With love.. From Paris.

I know summer is the time most people choose to travel but on a recent surprise trip to beautiful Paris my heart warmed to the magic of a vacation taken in spring bloom. Paris is a famously picturesque city with a lot of culture, history, architecture and food, oh glorious food, to take in. Travelling around Paris is quite simple by metro, which is very much like the London underground. However, I recommend a walk around the city’s streets, which do not have the hustle and bustle of Central London. This is the best way to tune in to the city’s heartbeat and let your mind wander through the arrondissements. It’s definitely the perfect destination for those who LOVE shopping and site seeing. Well suited for a short city break, you can probably see most of the tourist sights of Paris in two days. All this beauty does come at a cost though. Paris is quite expensive especially if you like the finer things in life. The locals are very friendly and strangers always seem to talk to you, even though I have to admit I know very little French. 

Overall the trip was an amazing and unforgettable experience. The highlights for me were the ascent up the Eiffel Tower, Cath├ędrale Notre Dame de Paris, dining at some of the finest restaurants in Paris and seeing the amazing paintings at the Musee du Louvre.  It all left me with a smile that even dear old Mona Lisa would have been jealous of. 

Below are a few of many captured moments at my trip.
