A bad day in Paris-the city of love-is still better than a good day anywhere else.
Some month ago I was allowed to experience that somehow this saying is true. In June I had big luck to visit Paris with my boyfriend. Although it rained most of the time we spend several wonderful days in Paris-the city of love. Half of the trip was nice and sunny and half of it rainy, which was wonderful too! Paris is amazing when it rains! I’m not sure, but I think there is no other place that doesn’t look ugly when it’s gray and rainy. But Paris gets its unforgettable character especially when it rains!
We went for a picnic to Eiffel tower. On the way, we picked some delicacies: cheese, fresh baguette, cool white wine and grapes. Further we had a very memorable moment at Notre Dame and in the district Le Marais as I surly told you in my article “How To Start A Weekend In Paris” and in my “Little Paris Travel Guide”.
On bad weather, it was also cool to go to a brasserie and enjoy a cold beer or a glass of white wine under the heat lamps and watch people going by holding different things to cover them from rain.
All the pics of my previous Paris-articles were taken from my boyfriend. But I just found these pics on my own camera. I thought it would be nice to share how I saw Paris-the city of love and dreams-though MY eyes and why I fell in love with this city.
I had been in Paris for less than some hours and the lights, the flair, the smell and the people filled my heart with the desire to explore this historical place. Our visit was definitely too short. It would take twenty life times to see all of Paris. We would love to stay longer and discover more of these beautiful places.
We filled our weekend-trip with details and Parisian things. French balconies, Pozzetto Gelato, Falafel-Snack, Macarons and hot chocolate, croissants, baguettes, crepes. And words like “rue de…” or “quatre croissants s’il vous plait…”.
But I also saw some ugly things, like parents with small children, even babies, sleeping on the street when it’s pouring rain! It’s hard to ignore such a contrast and I’ll never be able to treat those things as normal! When you see something like this, you will know that there is really nothing to complain. We should be thankful for what we have. And we should help those who have less or even nothing.
In this historical city you will never run out of opportunities to discover new things. Therefore, it is certainly worth it for another visit. Although rich and poor are living so close together, I love this city as it is.
Dear Paris – City of Love, city of dreams, city of splendor.
Just wait for me. We´re are going to meet us again. I promise.
