Walking in Paris
Hi everyone! Just stopping in to give a brief update on how the travels are going! We're in Paris, as indicated by the picture over there! <<< That was taken yesterday. We explored Notre Dame, then headed for the Louvre. From there after hours of wandering around taking in the wonders, we sat near the little Arc d'Triomphe, Carrousel (as I have taken to calling it...or maybe we can say the "baby"?), and finally walked off down "the strip" toward the Place de la Concorde, in the general direction of the "grown up" Arc d'Triomphe, Etoile.
We walked along the Seine on the way there and on the way back. Sometimes we walked right by the water, where Parisians were out soaking the sun up (they were out and about everywhere). Yes, the weather had started out a bit overcast, but while we were Louvreing the sun emerged. I am not a fan of the sun, as you may have gathered from past rants about Australian summers, and I would have been quite happy for the clouds to stay. But we did get some pretty photos with that blue sky.
Today we're heading to la Tour d'Eiffel to get up close and personal. We'll probably hang around in that general vicinity. We've done a lot of walking and our feet get sore, but it's definitely the best way to take in the finer details of a place.
Anyway...I'm going to post this now. I won't be able to check out many of your blogs while I'm away, but I'll try my best to at least visit a bit! For now, it's time to head out to breakfast, and then get on with my day! I hope you are all having a great day too!
