Paris Through my own eyes

Paris Through my own eyes, It feels magical if I look back to my first trip to Paris. I walked trough Paris with my iPhone. By walking in the French capital, I was able to make images and memories at the same time.

Paris is so photogenic.

This was the first-time ever that I was traveling to Paris. Earlier this Year I decided to take the step. This French-Capital was on my bucket-list already. So I thought that Summer 2018 was the right time to explore  the Parisien life-style. So I bought a train-ticket which was really cheap. From Liege-Belgium to the city of lights took me 3,5 hours. After 3,5 hours by train. I arrive at Gare du Nord. It is one of the big train-stations in Paris. I’m grateful that a big-city like Paris is so close to home.

For people who love’s photography, or other creative things. This French-Capital is a magic place. Paris is so photogenic. I’ve walked trough Paris with my iphone and try to shoot nice images. But in a big-city like Paris there is a stop-moment almost every five-10 minutes. So much spots are worth a picture you know?

Where to Lunch in Paris?

When you are early on the streets in Paris. You want to take a lunch at a nice spot. After your morning-walk. Because it was my first-time. I recognized that this city has so much places to lunch. You just can’t choose! There are so many options, do you feel me? From low-budget food spots to high-end hotels where you can enjoy your Lunch. I decided to take my Lunch at CoJean. Which is a Healthy-spot in this magic City. You find CoJean almost in everywhere in Paris. So you can order your healthy-meal very easy. It’s possible to pay with your creditcard or with cash. Also it’s possible to take-away and enjoy your lunch at a nice park.

Day one.

I took the train Wednesday-Morning to this amazing place on earth. When I was arrived at Gare Du Nord. I took a scooter-taxi to the Louvre. It goes very fast but I can’t recommend this to you. The bill was high and there are cheaper and more comfortable options that take you to the centre. For example:Uber  it’s really  handy when you visiting a big-city like this. After I arrived at the Louvre, I was lucky enough thanks to a colleague Blogger he give me a tip where I could leave my luggage. So after that I was free to go everywhere. I could check in my airbnb after 19.00 in the evening. That was a little bit pity. But in the afternoon I explored the Louvre Neighborhood. During the evening I took the Uber to the place that I booked, where I  was sleeping these three days. I must say that this was my first-experience with AirBnb. During my first trips I always spend my nights in hotels. So I was curious how I experience Airbnb. But it was not that good. The room that I booked had bad-windows. For me it was a reason to spend only two-days in that house. The Lady was very kind I must say. But a Room with a bad-window, is not done for me.

Day Two.

On Day Two I decided two search for a nice break-fast place, because I was hungry. So I put on my iPhone and searched for a nice breakfast spot. After some searching I discovered a place called:Kozy . I’ve ordered a good breakfast and the people who worked there where very friendly. The lady where I ordered my breakfast asked me: where I came from? So I said: Now I’m from Holland and she told me: I lived in Holland one year for my study how cool is that ! She invited me to come to here mini-concert in the night. So I was happy because I didn’t had any plans in the night. So I said: yes I would like to see your concert. During the day I’ve spend my time in the city-centre en did some window-shopping, nothing special.

In the evening I attended her concert, and she was surprised to see me. She was like: I didn’t expect you to come here. But I told her that I was happy to experience some local Parisien vibes. It was very nice to see her playing her own instrument together with her boys. People who share there passion in front of audience.

Day Three.

On day-Three I decided to change from Air BNB to a third-class hotel for one night. I was not satisfied with the AirBNB that I booked. So I decided to say at hotel:Hotel Palym which was a good choice. In the afternoon I’ve checked in the hotel and everything was fine. I was so happy that I felt in sleep right-away on the bed. The night before I didn’t sleep because there was so much noice outside. In the evening I’ve walked trough the other side of Paris. The hotel is located near Gare Du Lyon. It is a train-station and from there you can go to the south of France if you want. After some dinner in the evening, I did a walk and discovered more from this amazing place. I expected Paris as I saw from earlier images.

One of the last images that I shot, is the one I loved the most during my trip to Paris. It was close to Gare Du Nord and you can see that it’s a beautiful street.

Day Four.

Day four was my travel-day, during the morning I was packing my suitcase and bags. I had to catch my train from Paris-North to Liege. The train-journey was quite good. I’ve arrived at home in the evening.

I want to thank all the nice people that I meet during this trip. Now I’m ask myself: Is London the next city that I visit?
