PARIS, THE CITY OF LOVE

Hey again!

Finally I’m writing about our experience in the wonderful city of Paris. This city stole our hearts… 

“Des yeux qui font baisser les miens
Un rire qui se perd sur sa bouche
Voilà le portrait sans retouche
De l’homme auquel j’appartiens

Quand il me prend dans ses bras
Il me parle tout bas
Je vois la vie en rose…”

The song we listened to every minute.

Paris is one of the most beautiful cities I’ve ever seen. Everything is beautiful, even the traffic lights. Each building was beautiful. Each street. And the metro stations too.

We hope to come back soon ❤

First of all, we stayed a few days in a beautiful house from BEHOMM, a private home exchange community for creatives and design lovers. Then you can travel and stay in a home for free. To travel this way is so much better, you can meet the owners of the house you’re staying in, you know better the culture and have more freedom. It’s just a different experience. So if you are a creative or have a tasty designed house anywhere in the world, you must check it out!

WHAT TO VISIT:

This captivating city is huge and we didn’t have enough time to visit everything but here are the places we visited:

  • Obviously, the Eiffel Tower and its surroundings. Try to visit it at night too, when it lights up it’s magic!
  • Champs Elysées et Champs de Mars
  • Pont des Arts with “La Vie en Rose” playing…
  • Montmartre, where the artists and painters are.
  • Le Malais
  • Seine River perfect for a walk, so romantic ❤
  • Musée du Louvre and Musée d’Orsay
  • Sacré Coeur
  • Place de la Concorde 
  • Place Vendome, majestic! We went at 9am in the morning and was empty. Amazing!
  • Tuileries Gardens
  • Notre Dame
  • La Madeleine
  • Arc de Triomphe, please go to the top for INCREDIBLE views. Biel has a photo of it on his Instagram. Each corner was beautiful. Inside there is a video that explains the story of the construction. You must see it! ❤

I know we’ve missed A LOT of beautiful places but the next time we will visit them for sure ❤

Rue de Saint-Dominique

We went at 9am to this street by bike to have a Parisian breakfast at the typical French “Bistrot”. We rented bikes with a public company called Vélib. You just have to buy a ticket and they let you rent any bike for 24h. (you have to be careful because for each bike they charge you 150€ as a “warranty”. We rented 3 bikes and they charged me 450€ that they haven’t returned to me yet).

But the experience of renting bikes was amazing, we had so much fun 🙂 There are many more bike lanes than Barcelona, so is so much easier!

Montmartre

Montmartre is a little district behind the Sacré Coeur basilica. There are a lot of artists, painters and musicians playing the accordion. Just a lovely environment ❤

The first night, we had a romantic dinner in a Bistrot with the most beautiful sights, the illuminated Tour Eiffel…while we were listening to “la vie en rose” ❤

An important thing: WHERE TO EAT:

  • Café Antonia at Le Bristol: Just the perfect spot for a classy lunch or tea time! As you may know, Le Bristol is the best hotel in Paris. We had the opportunity to stay in a room with amazing views of Paris and the Eiffel Tower.
  • Le Potager de Charlotte: As I said on my Instagram post, is the cutest vegan place to eat! 100% vegan ❤  Hardworking and veeeery nice owners.
  • Love Juice Paris for breakfast (vegan) This is where my açaí bowl I posted on Instagram come from.
  • Café Montorgueil – please try their vegetarian burguer… Little bit oily but DELICIOUS!
  • Any restaurant in Rue Montorgueil, the typical Parisian street you must visit.

  1. Paris, toujours Paris!
    La ciudad del amor, de la luz, de bohemios y artistas:

    Sous le ciel de Paris
    Edith Piaf (1915-1963)

    Sous le ciel de Paris
    S’envole une chanson
    Hum Hum
    Elle est née d’aujourd’hui
    Dans le coeur d’un garçon
    Sous le ciel de Paris
    Marchent des amoureux
    Hum Hum
    Leur bonheur se construit
    Sur un air fait pour eux

    Sous le pont de Bercy
    Un philosophe assis
    Deux musiciens quelques badauds
    Puis les gens par milliers
    Sous le ciel de Paris
    Jusqu’au soir vont chanter
    Hum Hum
    L’hymne d’un peuple épris
    De sa vieille cité

    Près de Notre Dame
    Parfois couve un drame
    Oui mais à Paname
    Tout peut s’arranger
    Quelques rayons
    Du ciel d’été
    L’accordéon
    D’un marinier
    L’espoir fleurit
    Au ciel de Paris

    Sous le ciel de Paris
    Coule un fleuve joyeux
    Hum Hum
    Il endort dans la nuit
    Les clochards et les gueux
    Sous le ciel de Paris
    Les oiseaux du Bon Dieu
    Hum Hum
    Viennent du monde entier
    Pour bavarder entre eux

    Et le ciel de Paris
    A son secret pour lui
    Depuis vingt siècles il est épris
    De notre Ile Saint Louis
    Quand elle lui sourit
    Il met son habit bleu
    Hum Hum
    Quand il pleut sur Paris
    C’est qu’il est malheureux
    Quand il est trop jaloux
    De ses millions d’amants
    Hum Hum
    Il fait gronder sur nous
    Son tonnerr’ éclatant
    Mais le ciel de Paris
    N’est pas longtemps cruel
    Hum Hum
    Pour se fair’ pardonner
    Il offre un arc en ciel

  2. Hola Carlota, hace poco me puse a leer tus blogs de nuevo y te quería decir que las fotografías que subes son increíblemente bonitas. Me encanta como usas la luz y otros efectos (algunas están borrosas y quedan perfectas.) Bueno eso, soy una chica que vive en las afueras de Washington D.C., EEUU, y que tienes una fan de tu trabajo aquí por si alguna vez vienes a visitar 😉
