Notre Dame de Paris

An Afternoon in Paris – Photo Essay 1

It should have been a day in Paris, but we had made a terrible mistake when we left our apartment to go to the train station: we hadn’t taken Lars’ passport with us. So, he had to come back home, fetch the document and hurry back to the station. Luckily, we could take a train to Paris an hour later.

Since we arrived around lunchtime and we were both hungry, Lars and I decided to go to a restaurant and have a bite. In Brussels, we seldom go out to eat, because we fully want to enjoy local food and drinks during our travels.

In case you are wondering what we had for lunch, it was smoked buck breast salad with foie gras on toast on top. Foie gras? But isn’t it barbaric how they treat those beautiful birds? Yes, we know, and although we both love animals, I guess Lars and I love food a little bit more.

Anyway, around 1 pm, we left the restaurant.

Now, Lars and I usually don’t visit touristic places. But we make an exception when it concerns a really beautiful, stunning or exceptional landmark, building or monument. And I think that the Notre Dame de Paris is such an exception, especially since Lars had never visited it.

By the way, we had actually planned a completely different excursion. But the evening before we left I found out that that particular venue was closed on Mondays. Of course, this is just an excuse for another trip to Paris, hopefully later this year!

I was immediately attracted by the vivid colours of the stained glass around me. So, I kept on looking up and photographing.
