I had recently come across a posting on Gwyneth Paltrow's blog GOOP about her first trip to Paris. She went on the trip with her father and when they were flying back home he told her,
|At the gardens of Versailles|

I also fell in love with the architecture of Paris. There are so many great places to see and three days was not nearly enough to truly appreciate all the facets of the great city.
Although many people don't like I. M. Pei's pyramid at the Louvre, I absolutely love it. It makes for a fabulously grand entrance into the museum.
Thankfully, the night we went there was a light show and it was truly spectacular.
I had written a report on the Pompidou in 8th grade for French class so I thought I should pay it a visit.
The Metropolitain in Paris has the most fantastical entrances I have ever seen. Art Nouveau is one of my favorite styles of architecture and these stations do not disappoint! They put NYC's subway to shame.
The trip I took with my mom is something I will always cherish.
