48 Hours in Paris, France with the Sony A7ii | Travel Blog
Continuing the last blog post, which was a blitz through part of Europe’s Schengen Area, landing in Oslo and taking the train down to Copenhagen. After jumping on a flight from Copenhagen, I was off to Paris for a few days! Luckily, the gloomy weather in Northeastern Europe gave way to sunny skies in France, which made a pleasant couple of days in Paris, though for the photos I would have preferred a few clouds for those dramatic skies. I stayed in a hostel in Paris, which is always fun, since I was solo traveling with just my backpack I didn’t need all of the comforts of a proper hotel without Betty or Miles with me. Two days totally free in Paris before I had to take the train over to London meant A LOT of walking seeing as much as I could, and taking a few photographs along the way. Here are some of my favorite photos from 48 hours in Paris :). All photos taken with the Sony A7ii of course!
That was day 1, Paris is not too shabby even in March! Of course, I wish their were more Spring blooms and greenery around the park areas and the Tour Eiffel, but you can’t have it all I guess! After a loooong day of walking around, I headed back to the hostel and crashed hard. But it was back at it again exploring Paris on day 2!
Day 2 was more of the same I guess? If you couldn’t tell, I love the architecture in Paris and the streets. I thought the streets of Manhattan in New York were pretty cool… until you see the old streets of Paris. Seeing the catacombs, Seine, Lourve, Tour Eiffel… all cool, but just wandering those old streets was my favorite part. This was a great quick trip to spend 2 full days wandering around Paris for the first time with my little Sony A7ii. The next morning I checked out of my hostel and it was on to London via train to meet up with Betty and Miles for a couple days in London together. Highly recommend Paris to anyone and I really want to go back as soon as possible, hopefully for a wedding or prewedding photo shoot during slightly warmer weather! 🙂
