Paris, France - johnshippeephotography

Travel and photography; two of my favorite things!

In December 2012, my girlfriend and I met in Paris, France, to celebrate New Year's Eve. We both love traveling and New Year's is her favorite holiday.  And where better to spend our first NYE than one of the most romantic cities in the world, Paris?!?!  


While we had a great time in Paris, we decided there are better times of year to go, especially if you will only be in town for a few days.  Some issues we had with the city are:


1. Paris doesn't do NYE like most cities in America.  There were no fireworks at the Eiffel Tower, or anywhere else in the city.

2. We were only there for 4 days and the Louvre was closed 2 of those days.

3. As it is the middle of winter, none of the world famous gardens were in bloom.


While it was an amazing experience and I'm glad we went, it is not on the list of top places to want to visit again any time soon.
