Although I already visited Paris twice, I still want to visit again the so-called "City of Lights". The other day, I received again travel flyers send every now and then by travel agencies where I booked my previous trips in many places and countries in Europe. I saw some quite affordable trips including Paris. I was saddened because there was a bit conflict with my trip to Toskana or Tuscany in September this year. I hope they will send me again new flyers offering more trips to the French capital.

Last winter 2010, a friend from Des Moine, Iowa, USA told me that she is planning to visit Europe in summer 2010. She asked me if I can travel with her to some cities in Europe. I did not hesitated to say no to her because that time, I already saved some money for my 2010 summer travels. I suggested to her the itinerary for our Europe tour and one of the capital cities we visited was Paris. We also visited that time Rome, Luxembourg, Brussels, Amsterdam, Folmova in Czech Republic and some cities in Germany including Cologne, Munich, Passau, Nürnberg and more.

It was raining during my second visit in Paris. The plane where we boarded from Rome landed safely in Charles de Gaulle International Airport in Paris. From the aiport, we took the train going to our hotel which is located just near Gare Du Nord, a train station in Paris.
I did not expected the rainy days during that high-summer season in Europe. It was August anyway!
Now I know that you cannot really trust the weather when visiting any cities in Europe. Always bring with your umbrella and rain coats especially if you check the weather forecast during your visit to a certain city.
Since it was already my second visit in Paris, I already have an idea where to tour my friend. We visited most of the famous sights including Eiffel Tower, Arch of Triumph, Sacre Coeur, Notre Dame Cathedral of Paris, Louvre Museum, Les Invalides and more.
Even though I already visited Paris twice, there are still many things I wish to do and experience there. I know for sure, I will come back to Paris again in the future. Rain or shine, snow or cold, I will surely go back there!
I am glad that I was able to tour my friend in Europe. We shared many fun and laughters during our tour last 2010. It was truly memorable!
