Fall in Love With Paris
Paris is one of those places you always remember. From having spent a little time there as a young student on vacation the memories are quite clear and enduring. From being a normal student and partying too hard with the following enormous hangover and making an attempt to recover on the steps of Sacre-Coeur. Passing time in quiet reflection at such locations as the Jeu de Paume. attempting to get your head round the weirdness and wackiness of the likes of Dali, Magritte and Picasso after having savoured the serenity And peace of the likes of Monet and Camille Pissarro. Paris definitely has a great range of life. Yes France might have its socioeconomic issues like everybody else but like others they manage.
You’ll find it quite easily forgotten about the troubles and strains of normal life in specific portions of Paris. Life in Paris has the capability to marry successfully the new with the old.
Next to the grace and Style of the more established Paris you’ve got the busy vibrancy of the new. You have in Paris, some of the planet’s most stunning buildings and some of the most striking pieces of modern design. Just down the road from Style and Elegance you have buildings covered in bullet marks and fading plaster that clearly have not been looked at since 1945. Yet stop and ask the classic Parisian why this is and definitely regarding the fading plasterwork and bookmarks and like the madrilenos asked about some of Madrid’s fading glory they are pretty much as certain to shrug their shoulders and imply that there are actually more vital issues in the world.
Who is to claim they’re wrong and indeed in many cases they’re not. But back to why I like Paris. The answer lies with the undeniable fact that with the minimum of effort everyone seems to be catered for in Paris. While the great majority of us relax among some of the most lovely urban parkland to be found or gazing at some of the most shocking design, the more high brow among us can visit some of the worlds best museums and art studios.
From the powerful grace of the Musee de Louvre ( the planet’s biggest museum everybody please note ) to a few of the more obscure but no less deserving museums e. G the Musee Carnavalet, and the Musee National du Moyen-Age, Paris has something for everybody. Relax and chill in some of the most pretty parkland in the world like Le Jardin du Luxembourg or Le Garden des Tuileries while your art loving partners peruse the world-renowned artefacts of the Louvre! For the evangelistically inclined among us there’s the awe-inspiring grace of Notre Lady and for the sheer natural view of Paris there’s always the steps of Sacre Coeur in Montmartre which is where we came in if I’m not so mistaken. Yes there’s something for everybody in Paris.
