PARIS, France

December 2012

  • Day 1
My first entry for my Travel blog would be very dreamy since I am featuring Paris, France. Who on earth wouldn't dream to be in Paris? Almost everyone does, right? As promised from my recent post I have here photographs during my 5 days in Paris. Well, 5 days includes the allotted time for travel.
Sorry if  I'm a tad late in  posting since I had fever due to very cold weather in France and I had to convince my lazy butt off to work on these photos. Deliberating which one to show on blog took me two sleepless nights, finally I have these photos which I think would be worth sharing.

December 23, 8AM was our departure. Mama got me a package tour on a Hop On Hop Off bus. Inclusive of the hotel and ticket for Disneyland.. It took us more than 12 hours to reach Paris! Wheeeww! Way too long uh?

Stop over in Switzerland.. If only I can buy all these chocolates and give it away for my lovely viewers, I would be happy to do so. Swiss Chocolates are the best, everyone knows that!

Yes, this is Legal! And very vulgar uh?!

The lift going to Basilisque du Sacre-Coeur de Montmartre.. For only 1.70 Euros.

We arrived much earlier, the lifts are still closed. So were going to take the steps.

The view from the Basilisque.

Basilisque du Sacre-Coeur de Montmartre. Built between 1875 and 1914 on the "hill of martyrs". It is seated on hills that makes the Basilica shine out as a sign of hope. Elevated or situated on high place signifies or equal to each and everyone's hopes.

"Up there, the Lord is present. Up there, somebody is praying for me."

The basilica is home to a large and very fine pipe organ built by Aristide Cavaillé-Coll.

Have you seen it?  :)

Art Nouveau detail on the Metro sign.

8AM. Still the sun isn't shining bright, maybe she's ashamed with these lights coz' this somewhat outshine her.

They didn't get my name right.

Notre Dame, home for the hunch-back bell ringer, Quasimodo.

Side details of Notre Dame.

Photo bomb at a souvenir shop.

The Louvre, central landmark of Paris!

Behind me is the Jardin des Tuileries, a public garden located between the Louvre Museum and the Place de la Concorde.

  •  Day 2        
Place de La Concorde and  Eiffel Tower.
We waited from dusk till night  to witness how Paris transforms into a different place when it is wonderfully lit. You can't even notice that you are still on that very same place, just imagine how rich the history of Paris, that's how magical the feeling is being in here.


Eiffel Tower at daytime.

My weakness! Vintage cars. *Ugh, Actually everything vintage.

Close-up of the Eiffel Tower.

At night time.

No wonder why The Eiffel Tower is the most-visited paid monument in the world.

Under repair, they're planning to put first floor or sort of a lobby for those waiting for the lift going to sommet.

Blessed cow! Even if you're not a pro in photography, Eiffel Tower is effortlessly photogenic!

Just awhile I discovered that every hour, the Tower beams this whimsical white tiny lights. I suppose to give some climax or to cheer up the visitors.

  • Day 3                                                    
I'm dying to go home already, not because I didn't enjoy the trip but because the weather is too odd for me.  I had fever plus the coughs and sore throat, I grabbed every chance to enjoy the trip but I really wanted to take a long nap. :) Last destination is Disneyland, but boy! I believe the temperature is between -4 to -5 Celsius. This is my first time in experiencing this cold, wearing too thick clothes which kinda heavy.. And walking around Disneyland? Oh no, I'm close to having hypothermia! But still, I managed to take pictures and that is all for you guys! :)

Disneyland Hotel behind me!

Disneyland Paris is celebrating their 20th year!

Merry Christmas!

In Adventure Land!

Another interesting story about my trip is while on the bus, I've got a glimpse of some countries and cities along the way. First are Firenze and Parma in Milano, but i don't have much to say about this. In Bologna, they started experiencing snow and I'm kind of amazed on how their streams are milky green. What fascinates me the most are Como and Switzerland. Como is sort of a junction parting the ways to Switzerland and France, the Lake of Como seated on the foot of Alps mountains and their town surrounding the lake makes a panoramic view plus the perfectly inclined fogs as if to create a breathtaking view that every photographer would grab chances to take a shot of it. The latter, Zurich Switzerland was a wonderland for me! As if I was a kid staring at a miniature White Christmas Town. I laughed at the thought when I saw the Zurich mountain and tell myself, "I often see this mountain on my milk bottles or chocolate bars but i never expect to see it in real. "

Perhaps, I ain't too lucky, we can't get off the bus yet and the windows were a bit foggy that we couldn't achieve any clear photos.

That's all folks!
Hope you enjoy it!

Watch out for my next travel diaries. It may not be as dreamy as Paris, but i will make sure it will be helpful for all my viewers.. Plan your trip now! Make sure to include Paris in your bucket list! See yah!
