Paris in Pictures


What a great way to start the trip!


Sacre-Coeur at Sunset


Montmartre streets


Louvre-ing Paris


I have no Monet to buy Degas to make the Van Gogh.


Notre Dame de Paris


Sometimes you have to be a little tourist-y


It’s not a mountain, but it’ll do


The view from the top of the Arc de Triomphe


The Eiffel Tower at night as seen from Plaza Trocadero


Moulin Rouge, Paris, France

Disclaimer: I loved Paris when I visited the first time. I continue to love it now. Even in the cold. Even in the rain. (Even in a box. Even with a fox.) It’s such a contrast to Madrid: where Madrid is loud, Paris is quiet; when Madrid is in no rush, Parisians move just quickly enough to make you think they’re getting things done; where Madrid is colored warmly in shades of red and brown, Paris is cool greys and yellows. There’s something enchanting about the elegance of the city that makes it cozy and homey, yet electric and dignified. It’s complex. It’s alive. It’s beautiful.
