For those of you who know me, know that Paris is my absolute favourite city in the world, Venice came very close to taking that title once, but Paris still has my heart.
I had to visit the locked bridge to see how my lock was doing... a little rustier than I remember but it's hanging in there. I have since found out that there are many bridges in Paris with locks covering them and the original is actually on a bridge called Pont de l'Archevêché by Notre Dame which i will be sure to visit next time.
The musée d'Orsay is one of my favourite museums in Paris. It definitely falls into the category of places that I visit almost every time I come and would have this time if the queue hadn't been so eyewateringly long!
There is something about the architecture that I just fall in love with every time I go, the buildings are simply stunning. A stroll through the Tuileries gardens is always on the agenda.
I love all the little quaint cafe's on every corner. I order up a croque madame wherever I go.
On our last day Papa Chester and I wanted to go ice skating by l'hotel de ville, however when we got there the queue was too long to contemplate so we enjoyed watching the skaters whiz by instead.
We wandered across the road to visit the beautiful Notre Dame cathedral before relunctantly heading home to pack.
I am already itching to go back!
Again if you know me you know I love a quote, so I thought I would leave this post with someone else's words that sum up my thoughts exactly.
“He who contemplates the depths of Paris is seized with vertigo.
Nothing is more fantastic. Nothing is more tragic.
Nothing is more sublime.” - Victor Hugo
