Parisss my love

23 Feb

Our final stop before heading back to Glasgow. It was love at first feel.:) I love the hustle and bustle of the place. And yet in the midst of all this, u cannotĀ  ignore the romance and serenity it radiates.

I guess i have a penchant for happening cities:) hehe

Day 1

First stop was the famed Notre Dame.

another very gothic church. The music that echoed throughout the building was so haunting it gave me goosebumps:P

To many, Eiffel Tower was just a piece of steel crap. To us it was underrated. It was just as grand as how it was described. It actually looked intimidating haha. esp when ure right next to it. It was too windy that day so we just took the lift all the way to the peak:) But it drizzled, sadly to say, so our piccies were gray and overcast.

Day 2

Musee du Louvre

If you are truly a huge fan or art or history, one day wouldnt suffice. U will need the 3 day pass at least. For us, 3-4 hours cukupla ahaha.

It houses collections from all dynasties and eras from all over the world. My favourite was particularly the ones from Egypt and Napoleon’s apartment.
