Paris - Heart Of The World

Catch The PLANE & get INSANE

A trip to Paris - Heart Of The World was a Christmas gift from Aunt in 2013 ❤️

Let me introduce you to today's journey with my poem.


"On the way to Paris"


Three meters under the sky - on the way to Paris.

Entering heaven, the cloud bows down.

Within arm's reach, a downy layer;

In the world of dreams, reality hides.

- Catalina Stefańska

A bit further, 25 miles from Paris, lies the Palace of Versailles, a must-see marvel expanded during the reign of Louis XIV.


Sayings like "à la Versailles" or "elegance à la française" originated here.


The best transport from Paris is the train — affordable and fast.

How to travel in Paris


I used the HOP-ON HOP-OFF bus throughout the day,

and I think it's the best way to get around Paris.

A 24-hour ticket costs around 20€.


⇩ ⇩ ⇩


You can also rent a bike, but you might not see much in just one day.

Daily bike rentals are around 15-20€.

People in Paris


During this one day, I noticed that Parisians carry themselves with a sense of superiority,

and quite a bit of it. They can be impolite, and if we don't speak their language they'll say

"Speak French", lift their heads, and that's it – an offense.


The nicest Parisians I met were in one of the less affluent neighborhoods.

Employees of small shops, as well as passersby, were very kind and willing to help.

Morning coffee and dinner taste different here 💕☕


A cup of favorite coffee alone, a book, and relax...

I was surprised by how soothing it can be; sitting in a café on a busy street and observing the pace that's hard to keep up with.


This city truly ignites inspiration!


I highly recommend everyone to stop at a café with a garden or choose a table by the window and surrender to a moment with coffee or another drink.
