"P" Is For Paris

As the Passenger to Paradise, I have to have a little of the bohemian artist in me. That's why I love Paris. The last time we visited the city, we took a bus in from the airport and got off at the Opera stop. From there we pulled our roller bags (Passenger to Paradise style) for several blocks along the streets to Hotel Opera Cadet. This is a lovely little hotel located a short distance below Montmartre, a destination filled with art lore and history.

The art museums and galleries may be what I love most about the city. Sadly because of a strike La Louvre was closed most of the time we were in Paris. But the art galleries were open, and it was wonderful to visit them. We also enjoyed strolling along the River Seine and using the train system which became another problem later due to the strike.

Paris is truly the "City of Light." I look forward to another visit and the inspiration it will bring.

I've never been to Paris, but that is another "some day" for me. Loved reading this, I felt like I was strolling along with you. :)

I've not been to Paris too, but I so much look forward to going. This was a nice evocative post.

Thank you, Julie and Myne, for your comments. I enjoy the memory of strolling along the historic, artistic streets of Paris.

Hi Monti. I love Paris so much I've devoted a whole blog to it. I love to visit and will be there again in mid June. Have always been in winter so this time the scenery will be different.

I've noted the Hotel you stayed at. I hadn't chosen ours yet and it is good to get a recommendation. Nothing like Paris for inspiration for a romantic novel.

Wonderful you'll get to visit in summer, L'Aussie. We were last there during an early December when Christmas lights edged the Champs Elysee. It was spectacular.

Thanks for visiting. Great to meet you.

I would love to visit Paris one day. I would hope if I get the opportunity, I could take my time and experience the culture. But, I'll take whatever I can get.
