Je t'aime Paris

Inspiration in every corner.

Claude Monet's garden in Giverny

My favorite part of the trip. Located 80 km West from Paris France in the village of Giverny, you can visit Claude Monet House and Gardens where he painted his famous water lily pond, Japanese bridge, Grande Allee, flower garden and etc... The town of Giverny was so pretty that I had no desire to leave.

Château de Versailles

One word, ENORMOUS. No wonder why french revolted against the monarch. Versailles is a representation of beauty built on greed, envy, and pride. Finally brought down by wrath.


Cathédrale Notre Dame de Paris & others

Musée d'Orsay & the Louve

My favorite museum of all time was Musée d'Orsay, which has amazing and vast collection of impressionism paintings that I have only seen in books. The architecture, a former train station, was a piece of art itself.


Paris is such a beautiful city. Lots of europeans with skinny, tight jeans, great food and cafes, beautiful architecture and full of energy. It is the city that never sleeps. We rented an apt in the Latin quarter, near Pantheon for 8 days, such an amazing experience.
