Europe Trip: A Blissful Day 1 in Paris (Part 2)
you know you're in Paris when you don't know how to pronounce the road's name LOL - SizzlingSuzai
Photo overloaded is essential in all my travelog. so, be prepared! This 2nd part and onwards will illustrate in details of my Paris excursion. well, we actually landed on a night before when all the shops already closed and being stranded in Louise Michel (northwest of the capital) which locating our hotel has preventing us playing any tourist game anymore. we settled down, resting and just alluring our first night in Paris. yup will share my stay in separate post.
The very first place being visited is non-other than everyone's desire, Tour Eiffel which i've enthusiastically shared in the Part 1 here. it blows my mind and until now, it still feels like a dream. well, spending 4 days and 3 nights in Paris allowed me to pay a visit to few numbers of other famous attractions.
Cathédrale Notre Dame
Avowed by my babe aka the tourist guide haha you will not aroused over this if you've been to Italy LOL haha yup honestly, i dazed over this cathedral and so anticipated to explore the interior. nevertheless, looking at the snake trail outside it, i surrendered. i'd say the side and back angle are looking more stunning compare to the front one. you could reach this place by stopping at the Metro Line 4 station named Cite
The Square Jean XXIII (Bedside of Notre Dame)
Walk along the street that just behind the Notre Dame, you will stumble upon a park named as mentioned. admittedly, i faced difficulty to memorize all the names since its written in French language. haha yup i googled all of it and well, thats explaining why this Paris blog post is being dragged longer than expected. looking at the photos, i'd say that October is the right time to visit. a simply beautiful park. oh, got toilets at the entrance! LOL
Pont De L'archevêché / Pont Des Arts (Love Bridge)
Lovers locked their love and the keys are being thrown into the River Seine. i don't really get the idea of locking your fondness at certain place and leave it there because i do always think that it should be carried closely to everywhere we go. different perspective though. btw this 'love gesture' just started in 2008 and recently, in June 2014 a part of the bridge collapsed due to the massive load of the locks.
In spite of that, this locked/Love bridge is in my bucket list. hahaha imma hopeless romantic though which probably be one of the main reason why do i fall in love with Paris so much. Out of sudden, this place looks so romantic despite the story behind it. plus-minus it was a great weather which contributes to the beautiful shots above. Oh, this bridge is just behind the Notre Dame which you just need to walk across that Square Jean XXIII park.
Arc De Triomphe Du Carrousel
This arc is basically one of a Paris landmark yet i don't have any idea when my babe perusing me to snap a photo with it LOL here for more chronologically facts bout it. anyhow, again it was a beautiful bright shiny day which makes Paris looks even more lovable through my naked eyes. well, it is just strongly stands right in front of Pyramid De Louvre
Goshh i love the first shot so much!!! haha sorry i am that kinda person, a hyperactive one and i do celebrate my satisfaction (of finally meeting the Pyramid Louvre!) very well. so, this avant-garde architectural is also one of Paris's landmark and being completed in 1989, a year after i born! there is a lobby and a shopping mall beneath it with few cafes for you to finally take breath and sipping some caffeine. no worry as you will be coming underneath it first before risen to the above ground when you take the Metro Line 7 or 14 and stop at the Pyramides station.
The last photo is taken through the Arc Triomphe Du Carrausel. can you see the red thunder llighting down at the center? real stunning huh? it looks like a thunder and during this hour, i guess it was 7pm when the muse is closing. yup, this place is even more gorgeous at night. Subhanallah idk how to elaborate it but it was so calm with the cloudless sky and extremely divine.
