Hard to believe earlier this summer I was actually in Paris for 36 hours. This was the first European stop on my 17-day trip with my friends. I’m really proud of how much my friend Lisa and I were able to do during that short time period – we saw the Louvre, Notre Dame, Eiffel Tower, Père Lachaise Cemetery, Versailles, Sainte-Chapelle, Montmartre, cruised the Seine, tried all different types of French food – all while pushing ourselves on virtually no sleep, jet lag and feet that were already tired and blistered from three days of walking in New York City. We rode the metro with the chic Parisians, the most beautiful breed of people I’ve ever seen – with their perfect skin and hair, girls in mint denim jackets and boys with elbow patches and man-purses. We saw the Mona Lisa and the graves of Jim Morrison, Chopin and Oscar Wilde, ate the most incredible crepes, and bought artwork on the streets of Montmartre.
These are some of my favorite photos I captured in France:
1-5 Versailles; 6-10 The Louvre; 11-12 Champs-Élysées; 13-14 Montmartre; 15 Notre Dame; 16-19 Père Lachaise Cemetery; 20-21 Le Marais; 22 Different seating options on the metro platform; 23-25 Eiffel Tower and cruising the Seine; 26 Me, standing at the window of my hotel and admiring the city view.
