Paris, Paris.… we all dream about this City of Lights. La ville lumière. Maybe you’ve been there, maybe you are working on that dream. Today , I will share a few pics taken while I was there in May. I haven’t been posting anything since mid-May as we were busy traveling in Europe. In my last post, I shared a quote from Audrey Hepburn : “Paris is always a good idea.” And it was , indeed ! Coming back home was nice as our head was full of wonderful memories. I have also tons of pics to edit. It takes time but I am still very happy I brought back pictures to remind me the good time we had over there. Today is only about Paris . Not much text, not enough time to say a lot. Just enjoy the photographs.
There is so much to see in Paris. We only had 3.5 days but we did the most we could with that time. Climbing the Eiffel Tower to the top to admire the views on Champs de Mars and Trocadero, visiting Notre-Dame and Sacré-Coeur, climbing the Arc de Triomphe, walking on the Champs Elysées, strolling in Jardins du Luxembourg and Jardins des Tuileries… Yes, lots of walking but the metro is great also. BTW, no more locks on the Pont des Arts. They were removed shortly after our visit to Paris. Let me know how you enjoyed my photos. Thanks .
Oh yes, Today is July 14 which is the French National Day…
“Bastille Day is the name given in English-speaking countries to the French National Day, which is celebrated on 14 July each year. In France, it is formally called La Fête nationale (The National Celebration) and commonly Le quatorze juillet .The French National Day commemorates the Storming of the Bastille on 14 July 1789,which was the culmination in Paris of a violent revolution that had begun two days earlier, as well as the Fête de la Fédération which celebrated the unity of the French people on 14 July 1790. Celebrations are held throughout France. The oldest and largest regular military parade in Europe is held on the morning of 14 July, on the Champs-Élysées in Paris in front of the President of the Republic, along with other French officials and foreign guests.” (From Wikipedia)
