When I think back to Paris in the winter, even with the dark grey skies, the rain, and the cold…it is still utterly magical and magnificent. A true architectural beauty is the Sacré Coeur, situated at the top of the hill in Montmartre. Overall, I would summarise the area of Montmartre as dodgy. Other then the mass of tourists that congregate to the basilica, it seems like all others lingering around are there to pickpocket the naive or alternatively, convince/wrought them into buying something they don’t want. I just want to warn you to be careful, make sure your bag is closed, your valuables carefully locked away, and your wits about you.
On a happier note…
We visited the Sacré Coeur on our second last day before flying back to Sydney. I had first been here in the summer time of 2010. Paris was the first stop on our trip, with this being the first of many tourist attractions we climbed too. I remember how lovely it looked at its grand height, with beautiful sweeping views over the Parisian rooftops. I made sure that I took my family to check it out too. I hope you like the photos :).
This is my very last Europe post from my trip last year. It’s amazing that it has nearly taken me a whole year to blog it all. It has ended with good timing though, as I am heading off to Italy and London in December for Christmas and New Year. A three week quick trip to fulfil the void of Europe that I’ve had this past year. I truly do love it there. With the trip, will come many more food and travel photos that I can’t wait to share throughout 2015.
