Notre Dame--love those flying buttresses
breathtaking stained glass at Sainte Chapelle
the Venus de Milo up close and personal at the Louvre
and the Mona Lisa not quite so close
(My husband had me turn my head to the right and my eyes to the left,
just like hers. What do you think?)
The Orangerie, a beautiful little gem of a museum,
where I just stood speechless at the sight of Monet's work.
a little bit of the gardens at Versailles
and a bit more
a shot of the Arc de triomphe at night
and one taken from the Arc de triomphe at night
A kind fellow tourist snapped this of the two of us.
Dear friends from church stayed at our house with our boys while we spent a week in Paris. I'm still pinching myself, wondering if it was just a dream after all.
Now please tell me: do you like to travel? Do you ever go on special trips for special occasions? What's your favorite place to visit?
