From Quai Branly

The closer you get to the Tower, the more grand you feel about it, and the smaller you feel about yourself, in a good way though.

From Wall for Peace Monument

My trip was planned, yet unplanned. It was planned in the sense that I planned where to stay, my budget, my monthly Métro pass, a few walking routes and itineraries. Unplanned, because even though I planned all my visits to major attractions, my plans unraveled when Paris kept surprising me with its beauty at every corner.

Whether you stroll towards the École Militaire via the Champ de Mars, or you enter Champ de Mars via Place Joffre, the Wall for Peace monument with the Eiffel Tower in the background will amaze you in any light and from any angle. You will see the word “peace” written in 49 different languages on the glass façades and the pillars of the monument.

There are different kinds of artists. Some are more focused and others are more all-encompassing. I would count myself as the art-everywhere type of artist. To me, art is a way of looking at things, of applying creativity in my life.

I am a frequent traveler who truly appreciates every tiny beauty of life and have traveled extensively around the world. Different cities inspire me in different ways.

My passion is Paris which I have visited more than once, living as a Parisian. I have walked big streets and small alleys in Paris, and every inch of the city has given me inspiration.

When I first arrived in Paris it was as though all my senses were heightened, then as I became familiar with the city I learned to see subtleties that I missed at first.

  1. ”The closer you get to the Tower, the more grand you feel about it, and the smaller you feel about yourself, in a good way though.”
    So true! I had the exact same thought while discovering Paris and inevitable Tower in million different points of view.

    Paris has that magical power to make you appreciate everything so much, even when you’re not in that kind of mood at the moment 🙂 You just can not be grumpy in Paris. This city is pure love.

    1. ahahaha ^^. Yes you can be grumpy in here :-).
      Especially if you work there. Sometimes the pressure is too strong. Paris is like New york, you have to stand the distance. But oh boy, how she knows how to reward you. This town is always surprising me by its versatility.
      I miss my town!

      1. Yes, there’s pressure in big cities. For a tourist, it could be the crowd 🙂 but you feel alive in Paris until you’re too old. 🙂

  2. I imagine that the felling of standing next to the Eiffel Tower must be similar to the one experienced by an ant when is next to a human. The Eiffel Tower is so big and outstanding that every single being standing on the bottom of it must probably be reduced to single molecule.

  3. This brings so many fond memories. Standing so close beside or underneath the steel grandiosity is quite an experience. I remember I was in pure awe just by being in the spacious presence of the Eiffel Tower itself. Whether experiencing it during the day under the grayish sky or during the night under the starry sky the feeling remains the same. The Wall for Peace caught my eye, though because it is the perfect timing for peace to rise as tall and confident as the Eiffel Tower.
    Thank you for this beautiful post.
