J’aime Paris – A Picture Filled Look at My Recent Trip

It’s time we got down to it. I fly away to Vienna in 12 days and yet I’ve still not written about my trip to Paris in May. I’m a big ol’ procrastinator and I’ll add apologising about it to my to do list. So here we are. Paris, was the trip of a lifetime, with extra special meaning to me because, one, I’m a liitttllle bit obsessed with vintage Paris, and two, because I went on this trip with my best friend, my Mum. The trip wasn’t plain sailing we’d originally landed somewhere else and at 3pm in the afternoon decided to get a last minute train to Paris instead, because I wanted the trip to be a great one, my Mum hadn’t been abroad since the 80’s after all. You all know what Paris has to offer though, the sights to be seen, and I am a photographer, so instead of listing off the things to do there, I’m going to show you the parts of Paris that I loved because of their photographic and general charm. so here goes…

Reasons I loved Paris:

Because there were hidden gems at every turn.

An Old Convent. Taken through iron gates.

Because I saw things I’d never seen before,

Like double decker trains…

…and a Bride and Groom in the middle of the road…

…and surrounded by pigeons.

Because every bit of architecture was a work of art.

Because there were no flowers anywhere so I got excited when I finally saw some.

Because on one boat trip you could see a dinosaur, a pirate ship, and the statue of liberty.

Because in Paris every part of shopping is on another level.

Because the Moulin Rouge and the Basilica du Sacre-Coeur de Montmartre are in walking distance of each other.

and because I’ve dreamed of going there since I was a little girl, and it was everything and more than I could ever have imagined.

Hope you’ve enjoyed looking through the things I loved about Paris and the photographs I took. See you next week!
