Flying and traveling for long hours is sometimes not easy. Obviously, there is a jet lag problem, but for us the easiest way to overcome was by walking and wandering around the place.
In the beginning, I never realized that Paris is just a perfect place for walking until I experienced it. We walked most of the time from the first day till the last day. We walked a lot, as in a lot, but it was really nice to walk in Paris.
While we were walking, we indulged ourselves in visual pleasures by looking at the lovely architecture. We enjoyed the feeling of being in Paris, a city which is very well connected to its history and at the same time very modern. I was indeed overwhelmed by its grand spirit.
Paris as we all know is a city that by nature candidly and genuinely oozes romance. During my first visit in Paris, our first Paris trip together, we experienced a perfect romantic walk on a chilly night while holding our hands and contemplating the beauty of the city. How lucky we were. I tell you, it was such an incredibly awesome experience that an 18th-century poet would approve of.
On our first morning, we walked from our hotel to the subway. Then we took a subway to the Louvre station. There we crossed and walked towards the Museum de Louvre. We wandered outside the Louvre and took plenty of pictures. We ambled through the Pont des Arts, out into the garden of the Louvre and kept trotting slowly to the Jardin des Tuilerie and L’obelisque de Luxor monument while savoring the fresh air, the place and the people. We trekked further towards the building of the Assembly National, then crossed the road and headed off to a restaurant to get some beer, food and some rest. Afterwards, we took a subway and went back to our hotel cause I needed to change my high heel boots. Ops! Don’t you think that was a good introduction of our first morning in Paris?
We stayed a week in Paris, and we visited many different places and saw plenty of wonderful stuff in Paris not to forget to mention a few: The Eiffel Tower, The Museum of the Louvre (we spent 1 day inside the Louvre), the garden of the Louvre, The Notre Dame Cathedral, The Bassilica of the Sacré Coeur, The Champs Elysees, The Arc de Triomphe, Jardins des Tuileries , L’Obelisque de Luxor monument, The Assembly National, many historical chapelles, The Place de la Concorde, The Latin Quarter, the Island of the City, the Seine River, and a lot more…Plus of course, we went to see the Castle of Versailles, which is located outside of Paris.
Let me tell you, there is no ending to the list of things that one should see in Paris.
