After going to Lourdes, we went back to Paris to visit the other must-see locations there. We went to so many historical places and honestly, 10 days wasn’t enough. It’s a dream destination of almost all the girls out there and now that I’ve been there, I’m not surprised why. I wish I could live there, really. Every street seems so magical- the city brings me so many wishes, hope and love. Here are some of the photos from my last three days in the city.
The Uy siblings in black and white behind The Louvre. See, I told you we had a theme. Hahaha.
Before going inside the museum, we had lunch at Café Marly which was just a few meters away from The Louvre. Aside form the scrumptious meal, we enjoyed sitting there and just looking at everyone go crazy and take photos of the area.
Here are some of the photos I took inside The Louvre:
Portrait of a man by Marco Marziale. I still don’t know why it’s displayed like this, unlike the other paintings who are just up against a wall. Anybody know why?
The famous Mona Lisa by Leonardo da Vinci. Sa wakas, nakita ko na rin soya sa personal. Haha very artista lang!
Aphrodite de Milo or better known as Venus De Milo. Carved by Alexandros of Antioch.
French military and political leader Napoleon Bonaparte’s dining table. Just wow.
Love is in the air at Pont des Arts. It’s a pedestrian bridge which crosses the Seine River. I’d love to put a lock there someday.
After The Louvre, we went to Musee d’Orsay to see more artwork. There were paintings inside by Monet, Manet, Degas,Renoir, Cézanne, Seurat, Sisley, Gauguin and Van Gogh.
I wasn’t able to take photos inside since it wasn’t allowed. Sad. Okay na ang photographic memory sakin!
With my brother Vince at Jardin de Tuileries. This pathway is just so gorgeous. I’m sure all the bloggers who’d pass here would stop and have their photos taken.
Fete foraine des Tuileries. It’s a very colourful an fun carnival! I wanted to be a kid again so I went here alone and rode some of the rides. It was such a nice experience riding the air swing and seeing the city of Paris when I was on top.
The Eiffel Tower. I can’t even explain what I felt when I saw it. Paris brought me so much joy- and to experience it being with my family is so euphoric. It changed my outlook in life and taught me so many things, not just because I was able to see their museums and such , but because it broadened my perspective in life. I can’t wait for my next travel- and it’s already this Thursday with my blogger bests. I can’t wait! BMS.
