When I think about Paris, I visualize scooters, lights and harmonious sounds. Additionally, tree lined boulevards and musical street performers. My Parisian sentiments I'm sure coincides with someone else's out there. I've been to Paris before and every time I'm in Paris, I can't help but fall in love with it more. There's no other place like it. Some people may say it's over-rated, I say it's highly-rated. I'll be sharing some photos that my friend and I took all around town. This trip was back in April and I'm still daydreaming about the city of lights. Click Read More below for more.
Paris in April is still calm and without the plethora of tourists, you are able to go around and the lines in the museums are not that bad. This bridge is Pont de Bir-Hakeim.
"The last time I was in Paris, I didn't have time to walk on Champs-Élysées, so I made sure to take a stroll and enjoy the atmosphere this time."
I have an affinity with vintage pictures and old movies. Looking at this black and white picture is reminiscent of an old picture from the 50s
Every time I see this pyramid, I can't help but remember the Da Vinci Code movie. Has anyone seen that film before? The ending part?
Rodin museum is a must if you will visit Paris in the future. There's ample amount of structures and statues to gaze upon. In retrospect, I think I liked this museum better than the Louvre :)
I really liked this small souvenir shop nestled in the middle of busy Montmarte. You may not see it, but there's like a million people walking in this street. Montmarte is the idea of Paris that I've always had in my mind ever since I was a little kid.
It's actually my first time going to Galeries Lafayette. I've never seen a department store like it. It's filled with products I've never even heard of before. Bonus: the intricate, fabulously design ceiling!
Since Notre Dame was off limits, the best place to admire it is from this specific place. The closer you get, the more people/tourist you stumble upon.
This is one of my fave photos because it exudes movement, I was really walking while taking this photo--but this was before I fell off the street curb.
While on the river boat tour, you get to see Paris by the Seine. It's a different perspective, you're lower than the streets. So everything seems larger than life. The Eiffel tower hasn't twinkled during this time yet.
I enjoyed this quick trip to Paris. My good friend Edward and I had a great time walking around and going to the museum and traversing the city. I took soooo many photos, but here's the photos I want to share with you all.

When I travel, I like to share the world through my eyes while capturing photos that will forever remain with me. I'm Leo by the way, U.S based wanderlust.
