This afternoon we’ve seen some of the sights we really had looked forward to while in Paris. Though we do have metro-tickets, we decided to start walking from our place at Pigelle Metro station.
Before we knew it, we reached the river Seine and realized we would probably be able to reach some of the places by foot.
A couple of pit stops on the road.
We really don’t like when it’s too crowded or too many tourists, so today we got to practice being around crowds for a bit and also enjoyed our walking a bit extra since we could take some roads that were less busy.
The parks and river side-walks brighten up the city feeling a lot.
So, we got to see the Eiffel tower, Arc de Triomphe, the obelisk, the opera, petit and the grand Palais, Palais de Chaillote and Moulin Rouge and come back to our apartment, all by walking.
Of course we’ve seen lots and lots more things, people and situations, but these were some of the city’s major places. Pretty cool! And we have enjoyed it a lot.
Now, spending a quiet evening at “home”.
