It is a small tidal island and part of the UNESCO World Heritage Sites. The island is just off the coast of Lower-Normandy.
Though it's definitely very picturesque and nice, I was a bit disappointed. I studied about this place in art history so I expected the place to be very historic and mighty, when in reality the streets were filled with souvenir shops, restaurants, hotels, etc. I admit, it looked absolutely amazing from the distance and the view was great from the top, but the some of the inside was a let-down, at least for me.
All in all, I'm still more than happy that I went there - it's still Mont Saint Michel, one of the most beautiful sights in Normandy.
I lived in Rouen, Normandy, which was conveniently situated 1,5 hour train ride away from Paris. One Saturday in the end of September, my roommate and I decided to spend a day there. Though I've been to Paris before, it was about 10 years ago, so the memories weren't that crisp.
Thankfully it was a beautiful, sunny day. We wanted to see all the main attractions of Paris so we'd get an overview of the city for the next time when we come back.
So this is my first trip to Paris while living in France.
La Tour Eiffel
What's more Paris than Eiffel Tower?!
Musée du Louvre
Since we were there only a day, we didn't go inside the museum this time.
Jardin des Tuileries
Tuileries Garden near the Louvre Museum
Place de la Concorde
Arc de truiomphe de l'Étoile
Just like Louvre, we didn't go inside the Arc de Triomphe this time
Cathédrale Notre Dame de Paris
Soirée à Paris
I truly love Paris. It is one of the most magical and beautiful cities I've been to. Going through all the pictures, I remember how much fun I had that day and how much I miss it.
