We are back from Paris and all I can say is that it was tiring but awesome! Paris is stylish, stunning, rich in culture, both laid back and buzzing, cosmopolitan, beautiful. Here’s our stay in pictures.
Leaving for Heathrow in the rain (typical).
Tom’s plane photo, which I promised I’d include (being on the Airbus A380 was a major highlight for him).
L’Hôtel national des Invalides (The National Residence of the Invalids)… political correctness is clearly lacking in this instance.
Tom and I by the impressive-once-standing-underneath Eiffel Tower
This one’s for our friend, Christopher, who tried but failed to take one of those perspective pictures when he visited Paris (y’know where the Tower’s supposed to be within your hands).
We took a river boat along the Seine which is a great way to see the cultural highlights of Paris.
The Notre Dame. Next time we’re going in.
This was a string group playing classical music in the metro for passers-by. Somewhat fitting in Paris.
Tom wanted me to include this photo of me looking tired on the flight since I included the photo of us two above despite his protests.
And that was Paris in a nutshell! I survived without getting glutened thanks to dietary cards,
and the wide availability of fresh produce.
Sorry there are no exciting food photos. Food wasn’t really one of the highlights; it was more of a eat-for-survival-rather-than-pleasure things.
This may be my last post for the next two weeks as Tom and I are on our travels again! On Friday we are flying to New York (screams with excitement) where we will be staying for a couple of nights before driving to Williamsburg, Viriginia and via Washington DC. I can’t wait! And Whole Foods watch out! I am going to have a field day. I will finally get to try some of the delicious looking food that you wonderful US people blog about. Any recommendations for our stay?
Hope you’re all well and had a good start to your weeks 🙂
