Paris 2015

Posted: May 3, 2015 in Euro 2015

Today is Sunday, 3 May and we’re getting ready to leave Belgium. But I’ve got a little time to try and catch up. Six days ago, we spent a full day in Paris.  So going back 6 days…

Monday, 27 April: We have easy access to the RER C from our hotel in Gennevilliers which takes us directly to the Tour Eiffel. A lot of walking follows – but walking through Paris is a lot of fun. The architecture, shops and people are fascinating.

Our first destination this Morning is the Louvre museum. And it is huge. I mean overwhelming. But we picked the highlights we wanted to see and power walked it.

   
        

I loved this work.

      

And then we had lunch in the nearby gardens. Croc monseurs all around.

   

Then off to Notre Dame, the Latin quarter and Luxembourg gardens.

   
    
Luxembourg Gardens  

   

In the Luxembourg Gardens, (mostly) boys played with sailboats that they steered with sticks. I think they could set the sails and then give the boats a push. The boats tacked and sailed down-wind. The boats were not motorized or remotely controlled. Very cool.     
Up next – two days in Normandy.

    Beautiful photos! I am wondering if the traffic is still crazy in Paris 😁.
