Tuileries Garden

This beautiful Ferris Wheel seemed close to the Museum de Louvre’s premises. Without giving a second thought started walking towards it. Gradually discovered was standing near to the Jardines de Tuileries (Tuileries Garden)!

There was a carnival going on. And their it was, the beautiful Ferris Wheel 🎡. Right away bought a ticket and got onto the Ferris wheel. Gradually when it went to the top and got to witness the most mesmerizing view of Paris and was literally swallowed by the beauty of the city of love.

Took €10 but presented a view of a lifetime! A city never been before but was fearless while roaming around all by myself.

Though pickpocketing might create an issue but being a little conscious about belongings would benefit a lot.

Never let the world fool you with all its fake glittery stuffs; be yourself let the world accept what you believe in and your values.

Let kindness nourish you and all the good around you may influence you to spread peace and happiness.

Cruise by the river Seine, Paris, France

It was a magical night in Paris,
Cruised around by the river Seine,
Witnessed some of the most famous historical sites,
The wind was calmly spreading it’s soothing breeze,
A French instrumental song was playing in the background,
Gradually a view snatched all the attention.

Enjoy!

The Eiffel Tower

Tips:

While visiting France’s capital Paris don’t forget to take a cruise at night by the river Seine. One cruise ride will showcase almost all the heritages of Paris but before purchasing tickets know the routes the cruise will take.

It’s affordable ($12) and will indeed gift you an experience of a lifetime.

Berlin Architecture

Stopped to take a snap, my good days in Berlin.

Tbt other places were on my schedule that day but research can wait for academic purposes 🐸.

So here I was, roamed around, gathered experiences, tried to understand a different culture and did my own research first, for myself.

Thank you Berlin. You got good & strict laws to protect the people. Safe city to roam alone.♥️

KaDeWe

In the restaurant they’ve got thousands of delicious dishes from many countries of the world. Even the famous black tiger shrimp from Bangladesh was there too!

Aqua kultur aus Bangladesh.

Meaning: Aqua culture from Bangladesh 🇧🇩.

On the other side there was a lounge were people were enjoying their food and watching soccer. From the big glass windows it was amazing to look the view of Wittenbergplatz.

It was quite an amazing experience.

If you got money then it is the best place where one can get all the exclusive things. Shopaholics might spend all their money as this store is so much resourceful.

FYI: So what did I get? Roaming around was fun but did end up getting a fancy eclair & a bottle of water from the food hall(LoL). The eclair looked like a royal one but didn’t taste as good as the regular ones I usually get from regular bakeries. But it is true that the Mall was pretty Lit 🔥.
