Paris ~ the romantic City
In 2007, I was so lucky as my husband took me to Paris for my birthday.
It was a place that I have always wanted to visit and so my dream came true.
I thought I would share a few of our photos on my blog with you.
We had the greatest time and I loved Paris so much.
Here are the usual landmark photos, The Arch de Triomphe, Eiffle Tower and the Louvre Museum.
Paris was a wonderful City and we did a lot of walking around the shops and streets, climbed 600 steps up the Eiffle Tower and did the tour around the City in a double decker bus.
We rented a little apartment, on the second floor and the address was 13 Rue de Poncelet, which was near to the Arch de Triomphe.
It was such a lively street all hours of the day and I am sure that the French people do not sleep.
We had a fruit stall, cheese shop, fish shop and wine shop, all down below us, so the smells in the foyer of the apartment was interesting.
The French food was amazing - the pate, French bread, croissants and the wonderful delis, you could just stare like a small child in a candy store.
I just loved Paris walking along the Champs Elysee and seeing the fashion shops and the very old buildings everywhere you look.
Everytime you opened the old shutters over the window, in our apartment - flakes of the paint would fall off into the streets below.
We were able to make use of our 3rd and 4th form French classes, comes back after all those years.
