Travel Photography | The Paris Dream: Day 1

4 years ago, we sat at a coffee shop in Mall of the Emirates thinking about our goals and dreams. We have read from somewhere that writing down your goals and dreams will increase the possibility of you achieving them. So we not only wrote them, we drew them. And then we prayed that the Lord grant these dreams and goals. One of those goals was see Paris. (Yep, this was actually drawn 4 years ago.)

4 years after, here we are on a flight to Paris, France to celebrate our 4 year anniversary. Khloe was as excited as we were!

We arrived at the Charles de Gaulle Airport (CDG) at around 2:30pm Paris time and we took the bus to the city. First impression – it was dang cold! Brrrrr…..While on the bus, I clicked a few shots on the way.

The bus stopped at Charles de Gaulle station in Paris which was near the Arc de Triomphe. With our hands full of luggage plus an exhausted toddler, I am glad I still managed to click these few shots of the Arc.

This is our first photo of the Eiffel while we rode on the taxi.

Finally, we reached the Adagio Hotel which was two blocks away from the Eiffel. The room was spacious and had a nice kitchen however, we were disappointed that they did not give us the Eiffel view we requested when we booked the room 2 months ago. But I guess we will settle for this view instead.

Next stop was the grocery store. Monoprix was just a stone’s throw away from the hotel. The city is just romantic with roses growing along the street and flower shops almost around every corner. I am in Loooooove!

Cooked dinner and I must say, we were dead tired so we had to retire early…smiling. The sun is still up but we have a long day tomorrow.
