Paris Photo Diary

Paris, the capital city of France, the City of Lights.

I read somewhere that going up the Eiffel Tower is the ideal Paris baptism and I couldn't agree more. The view from the top is so spectacular that waiting in line was worth it.
(If you're planning to go up the tower or to other museums, I suggest getting a Paris Pass for "skip-the-line" privileges.)
From the outstanding city planning to the French architecture, this city has so much to offer. I literally had to choose from 1000+ photos.

Notre Dame Cathedral

The Luxor Obelisk at the the center of the Place de la Concorde was originally located at the entrance to Luxor Temple, Egypt and was gifted to France by Muhammed Ali, Khedive.

Arc De Triomphe, one of the famous monuments in the city. It is located at the end of Champs-Elysees which is famous for theatres, cafes and luxury shops.

Galeris Lafayette, an upmarket French department store.

So happy I got to see the love lock bridge before they took it down.

And finally the Louvre, my favorite! One of the largest museums and historic monuments in Paris. The louvre was originally a royal palace but now it houses more than 7,500 artworks. The Louvre pyramid was later added and functions as an entry way to the museum. Designed by my sister's favorite architect I.M. Pei. No wonder.

The Mona Lisa, it's smaller than you think. Haha!

My sister would have cried. LOL

Paris is so big, 5 days wasn't enough. I'm not complaining though. I'm happy I got to check this off my bucket list.

Much love,

Hi guys!

What better way to start my Paris entries than an OOTD at one of the most iconic structures in the world, ze Eiffel Tower.

The 1,063 ft tall tower in Champ De Mars was our first destination in France (I mean, who wouldn't want to see this first, right?). It was named after Alexandre Gustav Eiffel, who designed and constructed this tower as an entry arch to the 1889 World's Fair.

The tower has 3 levels, with restaurants and gift shops on the first and second floor. The third level, which is the highest accessible floor to the public is 906 ft above the ground. Imagine the view up there! 

Stay tuned for my Paris Photo Diary for more photos!

Much love,
