Paris, France

Metro maps always seem just sooo complicated! But the metro concept itself is actually more than easy...you just need time to get used to it and become familiar with the stations and routes and trains...its even fun, trying to follow the right colour on the right line and all :)

When i look at this map, i DO question myself how i had managed to go through Paris on a subway....I have no idea which stations i had used to get on/off....but it didnt seem problematic at all....from this point of view, seems like the most complicated thing ever :)
Apart from Paris, ive also used the subway system in London, Budapest and Vienna....and as long as you have a map card with you, they are all more than a piece of cake to use...
I sometimes wish we had a subway here as well..but when i think about it, this town is far from big enough for a subway....unless the subway goes to two or three nearest towns...coz that would be exactly like going from one to the other part of London...but when i think of all the chaos on the streets here...a subway would be a great solution...which will never happen...when i was like 5 years old, there was a project about building a tram...im 28...we are still tram-less....so getting a subway is equal to science fiction...

Well...sorry for the lack of updates lately...and for the short entry today...its just...life...but know that i do miss posting here when i dont do it...

This would be handy to have in Paris but, at this stage in my life, I would also need a magnifying lens.

if you do get to Paris, hopefully, you wont depend on a postcard in order to get around there :)

I am colour blind so I have an impossible time with the metro map! I have to go online and map out my route before I go anywhere!
