Paris in October – Monet magic and Paris moments


In late 2010 we visited Paris for the first time in 25 years…we’d waited too long and once again it was a fleeting visit. Once again we’d blown in on a train but this time it was the hyper-modern Eurostar direct from England. Monet was our motivation as there was a fantastic exhibition of his many works from galleries around the world. We’d booked our tickets before we left and scheduled our visit time but even so it was something of a rushed arrival. It really was a superb event, an indulgence of Impressionist gluttony rivalling an equally large exhibition we’d happened upon in Rome in Easter 2000.

The winter skies were grey and dreary but this time Paris truly captured our hearts. We scheme to revisit it either at Christmas or in spring (with a side trip to Monet’s garden perhaps?). To have the time to wander aimlessly enjoying the buildings, drinking coffees, and just relishing being in the moment.

Here is a slideshow of some of the images that captured our senses.
