“Oh, I love Paris!,” is a phrase that I’ve heard so many times, that I assumed it was just something people say. It’s so cliche, and the city could never live up to the hype. What could possibly be so special? A tower, that I’ve seen a thousand times in pictures, and a museum filled with paintings, can’t make a city that much more fantastic than the rest.
Except, I was wrong.
Although, I wasn’t quite able to put my finger on what it is that makes it so special, I couldn’t stop smiling the entire time I was in Paris. I did a lot, in a short five days. I did a separate post on Disneyland Paris, so this is everything else. Although, I rode the metro twice, most of my time was on foot. I was staying in Montmarte but hiked down to the Seine and visited the places that you’re supposed to visit. Saint Chapelle and Sacré-Cœur blew my mind. I was able to attend Mass at Notre-Dame with less than a hundred people. I got to spend an afternoon with Rozanne, shooting in Parc Monceau, a place that I had never even heard about. The only way that I was let down, was my day at Versailles. It was rainy and cold and just plain gross out side. The line was hella long and all outside, so I decided to skip the chateau and spent my time in the gardens. Looks like I’ll have to go back in the winter.
So this is Paris…
