Taking a sightseeing cruise down the Seine in Paris was something I’d wanted to do since I first arrived in France, and it only took me about 10 months to finally get around to it! I probably wouldn’t have done so unless I was with these two champions:
You may think there’s nothing better to do on a bank holiday Monday than going to the Sewers of Paris, and you’d be wrong! It was quite an experience to say the least, and I think I may need to wash myself, and my clothes a few more times to feel clean again.
There is no prettier site, I think, than Paris when the sun is setting, and this time I witnessed it from the top of the Arc de Triomphe. The Arc itself is smack-bang in the middle of the Etoile roundabout, and at the end of the world famous Champs-Élysées.
When my friend came to visit me in France, I used it as an excuse to do more of the tourist stuff again, despite being a resident here. This ‘stuff’ included finally taking a trip up to the very top of the Eiffel Tower. It was built for the World’s Fair in 1889 and stands at 324m tall, and I went to (nearly) the top!
I’m sure I’ve previously mentioned how much I love the Jardin du Luxembourg on a sunny day, and here I’m having a bit of a throwback to my visit in autumn, when the trees were burning and the sun was out. When I stopped by I stumbled upon a brass band playing in the bandstand playing a mixture of classical pieces and movie soundtracks.
