When I woke up on the second day of my trip to Paris, I glanced outside and saw that it was raining. I *immediately* regretted not going and making it out to see the eiffel tower the day before. I pressed my luck in thinking that I’d be able to catch two days of sunlight IN A ROW while in Paris. Ha!
But you know what?
I am SO glad that it was raining that day…why? Because this is possibly my FAVORITE photowalk I have ever done. I don’t know what it was, but something about the dreary atmosphere & people running with umbrellas just made my experience so much more enjoyable. I felt like I had a true feel for the lifestlye in the city.
One thing I should make note of is the fence with the locks on it. It’s tradition that a married couple bring a lock and latch it on to the fence, then throw the keys in the sienne river. I don’t think you can get any more romantic than that. I joked with a buddy of mine about faking throwing a key just in case things “don’t” work out ;)
I stopped by the Louvre, but didn’t go in. (GASP!) Yeah, it’s just not my thing! (Don’t tell anyone, but while I appreciate art…I just get so bored in museums. Maybe it’s the kid in me, but I guess I’m just a bit more into seeing the ‘sights’.
On that note, here are the pics from the day:
