Paris In The Rain: A Photo Story

Paris is a mystery. Most people I know of, either have a love/hate relationship with Paris. Some people just adore Paris whereas others just tend to hate it at first sight and label it as a dirty city full of pickpockets.
I am not a fan of stereotyping. I believe that every city has an inner soul to it, a soul that feels different to each person. Even if you try peeling those invisible layers, you may never be able to relate to the true essence of some cities.
It was not my first visit to Paris. But like Audrey Hepburn once said, “Paris is always a great idea.” And so it was decided. I would spend a few days in this romantic city.

Paris In The Rain: A Photo Story

I knew it would be raining. But I still wanted to see this city as a solo traveler. I got there to realise that the weather had decided to be rebellious. But that did not deter me. I ended up walking all around Paris in the rain. I ended up eating a lot of delicious food too. Unfortunately due to the rain, I had to leave my camera in the hotel on most days.
But still Paris made me fall in love with her. I just realised how unique she was and how she has that ability to make anyone feel at home. Walking is definitely one of the best ways to see a gorgeous city like Paris.
Even though I don’t have that many good photographs from Paris, I still would love to take you around Paris in the rain through a photo story. Hope you enjoy a different side of Paris like I did.

Today we celebrate Saraswathi Pooja or Vidyarambham. Saraswati is goddess of knowledge. So during the last three days of the Navaratri festival in South India, we place our books for puja or worship. When we were kids we were not allowed to read during these 3 days. We used to be so happy then that we didn’t have to study for 3 whole days. Since I am back to Uni this year, my mom insisted that I keep my books as well. I kept for 1 hour since that is the maximum anyone can pry me away from my phone. After all I work, study and run a part time business from my phone. Vidyarambham is the ritual of initiation of reading and writing for young kids. We did it for my 2 year old nephew this year since he already knows his Abcs and 123s. That is why I thought this was the perfect picture for today. The world’s largest museum, the Louvre is a treasure trove of knowledge and what better picture to pay homage to the wealth of knowledge. May all of you get lost in the art of traveling and knowledge as vast as the louvre. #Europe #monuments . #Paris #indian_igers #wearetravelgirls #girlsvsglobe
