I'm alone here today so it's Paris time!!

Thursday, April 28, 2011

Hey everyone! Caro left town for a working trip to Paris today and I know she hates every second of it. Not only is it work she isn't a real Paris fan in contrast to me. I love Paris with all my heart so I thought I use this moment of uncontrolled freedom to post about my love for Paris.

Seine
I only visited Paris twice in my live but what I loved most about both times is not only typical for Paris but more a whole France thing- the French are way more relaxed than we Germans are. They have a smoother way of life, don't worry so much about the tiny unimportant things in life and they aren't as pedantic. So going to France for me is always like getting rid of the world around me which is always too correct and actually be free to be me- sit around and drink wine (they have wonderful wine) and just enjoy my time.
Notre Dame
Then their is the architecture. I'm a real sucker for old buildings and could walk around just staring at buildings for hours. For me those are the mirror of time and I like to imagine how it was to live at the time a certain building was finished. Okay I admit the Middle Ages aren't very nice but I always blend out the not so nice facts- that's what fantasy is for after all. ;) But imagine sitting in a street cafe enjoying a cup of coffee or a glass of wine and just looking at Notre Dame (not that I could actually afford that- the prizes there are just O_o).
Dôme des Invalides
Then we have the Art. Paris has some of the best museums and I love to look at art nearly as much as at buildings.
Louvre
I only have a picture of the Louvre but I actually prefer Musé d´Orsay- they have a wonderful collection of the most famous impressionists. Unfortunately no wine in there.

Grave Jim Morrison      -      Grave Heinrich Heine

Then we have the history and I don't mean only the heavy on ewe heard about in school. I mean pop culture history. and yes I actually agree to make a trip to a graveyard is kind of weird but we were young and didn't know any better (let's blame it on the wine).
Anon in the Metro Station *wink
And then we have the fun you will have while being drunk in the Metro. And finally it's just pure bliss to be on the Eiffel Tower just look over Paris.
So that is why I love Paris. Perhaps someday Caro will tell us why she doesn't. ;)

Do you have a favorite city? Which is yours and why?

LMAO I should have known you were up to no good! I can't leave you alone 1 day!

Oh my...that is NOT the Paris I saw today. And i really don't see how Parisian are more relaxed...lol ok so now I'm really worried about Germany =P

Ahem...Paris, A tale by Caroline

- Train arrives at Paris train station.
- Everyone runs (coz really walking that fast is like running to me) to the Underground.
- Then people stare at you and you sweat like a pig in the underground coz it's so stuffy in there
- Then you run and dodge people in the street to get to work.
-At work. Parisian have a weird sense of humor. I felt like the country bumpkin (yes I use words like bumpkin LOL)
- At lunch, people go to the Gym ...O_o really? REALLY??? lol
- You leave work. You run to the underground. Sweat like a pig. Run to the train.

I now have blistered feet from running all day LOL
I hate Paris. But i admit it COULD be interesting as a tourist *roll eyes* ;)

Please, I hope i don't have to go back for a long time

Awww, poor Caro. I actually like Paris, but I bet it's not much fun when you have to work.

It's hard to pick a favourite city. I loved Rome for it's ancient culture, but I also adore London. The English are much easier to understand than those Italians!

*crawls into a hole and cries, the country bumpkin I am*

@pattepoilue Poor hun *throws kissies at feet*

@Celine Ohhh I want to go to London. And Rome too. And yes I actually live in Europe ^_^

@Blodeuedd Awww don't...I wasn't in many either. *group bumpkin hug*

pattepoilue said...

@Celine Oh yes London is awesome! I loved it. I wish I was there tomorrow *g* And I agree about English being easier to understand!

@Blodeuedd The country is nice too. Really who needs to travel all the time. *hugs* We country bumpkins understand each others ;)

I love Paris, and the food is to die for, but I have two favorite cities - Rome and Edinburgh. Sigh. Want to go back...
