Saturday Night Fever in Paris

Strolling down by the Jardin de Plantes on Saturday night I stumbled upon the most happening spot in Paris - this little paved area on the banks of the Seine, where possibly the most atmospheric ballroom dance class ever was taking place.

Tinkly music was drifting on the breeze and the couples were waltzing and twirling like pros, while boats cruised by and the sun set over the Notre Dame in the distance.

Sometimes Paris is so amazing I almost can't stand it.

  1. Great blog, Alice. Your post brought a lot of memories back from my trip to Paris a year ago with my father. We stayed right by where you took your pictures.

    BTW, I found you on Twitter and loved your blog, so I'm "following" now. I hope you don't mind. My blog is http://bloggingtravel.blogspot.com/ if you want to check it out as well. Feel free to follow if you like, but don't feel obligated. I'm just always looking for good travel writing and photos.

    Thanks again for the memories!

  5. "Sometimes Paris is so amazing I almost can't stand it." - I feel that way every time I'm there. I rarely sleep while visiting Paris because I'm too busy roaming the streets. Thank you for sharing your thoughts and images.
