Paris is magnetic, plastered across the vision boards of dreamy-eyed, budding travellers around the world. Start with a visit to the Notre Dame Cathedral for an understanding of Paris’s multilayered history. When you visit the city’s major attraction, the Eiffel tower, try reserving tickets ahead of time, to skip the long queues. Although there are many, many such things and attractions you must visit in Paris, don’t miss out on a leisurely walk under the shaded trails by the Seine, or unwind at the lush promenades of Jardin des Tuileries. Attend a poetry reading in an old bookshop and enjoy the illustrious cabaret of The Crazy Horse. This glittering city of light is all about understated, yet glamorised experiences - wandering the Parisian streets, walking the avenues and bridges, listening to the hum flowing out of bistros and bars; musicians in the metro and that particular scent of old, used books at the Shakespeare and Co. Paris is also a shopaholic’s Mecca, with a number of high-end shops and hidden flea markets. For those led by their stomachs, don’t leave Paris without getting your hands on their baguettes and macarons. And of course, many many glasses of wine.
Geneva is globally known for being the headquarters of the mighty United Nations. But, the city's vintage charm, eloquent looks and bubbling energy will not only help you relax but live life at large.
The next morning, I took a train to Bern. Here, I paid a visit to a famous local landmark, Einstein's House. Charmed by the many exquisite cobbled streets and decorated facades along the path, I enjoyed a scenic view of Lake Thun along the drive between Wilderswil and Därligen, where I decided to pick up some lunch.
We drove to Avignon to find our wedding caterer whose address was “towards Avignon, turn right at small town, after cemetery take third road on the left which a grey sign with no name on it…that’s where you’ll find me.” That’s how things roll around here. Near Avignon is where you’ll find those famous fields of lavender, they even do bus tours apparently, but the town itself is also an amazing maze of little roads, giant walls, bridges, ruins, churches, markets, restaurants and general amazing French-ness. Down the road is Orange, famous for having some of the most impressive Roman architecture still standing in Europe.
An amazing place to be! Do visit if you can! A fine Portuguese and Gujarati influenced town which is very quite for a tourist town. The architecture is highly influenced by the Portuguese tastes and liking. All the highly respected and influential buildings are now converted into Government head quarters or museums or hotels.
