notre dame des champs

anonymous asked:

How many "Notre Dames" are there in Paris? of course there is the Notre Dame de Paris, as well as Notre Dame des Champs, Notre Dame (the Polish one that I used as a landmark), Notre Dame de Lorrette and I think that's all the ones I know of. They are all beautiful :) I grew up in Protestant churches so I was used to very simple architecture.

Now I made this list, I want to visit them all XD Well done, anon haha! 



As you can imagine my first visit to Paris was jam-packed with things to do and see. The Louvre, Opera Garnier House (Palais Garnier), Arc de Triomphe, Eiffel Tower, Sacré-Cœur, Notre-Dame, Moulin Rouge, Versailles…I simply couldn’t stand not to see it all. Standing in front of the Mona Lisa was quite the experience. Needless to say, she won the staring contest. One visit to the Eiffel Tower wasn’t enough, this beauty had to be experienced in the daytime and the nighttime, and it had to be climbed all the way to the top. Palace of Versailles was incredible; more than words can describe. To think people actually lived there, and not just anyone, Marie Antoinette herself. This place is mind-blowing.

I couldn’t get enough of the crepes, cider, and croissants. I had them for breakfast almost every day, and being the macaron fan that I am, a visit to Ladurée was in order.

The five-story Montreal City Hall (French: Hôtel de Ville de Montréal) is the work of architects Henri-Maurice Perrault and Alexander Cowper Hutchison, and was built between 1872 and 1878 in the Second Empire style. It is located in Old Montreal, between Place Jacques-Cartier and the Champ de Mars, at 275 Notre-Dame Street East. [via]


I had an awesome week with my classmates and teachers in Paris!

- We walked around all day every day and every night I was incredibly happy to finally take off my shoes.

- Some of the many things we saw: Tour Eiffel, Musée du Louvre, Notre Dame, Sacré-Coeur, Palais Royal, Jardin des Tuilleries, Arc de Triomphe, Champs-Elysées, Galéries Lafayettes, ….

- We went on the Eiffel Tower at night but I only went up to the second platform. On the last day, my friends and I picknicked in front of the Eiffel Tower. The sky was cloudless and it was beautiful.

- Every morning my friend and I had our breakfast in our hotel room which was oats + fresh fruit + nuts + a smoothie. Much better than the baguette + jam the hotel offered.

- One night at a restaurant I asked for a vegetarian dish. I got a plate with fries, noodles and rice.

- I hadn’t planned to do a lot of shopping but I found SO many things and spent way too much money.

- Apparently there was a terror warning for the whole underground system on our last day there. Since there was a bomb disposal under the Eiffel Tower and there were soldiers walking around with machine-guns my friends and I seriously shit our pants on our way back to the hotel (16 stations).
