    Notre Dame

    September 22, 2017 in France ⋅ ⛅ 16 °C

    We arrived at the hotel way to early for check in. So we hopped on the hop on hop off bus but with in minutes we were so board we had to get of to stay awake.

    The Notre Dame was the closest attraction and we thought if Quasimodo lived there it had to be less boring 😜.

    It was one of the most amazing churches i have ever been in. The art in the church is unbelievable, a specially the sculptures depicting the appearance of Jesus to several people after he rose from the dead and the depiction of His birth story.

    Point Zero

    This small octagonal brass plate set in the ground is considered the official center of Paris and, as mentioned, it marks the exact spot from which all distances throughout France are measured (in relation to Paris).Read more

    Paris - Notre Dame etc

    October 4, 2015 in France ⋅ ⛅ 14 °C

    Went on a walking tour around Notre Dame, which really made the place come to life more than the (many) other churches I've seen at this point. I especially liked the little demons depicted (#2) showing the punishments of hell / rewards of heaven (this was helpful for the illiterate townsfolk who couldn't read the bible).

    We also saw the famous lock bridge nearby. I can see why they're cutting those locks off - they're 4 deep in many places! I quite liked the graffiti on one end of the bridge too :D (you're gonna need a lot more keys, Link!)

    On another nearby bridge we came across some fancily-dressed, mostly older people doing rollerblading tricks. I took some videos here:

    We then went to find the "best ice cream in Paris/the world" (Berthillon) which turned out to be just ok IMO.

    We went on to see the Pantheon building, which was just another big impressive building (no tour commentary to give context, and it was closing by the time we got there anyway). Fine, we decided to go somewhere a bit different and see the Catacombs of Paris (open late so we had plenty of time). Upon arrival: "sorry last entrance is an hour before closing time, and it's now 57 minutes before closing time". Ahh, Paris.

    Notre Dame and nutella

    November 2, 2015 in France ⋅ 🌫 9 °C

    There is something to be said for the magic of a crepe made right in front of you, smothered in nutella....Just for you to enjoy while you wander the streets of Paris.

    We've made our way to Notre Dame and will take the tour. I find architecture like this so incredible, the fact that they kept building and building for hundreds of years to get the church in its current state and were inspired to persrervere. We just don't build structures like this anymore.Read more

    Atterrati a Parigi alle 8.30 usciamo velocemente dall’aeroporto Charles de Gaulle e alle 9.30 scattiamo già le prime foto a Notre Dame.
    Due passi lungo la Senna, salutiamo il Louvre e l’Opera’ dove la tappa è d’obbligo: macarons Pierre Herme.
    Pranzo rapido in una creperie sulla Senna e rientro in aeroporto dove ci attende il volo di 11 ore con cui alle 20.00 di una giornata infinita atterriamo a L.A..
