Standing at the center of Paris

Paris Point Zero is a marker located in the square right in front of the main entrance to Notre Dame. This small octagonal brass plate is set in the ground and it marks the exact spot from which all distances...

PhotoHunt - three

The Chanel store window at Avenue Montaigne last December. Three gargoyles (and a chimera) in a store in Montmartre. An advertisement in the subway in Paris for an English language school. Happy first day of spring! :)...

March 19: St. Joseph’s Day

I've been waiting for this day to post a picture of the one and only shrine I saw on my recent trip to Paris. I found St. Joseph and Baby Jesus perched up high on a building in Montmartre, not...

Eiffel Tower

I have more than 50 pictures of the Eiffel Tower taken at different times of the day. A good number are a bit blurry due to the tower lighting constantly changing. Out of all the photos, this one is...

PhotoHunt - spiral

I’ve been playing around with a graphic design software in an effort to try something different on my blog. I want my entries to look like pages out of an album, with captions written in my own handwriting. To...

PhotoHunt - foreign

After a three months absence, I'm getting back on participating in PhotoHunt. I had a hard time finding a photo to represent this week's theme but while looking at my Paris photos I found these of McDonald's and Starbucks....

It is time to start blogging again!

I apologize to my blog friends who came here during the month of February to find that I had abandoned my blog. A number of circumstances conspired to keep me away from posting and from reading my favorite blogs, but...

Le Métro

The apartment we rented in the 16th arr. was located in a nice residential area, about 15 minutes from most main sights by Métro. We enjoyed being in a quiet and charming neighborhood removed from the hustle and bustle of...

Off focus

I'll soon resume blogging about Paris but first I have to shake off this nasty head cold. Hoping to feel better by next week 'cause my French class starts on Wednesday and I'm eager to impress my teacher with some...

The Epiphany

I meant to post this entry on January 6, on the day we celebrate the Epiphany but it was our last day in Paris and we left the apartment in a hurry to try to make the most of our...

Leaving Paris

We got home Thursday evening after spending 21 hours in airports and planes. We arrived in Phoenix to temperatures in the high 50's after leaving a snow covered Paris. I have a cold-stricken husband who has spent the last two...

Pont Alexandre

It's been very cold, with temperatures in the 20’s-30's and we've been trying to find creative ways to enjoy the city while trying to keep warm. We have used the subway extensively to transport us from our apartment to the...

Montmartre

Today we traveled about 45 minutes on the subway to reach the hip and cool hill of Montmartre. The butte of Montmartre is the highest point in Paris and the views from the Basilica of Sacre Coeur are simply spectacular....

Mass at Notre Dame

A few photos of the exterior of the magnificent cathedral of Notre Dame. We arrived just before the last mass of the day was about to start. Today, January 1st, the Roman Catholic Church celebrates the liturgical feast of the...

Bonne année 2010

Wishing all my blog friends, Slowtrav members and my family a year of joy, good health and much happiness!...

A slow day in Paris

Yesterday we visited the Louvre - along with a few thousand other tourists - and attempted to view some of the most important art collections in the world. The museum was very crowded and a lot of patience was required...

From Paris with love

As some of you may know last August I enrolled in French 101 at my local community college. I had a terrific teacher and great classmates who made learning French interesting and fun. Last October I told my husband, only...
