Wandering About: Paris (2006)

It’s summer, we’re almost in August, which means that all the people at work will be going away for almost the whole month (yes people, that’s a thing here in Barcelona… I don’t get it either). It also means that I will be working all alone for most of the month.

That doesn’t mean that I don’t get to travel. If you’re following this blog for a while now, you know that I DO travel quite a bit. So I thought that maybe I would start sharing some pics of the places I’ve been throughout the years. Sounds good?

Ideally I would to this in chronological order, but given that before 2005 all my photos are physical and at Portugal, I’ll start with a more recent trip :).

In February 2006 I went (for my third time) to Paris, this time with friends. I was never so cold in my life than on those few days, but I loved it.

The pyramid of the Louvre Museum:

This was also my journey with the coolest photos, lol. So, have you been to Paris? Do you want to go someday? 🙂

*** ohhh, I had forgotten about this one, it’s the city of Paris viewed from the Eiffel Tower***

    I’ve been to Paris before! My mum and I went together as a sort of consolation because we thought I didn’t get into the exchange program (which I did end up getting into though). I really liked it there and it showed that I had a much better sense of direction than my mum.
    Some weird things happened though. E.g. my mum asked a cop for directions, in English, and he answered in French. I understood him but most people who ask others in English probably wouldn’t have had a clue as to what he was saying.
    And then there was this random guy on the street asking “Tu es une salope?”, which basically means “Are you a slut?”. I wasn’t wearing anything provocative just to be clear.
    Other than that, most people were really nice (except for one waiter) and we had a good time there. It’s a beautiful city!

    I’ve been to Paris, twice! I have been obsessed with that city ever since I went there the first time. I’ve been to Disneyland Paris too. I wrote a post about my second trip to Paris on my blog!
    Have you ever had any encounters with the bracelet-selling people that are usually near the Sacre Coeur? They were there when I went in 2009 and they basically run up to you and tie a bracelet on you and then try to make you pay for it!

    Hopefully someday I can go! I’m saving up for it…I’m dreaming of a Euro trip but I need lots of money haha I wish it grew on trees, lol. Your pictures are amazing even if it was taken almost a decade ago. 🙂 I will keep on dreaming until it becomes a reality!
