Ahh, Paris in the rain is just as magical as Paris in the sun. When we arrived, the weather app said it would be rainy the entire week. Initially, I would be extremely bummed if this was anywhere else… but Paris in the rain is fun… and cold… but there’s just something about walking the streets in the rain. Now, if it was pouring rain, that’s not too fun, but a little drizzle and an umbrella (that doesn’t open up from the bottom and ruin the umbrella, you know what I’m talking about?!) now that’s when it’s nice. So I’m sure many of you know the Lock of Love bridge… so, of course I had to go visit it. A few years ago, I had read that they took the locks off the bridge due to it falling, and I didn’t believe it. To come to find out, it was real, the locks were gone, and I was sad about it. I walked around the bridge looking at the plexiglass where the locks had gone and people wrote their names on the glass. On park benches, people had placed their locks on the very bottom where the bench legs were touching the bridge; clever. I didn’t want to do that so I kept walking and said there will be another bridge somewhere that I can place it on. But this was the actual bridge. So, I found a spot, which was a bike lock wrapped around the light post, put the lock which mine and Kyle’s name on it (duh haha) and threw the key in the water. So, we leave the bridge…. and less than a mile away, there was a bridge… with locks… everywhere! It was fascinating! Although, a little bummed that I couldn’t put my lock where all of the other locks are, I was like, well, that lock is on the original! Pep talks right? Haha, anyways, Paris was completely quiet in the rain which was weird to see. Only the super tourist areas were busy, but even then, there wasn’t as many people as you would think.
Many people are messaging me and saying that they want to go, and I recommend Paris 1000%, especially in March. It’s not super crowded and you get to dance in the rain!
Thanks for reading & I still have more to post about Paris, so stay tuned!! Xo
