Paris ~ First Impressions

Paris, First Impressions

It's clear to see why the world loves Paris. Falling in love with this beautiful city happens the minute you set eyes on it. There is pure magic in the air.


When we arrived in France our first sightseeing visit was to Le Tour Eiffel. It seemed to be the perfect starting point for our adventure. The views from the top were spectacular...breathtaking.Les Invalides, the gold dome church in the photo above is where Napoleon is burried.


You could easily see how the entire city was layed out with it's arrondisments, historic buildings and monuments and the peaceful Seine River running through. 


After our visit we hopped on a boat to ride along the Seine. The bridges were amazing. Each one different than the next and the amount of detail that went into them was astonishing. Carved stone monograms and wreaths, gold gilding, copper plating...all gorgeous.


I have so much to share with you. We explored the city from early morning until the sun set every single day we were there. We went to museums and monuments, took strolls in parks, traveled by metro daily, hit the flea markets, flower shops, food markets and antique stores, shopped at Laudree and many others, leisured at sidewalk cafes, visited historic cathedrals, went to an ancient cemetary, took the train to Chateau Versailles and so much more.

We also shot video of our trip and I'm having a couple short films made from them. And I bought presents to giveaway here on the blog! So my friends, I suppose a disclaimer might be in prepared for a lot of Paris.
