Going to Paris



As I said last time, there’s one more place we’ll be going to on our little Europe trip - Paris. I’m really looking forward to it. Last time I’ve been was 6 years ago. It really doesn’t feel that long ago, crazy how time flies! Before that I’ve been once as a child, but can’t remember anything - so basically this will be my second ‘real’ visit to Paris.
I’m excited to see how it feels this time around, as I believe the feeling you get from a city depends a lot on who you’re with, what you’re doing and seeing, etc.

Anyway, I’m not planning on figuring out too much before we go, I just want to wander and explore, and come across nice places along the way. Just go with the flow. I’m sure we’ll be having lots and lots of great food, no matter where we end up. I’m already dreaming of eating all those croissants, crepes, eclairs, cheese, baguettes, pains au chocolat, etc. Hopefully lots of walking will burn some of those calories ;)

I really want to take a film camera as well as my digital one. Last time I only had a film camera with me, and love how those photos turned out (see above). Just not sure if my shoulders and back like the idea of carrying around two cameras.

Well, if you have any tips and thoughts anyway, please do share! :)

  2. I've only been to Paris as a little baby so I don't have any recommendations. I can't wait to see what you'll find there:) This winter I read "This is Life" by Dan Rhodes, which is set in that city and it's wonderfully bizarre. If you are not too busy it's an easy read and will make you love the city even more.
    ps. it's about art students. and japanese tourists. and weird loves.

    1. Thanks for the tip, Giulia. Might not be able to read it before we go, but will keep it in mind :)
