Merely a small compilation of the photographs I took throughout my day in Paris. I had such an incredibly wonderful time. Paris is such a beautiful and picturesque place. It has completely stolen my heart.
My main reasoning for wanting to go to Paris was to go to the Louvre. My expectations didn’t even remotely live up to the reality of what a magnificent place it is. The artwork inside is incredible, and the architecture.. wow. The detailing that has gone into some of the rooms is something in itself. I could spend a day just admiring the beauty of that alone.
Visiting the Louvre has completely re-opened my love for art and architecture. Knowing I’m not on the career path I thought I would be for over 10 years of my life is hard as it’s something I was so set upon and I think that is why I gave up on art and architecture. That’s about to change.
Paris, you were amazing and beautiful. I can’t wait to come back and discover more of you.
Have you been to Paris? Maybe you’ve written a post on your time there, leave a comment and link me. I can’t wait to read about your times in Paris.
Long bus journeys are nothing to me and so after travelling altogether for almost 24 hours I had finally arrived in Paris, albeit 2 hours later than I was supposed to. Just as well I didn’t have any kind of itinerary or plan for my day ahead or it would have completely messed that up.
When I mentioned to people I was going to Paris just for the day many thought I was mad, but honestly it was great. I think if I had went for longer it would have been great too but the day has just made me long to go back again and again.
Just a very small selection of pictures from my day in Paris which I’ll speak about more later on.
All I can say is, if you want to go to Paris, go. I’m not going to lie my day was spent pretty much being your typical tourist but it was worth it and it was great. I feel like I had a day jam packed with so much and I would have probably done more had I organised my time but sometimes it’s good to just go somewhere and not know what the day is going to consist of, and that’s exactly what I did here.
Paris, you were amazing. Until next time.. Au Revoir.
This time last year I had hopped on a plane from Glasgow and landed in Berlin for a whirlwind couple of days.
The reasoning behind going? I won’t lie, it was to see Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds (although I didn’t have a ticket, but managed to buy one there).
I had such an amazing time in Berlin. It was a great experience and it was amazing learning more about the city. For now all I have are the memories, the pictures and the occasional letter for my fine. Oops.
I thought I would share just a few of my favourite pictures from my time in Berlin.
And my absolute favourite happens to be this one. Mother with her dead son by Käthe Kollwitz.
This has to be one of the most powerful things ever. Walking into the place and there being nothing else but this statue, standing itself in the middle of the room with a giant hole in the ceiling above it (apparently it looks breathtakingly beautiful with the rain pouring down over it). It really is an emotional place and somewhere that I would definitely suggest visiting if in Berlin.
Feel free to leave me a comment below. Tell me about your experiences in Berlin.
