    Paris going up and down

    August 11 in France ⋅ ⛅ 22 °C

    The first day is almost over and I have to say it's not that bad. Although I think this city is a mix of beauty and ugly, of pretty and pretty dirty 😅

    So to get the "bad" things out of the way:
    The toilet situation is the worst. I rather have a nice hole in the ground than a toilet without a seat, looking like it has never been cleaned and smelling like it too. One pizzeria toilet even had the door missing. I kid you not!!!

    Also the waiters and service personal, for example at the stations, is mainly really cold and ignorant. Not everybody of course but the majority (at least today.. we still have 4 more days to find out we were wrong 🤞🏼)

    The streets are not really clean although I think it's okay due to the fact that this city is old and has an antique flair, so the trash and dirt kinda fits.

    On the other hand Paris really has charme! The Saine, the bridges everywhere, the little cafe's, the street musicians and all those old french style buildings just give you a feeling of happiness and tranquility ☺️

    All in all the city made some really heavy impressions and I'm really excited for Wednesday and Thursday, because the next to days we'll spend at Disneyland 😍

    FYI: I heard the tip in restaurants is already included. But I will find out for sure asap!

    La Fontaine Stravinsky, Paris

    September 3, 2018 in France ⋅ ⛅ 22 °C

    Just outside the Pompidou Centre is the whimsical public fountain called the Stravinsky Fountain (La Fontaine Stravinsky in French). It is ornamented with sixteen sculpture pieces, moving and spraying water, representing the works of composer Igor Stravinsky. It was created in 1983 by sculptors Jean Tinguely and Niki de Saint Phalle, and is quite a surprise to see amongst the traditional French buildings and churches.

    I also loved the huge mural painted on the side of a nearby wall in contrast with the old traditional church. Certainly something different to see.

    Paris in Three Days

    June 16, 2016 in France ⋅ ⛅ 63 °F

    We had a great time in Paris despite some rainy weather. We had pre booked a full day pivate tour of Montmartre (including Sacre Coeur), Marais, Latin Quarter, and St Germain which we had not visited during our last trip, went back to the Lourve with a private guide to get a more in depth visit, and did a tour of the Opera Garnier, the opera house of Phantom fame. The tours and guides were excellent and having a private guide for most of them maximized our tme. We would highly recommend Tour by Locals for private tours which we used in all of the countries we visited. On our last night we met our friends for a special pre barge dinner at Le Procope which is the oldest cafe in Paris.Read more

    Paris - Montparnasse

    July 4, 2017 in France ⋅ ☀️ 23 °C

    The next leg of our journey is onto Paris. Security out of Israel quite tight with about 5 checkpoints, luggage needing to be unlocked and a small inquisition to ensure you are who you say are. We farewell Israel after nearly a two hour delay and arrive in Paris in the dark. Paris is beautiful by day or night and Alanah is so excited to catch a glimpse of old Eiffel's tower lit up like a Christmas tree. Toni outdid herself with the apartment and location she chose to stay at in Paris. We are located in Montparnasse, an inner suburb of Paris about 3km from the centre of town. Typical french architecture, cafes and brasseries, a strip with a local street market and local supermarket right across the road. We're on the 2nd floor and our windows open onto the street, bringing in the those classic French scenery and sounds.Read more

    Paris, France

    August 7, 2016 in France ⋅ ⛅ 26 °C

    Ross and I enjoyed exploring Pari! We had amazing food (lots of it) and saw amazing sights!! We went to dinner at a restaurant that is famous for its sauce. There isn't a menu - you get a salad, and then fries and a steak. Your only choice is how your steak is cooked. Once you finish your plate, they bring you a second plate of steak and fries! We were in heaven.Read more

    Friday

    September 7, 2017 in France ⋅ ☁️ 19 °C

    Today our feet hurt so we did not go far. We walked to the POMPIDOU CENTRE it looked cool and the building was inside out. It is a museum of modern art. After that we went to all the small interesting glass shop ally ways. They all had a cute little things. We walked past all the bridges and all the church buildings around like the PANTHEON. My favourite bridge was the padlock bridge like they one they used to have in Melbourne. People buy padlocks and write the names of the people they love on them, they lock it with the key and throw the key in the river. We went after that to a Museum the cost to much to go in. The hole time we were in France I saw around 16 army people holding big guns.Read more

    Finalmente llegamos a Paris!

    February 18, 2016 in France ⋅ ⛅ 3 °C

    Llegamos a la nochecita, y nos fuimos en metro al hotel. Queda por Les Halles y hay un KFC a dos cuadras. 

    Como no podíamos aguantarnos, cuando salimos a cenar fuimos hasta una esquina para tratar de ver la torre Eiffel desde lejos y sacarle la primera foto.

    Primera noche en Paris

    December 28, 2016 in France ⋅ ☀️ 4 °C

    Llegue al aeropuerto de Orly à Paris. Émilie et Maxime me han recibido, y me llevaron a pasear por les Champs Elysées, donde estaba el marché de Nöel. Todo muy lindo adornado con las luces de Navidad, y había mucha mucha comida que jamás he probado. He visto también la roule de París y el Arc du Triomphe.Read more
