When I was in Paris, I didn’t expect to do as much walking as we did. I totally thought we would be able to Uber every where but when you started walking around, you realized how close everything was and you had this mindset of, “oh, it’s only a 15 minute walk, we can totally do that!” but the more you did that, the more it added up, haha
The first day we were there, after our red eye flight, mind you, we walked over 9 miles! By the end of the day, my hips were in so much pain and my calves were so sore. We saw so much and I absolutely adored the streets of Paris. It’s very quaint and cute.
However, I will say, in the effort of being utterly honest on my blog, that Paris isn’t for me! I didn’t fall in love with it like everyone else apparently does. It’s underwhelming and totally romanticized from movies and a complete letdown. There is nothing in Paris that makes me want to go back (except maybe for the croissants and pastries, haha). I know, don’t yell at me! Not every city is going to be for everyone. I’m in love with England/London and always will be, but you may not be but it’s obviously very subjective and opinion-based. Anyway, from what we did see of Paris, it’s definitely pretty and the architecture is stunning, but there is just something missing for me in Paris. It never evoked that overwhelming ‘omg’ feeling that I got when I was in London.
So I guess after all that, this is my post on what we saw when we were walking around Paris. There’s not much to say about these except you’ll probably recognize a bunch of these famous landmarks so no explanation is needed. There are some photos of buildings in the bunch that I found so European and old that I had to take a snap. Hope you enjoy these snapshots! :)
