when in paris. (a guest post by katie)

I just got home from a month-long journey through Europe. I stopped through England and Holland, both countries I've lived in, and two very short stays in Belgium, topping it off with two weeks in France.

On my very last day, we took a train into Paris early in the morning, leaving us with an entire day to wander around Paris. I've done the big things before; climbed the Eiffel Tower, visited Notre Dame, toured the Louvre, walked the Champs Elysees, ect.

This time though, I had a very clear list in my mind about what I wanted to do: eat escargot, visit the Shakespeare & Co. Bookstore (and buy a book!) and make a wish at Kilometer Zero.

Paris was, to put it lightly, wonderful. I'd forgotten how gorgeous Notre Dame is. Out of the big three, that is, the Eiffel Tower, the Arc de Triumphe, and Notre Dame, Notre Dame is by far my favorite. It's such a magnificent building.

So tell me: Have you ever been to Paris, and if so, what's your favorite place? If you haven't been, what specific places in Paris would you like to go to?

Katie: 16. coffee+photos. Uses a Mac. Wishes she was Alice. Reads too many books, splashes through too many rain puddles. Related to George Harrison. Wants to work at Pixar, own the Eiffel Tower, adopt a child, eat escargot. Clearly, she dreams big. You can find her here


  1. Oh,Notre Dame looks so beautiful!!!

    I've never been anywhere,but the east coast of the US,but hey at least that some where! :)

  2. I went there twice but I wasn't old enough to appreciate it's beauty. I'd say my favourite place of both my trips was disney-land. {Try not to blame 7-year old me}


  3. I loved this post! I'm so jealous that you got to go to Europe. xD

  4. I haven't been travel to Paris. Wanna travel to there one day! It really an awesome place1 :D

  5. Shakespear and Co looks brill! Though maybe a little cluttered!

  6. I have never been to Paris, though I plan on traveling there someday. I would really love to visit the Eiffel Tower. Lovely guest post! :)
