We try to make a bigger city part of our travels when we come to Europe. Museums, galleries, cafes, traffic, river-side strolling…all things we love.
This time we managed 3 days (2 nights) in Paris.
Like Brugge, it is a city all of a piece. It fits together. You can’t imagine it other than it is. We were in Vienna last time, and it also had the high white buildings; but it seemed some how sterile or alienating. Paris, on the other hand, looks magnificent and yet organic. Similar buildings, but not regimented. I loved the feeling of wholeness the city posessed.
We decided to see little in terms of particular places, but to walk and walk and walk between them. We carefully chose a few highlights for each day, and set off.
