Postcard from Paris: le Metro
A year ago we were in Paris, on our first trip abroad since the pandemic had started. It felt strange, but good, to be travelling again after almost two years.
Fast forward one year and we are in Paris again. That’s not a coincidence; our wedding anniversary is in early September and why not celebrate it in a city we both love? In the interim we have had three other foreign trips, to Seville, to Costa Rica and to Faro. But now it seems time to pick up the pace and start travelling again more frequently. It also seems a good time to start a new series here, sending you all occasional postcards from my travels.
This particular postcard was shot in the Metro station Montparnasse Bienvenue, after a visit to the Tour Montparnasse. The view from up there was fabulous, so look out for a gallery post once I’m home and can edit the shots properly.
oh metro! great photo
Great picture and such a fun idea of sharing a postcard snap from somewhere 🙂
Glad you like the idea 🙂 I plan to do more in the future!
Let me add our congratulations to you both as you celebrate your anniversary in the City of Love. Curious to see where you will also take longer trips in the weeks and months ahead, Sarah. Bon voyage ❤️
Thank you so much Annie 😊 Sofia later this month and Nepal planned for October/ November!
I know you’ll have a grand time in both places! So sorry to hear of the Queen’s death earlier today. I imagine the days ahead will be very tough for Britons and members of the Commonwealth as we all mourn her passing.
It’s certainly the end of an era and I think the jury is out on how our new king will perform – I suspect he won’t be a patch on his mother tbh. We were already in a state of some turmoil with a new Prime Minister only taking office two days ago – a PM only chosen by a tiny percentage of the population I should add! The next few weeks will be very interesting, but we’ve all learned recently the truth of that Chinese curse about living in interesting times 🙄
I’m sure it’s a lovely time of year to visit – although Paris is amazing at any time. Have a great trip and Happy Anniversary!
Indeed, ‘Paris is always a good idea’, as Audrey Hepburn famously said ❤
A beautiful place to celebrate your anniversary, Sarah!
Absolutely! We love it here and are so lucky to live just a few hours away 😃
I hope you both have a wonderful anniversary in Paris! I can hardly wait for your blogging update with lots of photos! 😊
Thank you Rose 😀 I’m taking loads so I’m sure you’ll see plenty soon!
You can simply never tire of Paris. Love it, always have, always will. Happy anniversary guys!
Thank you, we feel exactly the same about this special city!
20 years since I’ve been…. Damn I wish it was closer to us!
I know, you’re just too far from almost anywhere else!
I always look forward to a postcard from Paris. Have a great holiday!
And I always love being in Paris to send one!
