From Paris, with Love

2F8A5411Paris is always a good idea. It sounds cliché, but it’s true! Since returning from Europe, I’ve slowly been making my way through all the dreamy images we took, and the ones we captured in Paris are some of my favourite. I had visited Paris before, but it had been years and I was so happy to be back, especially with Jonathon. Since it’s Valentine’s week, I thought it was the perfect time to share our first set of photos from the City of Love.Paris Eiffel Tower 22F8A5396Paris Eiffel Tower 12F8A5414Paris Eiffel Tower 42F8A5356We took these photos early one morning as the fog floated over Paris. The light was luminous, and I had fun posing at this iconic location. After capturing the Eiffel Tower in the morning haze, we made our way to Musée d’Orsay. If you only visit one gallery in Paris, go to Musée d’Orsay. The gallery is home to so many incredible pieces, including an entire wing of Impressionists, Van Gogh and Art Nouveau. It also featured this incredible roman numeral clock, which you simply have to take a photo in front of. Half way through our tour of the gallery, we stopped by one of the restaurants for a cafe au lait and a delicious piece of carrot cake. When in Paris, always stop for coffee and cake!Paris Eiffel Tower 52F8A59122F8A54522F8A5778Paris Eiffel Tower 32F8A5469Eiffel Tower Paris 9There is a romance about this city, but it’s easy to feel overwhelmed, especially if you don’t speak the language. There is so much to see and do, but the best way to experience Paris is slowly. This is advice I received from Anthony Bourdain’s Paris Layover episode. Advice that was quickly confirmed by my dear friend Cee who’s lived in Paris. Eat the croissants, drink the coffee, order the house white wine with lunch. Enjoy the je ne sais quoi about Parisian life. There is never enough time in a city like Paris, so slow down, enjoy the moment and take lots of photos along the way.2F8A5413

  • Your post is making me miss Paris! And all my trips to Europe. I absolutely agree with your advice on ‘do Paris slowly.’ it really is the only way to experience the city at its finest. I remember my first trip to Paris — my friend and I decided to part ways for a couple of hours, and I ended up having lunch (French onion soup, with garlic croutons, and a glass of rose) by myself next to the Notre Dame. Just me, sunglasses, brilliant sunshine, my food and wine, and I have never felt so classy and ‘grown up’ in my whole life! (I was 24 at the time). A memory I will cherish forever xo
