Down the memory lane, Part 1-Paris Trip

Hi Everyone,

It is said that Paris is the city of romance and fashion capital of the world.  I agree to that.  It’s been seven years when I first visited this city  just a month before my first wedding anniversary as we were supposed to celebrate our first anniversary with family in India.  I was very excited (who won’t be) after all it was my first visit to the French capital which I have been seeing only on television and first time comes only once in life.  We boarded Thalys, the superfast train plying between Brussels and Paris and duration of the journey was about 1 hour 15 minutes.  After reaching there and checking in our hotel room we chalked out plan for our three days.  Prepared a bucket list, which place needs to be visited first and so on.  We decided to take metro for reaching various destinations in the city.  Talking about the metro, the very look of the stations and the metro trains looked very old which meant they were running since ages. But we had a comfortable ride, in fact taking metro is a best option.  With a guide (book) in hand we were all set to paint the city red

Arc de Triomphe, which I sarcastically call India Gate of Delhi as they are similar structures.

Of course The Eiffel Tower!
