Paris Day One

After we left Belgium, we took a train to Paris. Man, do I love Paris. There is SO much to see but you could also be content to do nothing but walk around or sit at a cafe all day. My friend had never been there so we saw a lot of sites. On the first day, we managed to see Ste. Chapelle, Notre Dame including going up to the top, walked by the Louvre, walked through the Tullieries and ended at Luxembourg Gardens.

Luxembourg garden is probably my favorite place in Paris which is saying a lot. It is so beautiful and serene there. Everyone just relaxes in chairs around the large pond. We got there right as the sun was setting and it just added even more to the beautiful setting. I've been here in early spring, winter and now late spring. It was just as amazing each time I've been and I will go again if I'm ever in Paris again.

Stayed tuned for Day Two! See WAY more pictures on my Flikr page here.


  1. You should go to Versailles if you have time and spend a whole day there <3 that is my "place to be" :) Did you manage to have a look around the Seine at the art prints?! They are fab!

  2. Stain glass windows = <3 They are my favorite! I can't believe how many gorgeous flowers you saw as well while in Europe, they're all so vibrant!

  3. I have been there! I've been to Paris twice before and went to Versaille both times. I loved it! We wandered by the part of the Seine by Notre Dame and looked at the little stalls along it. So great! That's where the French Harry Potter book was :)

  4. If you want a print of one of the stained glass photos, you totally can! Baby gift :)

  5. Oh! I am glad you went there! I adored the Petit Trianon and Marie Antoinette's gardens <3 but when it comes to Harry Potter I must admit that I much rather like it it pure English language :) btw you should one day visit Poland (Krakow) too ;) it is close to Prague (just a few hours away) and the place is ADORABLE! :)

    P.S. That is why I moved ;)

  6. Great photos. Thanks for sharing,.

  7. How amazing are your photos?! You are talented for sure! And how much do you love Paris? I have only been there once but dream of the day I go back again.....

  8. Thanks! I appreciate it. I L.O.V.E. Paris. I never understood why people have issues with the locals either. It is just a great city!

  9. It sounds like you're having the trip of a lifetime! I admit I'm jealous; who wouldn't be? These pictures are absolutely stunning. I love old buildings! America doesn't really have any. I need to go to Europe! Following you on GFC and Bloglovin'!

    May the Force be with you.
