Snapshots of Paris.

By Posted in - Big Trip & Europe & Featured Post & Photography Posts & Photos on September 6th, 2010

Thank God I was not born in Paris.

If I had been born in Paris the rest of the world would be nothing but a disappointment to me.

I have fallen completely head of heels in love with this city. In fact, I want to move here and I am going to move here, if even for only a couple of months. The light radiates off the buildings, the people have been lovely, the sights are unbelievable. I don’t even know the adjectives I would use that would accurately describe how I feel about Paris.

To be honest, I wanted to see it but I really didn’t think I would love it. Now Italy has some serious work to do in order to compete with this town. I have never in any of my travels met a place so fantastic.

Paris is absolutely perfect in every single way.

Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious – That’s the only word that really comes to mind.

One thing is for sure – my life would not have been the same had I not visited Paris. My only regret is that I didn’t come here earlier.

Customers drink beer and ale in a Paris pub. Two cafes on a busy street in Paris, France. A couple walking through a Paris street. The Paris landscape from a train window.

Above is a random sampling of pictures from Paris. We have had a really hard time finding internet but now I think we’ve got a good place. Unfortunately I forgot my card reader and was unable to pick up the other photos I have. I had just a few on this card but I have very many to post! Paris has been amazing. We leave on Friday for Italy and now that we have a place for WiFi we’ll be able to put up some more posts about how to stay on a budget in Paris (and still have an awesome time) and about our camping experiences in Europe. Plus I am going through all of my Iceland pictures and I can’t wait to put those up as well. More to come tomorrow – Bonjour!

    Awesome pics as always. It sounds as if Paris hasn’t lived up to the negative stereotype of rude people.

    My mother spent three years in Paris and said it changed her life too. Paris is definitely on my itinerary. Since my namesake is French “LaBorde”, they might even pronounce it right.

    I’ve read a few posts recently from people who were somewhat disappointed with Paris, so I am happy that you love it as much as we do!! When we still lived in London, it was so easy to hop on a train and spend the weekend in Paris – we miss it! I bet you’ll enjoy Italy just as much – have a great time there.

      Wow, I can’t imagine how anyone could be disappointed here. I mean if you don’t like it here what’s left? hahaha… Glad you liked it too. I was in London for only a day but loved it there as well. 🙂 @Globetrottergirls,

    Bonjour means hello…. Au Revoir means goodbye… geez, are you not studying at all?! 🙂

    Oh France, I cried yesterday because I am not somewhere awesome. I hate home ownership. I think it is ruining my life. that and the fact that my husband always gets in the way of my living. I hate marriage too. 🙁 can you see that I am in a negative place. A place that is not Paris.

    I knew you would fall for it. Seems that everyone does, perhaps they let out fumes or extra oxygen to keep people happy and in love. Ah a city filled with romance… sounds amazing.

    keep the photos coming! love you! – b.

      Well you’ll have a house for a long time – so that’s a plus. It’s not ruining your life. I’ve always wanted one. 🙂 @Bridgette,

    Great pics, really captures the ‘chic’ nature of Paris

    Bridgette = Bonjour means good day not hello (bon = good, jour = day)

    Salut (pronounced Sa loo) means hello 🙂

    Beth – WOW, those shots are amazing as usual. Actually, the photo of the guy and girl looks like an editorial photo in a fashion magazine.

      Thank Anthony! I have so many amazing ones that I haven’t even been able to edit yet. I can’t wait to get them up. Have you been to Paris? I bet you would love it! @Anthony,

      I’m trying. I have so many great ones. The camping/lack of electricity thing is making it tough to keep up. 🙂 How the heck are you??? @Brooke vs. the World,

    Buff, I am so glad you love Paris — I love it too! I get annoyed with the rudeness stereotype. People are the same everywhere I think — some are rude, some are nice. Parisians aren’t any different. The city itself is so gorgeous too — if you go in summer when they cover one of the boulevards with sand and make “Paris Plage” (Paris beach, complete with deck chairs and umbrellas, next to the Seine) you will love it even more… amazing!

    Wow, those are some amazing photos! I’m glad to hear you’re having a blast.. (nice to meet you btw!)..

    I know a few people who’ve been left with a sour taste in their mouths from Paris.. but I’m still DYING to go!

    Can’t wait to read about Italy.. another one of my must-sees!

    “Paris is absolutely perfect in every single way.” I could not agree more.

    Interesting to have a foreign point of view on Paris when you’re living there… and to see that it could be magical to others. Specially when you’re hearing all the pessimists French not able to see the beauty in the city they’re living in. But come on, Italy is magnificent as well !
