You wouldn't happen to have any pictures of Gare du Nord from the volcano disaster of spring 2010? If you do, that'd so make my day.
I'd submit some, but for whatever reason I have no photos from my time there. :-(
Hi, I’m really sorry, unfortunately I don’t, I had never been to Paris at that time! I think I have some pretty nice photos of Gare du Nord itself but? It’s such a beautiful station (:
ooh j'étais très contente quand j'ai vu que t'as mis une photo du métro Parmentier, c'était mon station métro quand j'habitais à Paris l'année dernière, merci pour ton blog, c'est une idée géniale et il m'apporte beaucoup des souvenirs!! gros bisous!!!
(Note before: I don’t speak French at all beyond the basics and had help - I think you will get the gist of it but don’t laugh if it’s horribly wrong!)
Je m’excuse ainsi de prendre si longtemps pour répondre, je ne parle pas de français et il m’a pris une longue période pour calculer haha! Mais merci bien pour votre joli commentaire, je suis heureux que vous appréciiez que j’essaie de faire ici. Aussi, Parmentier est joli, je suis si jaloux vous avez vécu là!
This is crazy! Are you seriously interested in subway/metro/train systems and such. Because I lived in Japan for a couple years and fell in love with the convenience of subways and such. So now I'm planning on majoring in Urban and Region Design. In the column you wrote talking about why you post these pictures, and it sounds like you would enjoy Urban Planning and Design as well, unless you enjoy more of the archecture aspect of subways. How do you want to expand upon this interest?
I am - to be honest - completely obsessed with the Parisian metro. Other ones interest me, like the London underground and the Glasgow subway where I’m from, and I do love trains (which might make me a bit “sad”) but for me it is two things: The beauty of the stations themselves inside and out and the intricacy of the network. I don’t think people stop to realise how much planning and consideration went into constructing something they see as an everyday convenience. I can’t explain why I love it, I just went to Paris and was mezmerised. I am expanding on it by going to Paris a few times in the next year to go further in depth and explore parts of it I didn’t at the time. I’m not really sure if I’ve answered your question, but I liked trying! (:
Thank you, this is great! Somehow, trains will never disappoint me. Although I wouldn't say the same thing after spending some time in one of those pressurized high speed torture machines. grts
Aw no worries, I will admit I looked for the nicest one I could find, there are some absolute trainwrecks (pardon the pun) going about. Even if you couldn’t get on one again they’ll always be pretty to look at, and the boyish adrenaline junkie part of me thinks that sounds fun to be honest! (:
I love your blog! I love trains and adore seeing pictures of them around the world. I even asked bonparisien to take pictures of the Paris metro for me. He's been reblogging you recently and I thought I'd check you out--and I think this may be one of my favorite spaces in tumblr. And I should go now that I've sufficiently embarrassed myself in your ask box--keep posting <3.
Oh my goodness, thank you so so much <3333 There is something about trains that are just so beautiful to look at, it seems only a minority appreciates them, I’m glad you’re one of them. I’d post one of the trains where I’m from but I’m sure you’d be disappointed :P I am actually so happy you think this is one of your favourites, this has made my day! Samantha (:
p.s. you haven’t embarrassed yourself, appreciation makes me happy <3
I suppose it should be something meaningful, so here goes..
I want to thank ALL of you, every single one of you, from e-m-m-y who just started following me - to bonparisien who is probably responsible for half my followers - to everyone who has submitted/replied/liked/reblogged any of my content. This started off as just me having a place to put all my memories and my love for the metro out there, I started off with two followers (my private blog and my boyfriend) and it’s grown into a wee metro appreciating family. I love that you can all appreciate this with me, and you take a bit of your time to pay attention to my slightly weird obsession.
I genuinely appreciate every single one of you, thank you for making Project: Paris Metro mean something to more than just me.
