that I wouldn’t do its justice but I think I narrowed it down to not too many, but enough to give you a sense of how spectacular Paris really is (day and night). Not even constant showers and cold temperatures could dampen my mood. Although I spend most of the day on my feet, sightseeing and mesmerizing all the history and architecture, I did make time for some amazing tea and dessert afternoons spent in Laduree ( my favorite spot of all time) and chocolate croissants eating (which I’m now regretting… not really, it was that good!).

I am certainly no export, but have learned and seen so much and can’t wait to hopefully visit again in the future. You truly can never have enough of Paris and can never see it all and I now understand why people keep coming back throughout their life. It really is a magical place.

 Hope you have a great weekend and thanks so much for all your lovely comments!
PS: Next week I will be sharing with you the London part of the trip.
 
Love,
O

  8. Olga you look beautiful as always, love all your outfits. That photo from the balcony is just amazing, beautiful shot and the skirt is so pretty! I went to Paris also just few years ago. Who knows maybe one of these days I should share my photos too since I am sharing a lot more of my travel adventures past and future ones. :)
    Paris is a beautiful city, I loved it too!:) But my favorite city in Europe is Lisbon, good weather, good food, good wine, beautiful beaches, awesome shopping, amazing night life... and it's way cheaper to visit. :)
