A day in Paris

France / Paris | November 29, 2015

On a gloriously sunny Thursday morning my colleague and I set out to explore the delights of Paris. After arriving late the night before we were eager to enjoy a typical French breakfast before setting out on our fascinating journey of discovery. To begin we boarded a bus tour which whisked us away around the northern side of the city centre before crisscrossing the Seine as we wound our way through the marvel that is Paris. On our travels we were able to view the gold statues of the Palais Garnier – inspired setting for the Phantom of the Opera, the mix of new and old that is the Louvre pyramid and surrounding palace, the beautifully restored Notre-Dame Cathedral and the “oldest rock in Paris” being the ancient Egyptian obelisk. Following this we went for a cruise down the beautiful tree lined Champs Elysees before our intrepid driver gingerly eased his way around the insurance “black spot” that is the roundabout of the Arc de Triomphe, providing us a grand view of this monument beautifully lit by the morning sun. As we finished up our trip at the base of the Eiffel tower we gathered our tickets, skipping the line to venture all of the way up this iron wonder to the top platform overlooking the city, revelling in the view as we snapped off a few pictures for posterity. After a quieter afternoon we took the surprisingly efficient Metro on our way to visiting the Sacre Coeur Basilica by night, delighting in the grand views over Paris. We ventured inside only to be filled with awe at both the ancient architecture and the nuns beautifully harmonized song during that night’s service, the perfect way to end our day’s sights before returning home the next day.

Taking a cruise through Paris

France / Paris | April 14, 2015

My recent trip to Paris was most definitely a journey of two halves. There were endless streets to navigate, armed with a crumpled map and two weary colleagues. There were hotels dotted all over the huge city that we needed to visit and make notes on. We had appointments to keep to and very tired feet! I was conscious that I was letting the best of Paris, a city I have loved since I was a child, pass me by in a rushed blur.
