A Walk Along the Champs

Champs Élysée, also known as "La Plus Belle Avenue du Monde" (the most beautiful avenue in the world). It has earned its reputation as one of the world's most elegant and famous streets. Its French name translates to "Elysian Fields", the mythical resting place of Greek gods and other blessed figures. Before this famous pathway became famous, it actually were fields filled with the gardens of merchants who sold their goods in Paris' local markets.

Historically speaking, the Champs Élysée had gained reputation for being a fashionable Parisian spot, as large houses and buildings erected along the avenue gave rise to impressive gardens and landscape. Now, the whole stretch of Champs Élysée is crammed with people from all corners of globe at all time of the day or night. I personally have walked from end to end, like strolling on the shores of Boracay from station 1-3. It was a sight to experience. Luxurious stores array both sides of the street, such as the famous-always-lined-up Louis Vuitton store, Cartier Watch store, Hugo Boss store, Disney and Swatch stores, H&M, the perfumery de Guerlain, famous restaurants like Fouquet's, Le Nôtre, Chez Clément, car showrooms are also a-must-see: Toyota, Mercedes Benz, Peugeot.

So, come join me in this photo walk in the street of Champs Élysée.

The Makati District in Paris

It's been awhile since I last blogged. So, where have I been? I went to the city of love, Paris, France, along with my mom and dad. But before I bubble forth the main highlight of my trip, let me first take you to the business, or should I say, "financial district" of Paris.
