Paris, Day 1: Paris on Foot

Golden sunlight filled the room when I woke on my first morning in Paris but as soon as I opened my eyes, I began to sneeze. It had been an unseasonably warm and everything was in bloom, someone told me later. I didn’t let that stop me.

I had planned on being in Paris for only two days then head to Barcelona for a day before returning to London. But when I mentioned my plan to Karen, she said I was crazy, that I needed more time just to see Paris.

My goal for the day was the Champs Elysees, the Eiffel Tower and the Arc de Triomphe. So I left the hotel shortly after breakfast, map ready.

Come with me as I walk from the metro towards the Avenue de General-Eisenhower.

I spent most of the morning strolling the expansive boulevards around the Champs Elysees, admiring the beautiful buildings that line the street.

Then I made my way to the Arc de Triomphe.

  1. You took some beautiful photos… I love Paris; especially at night. I can’t believe that the last time I was there, my camera was acting up. Urgh! 🙂

  2. Thank you, Elizabeth! It is stunningly beautiful and so romantic at nights.
    That always seem to happen when you’re about to get your best shot. It’s happened to me, Luckily, my friends’ cameras didn’t fail them so I have some photos.
    Thanks for the visit,
