Paris 4-24-2012

This was our last day in Paris. I wanted to spend the day just wandering around, enjoying a last view of the sights. One thing I had not done was eaten as many pastries that were listed on the blog...

Paris 4-23-2012

Michelangelo's Dying Slave Today was our second to last day in Paris. We decided to go to the Louvre in the morning. We came across an entrance to the Louvre where our Museum Pass got us right in the...

Paris 4-22-2012

Today was a busy day. We took the train to Versailles. We got a later start than we planned, and it was sure crowded when we got there. We had our museum passes, which allow us not to have to...

Paris 4-21-2-12

I'm back home now and trying to catch up on my blog. When you're on vacation for almost 3 weeks, seeing lots of new sights, you tend to forget a lot of what you did and saw. That's why it's...

Paris 4-20-2012

Today we started our day by going to Sainte-Chapelle. If you're not familiar with Sainte-Chapelle, it's a beautiful cathedral with amazing stained glass windows. It was built in 1248 for King Louis IX. There are 15 panels of stained glass,...

Paris 4-19-2012

Today, we really wanted to sleep in a little, but unfortunately, that didn't happen. Although our bed is comfortable in our apartment and it's quiet enough at night, neither one of us is sleeping well. Besides waking up a lot...

Paris 4-16-2012

Today we went to the Montmartre area of Paris. We chose to burn a few more calories and walk up the hill to Sacre-Coeur Basilica rather than take the funicular. At the base, here is the view of Sacre-Coeur. When...

Paris 4-15-2012

As you may have noticed, I didn't blog yesterday. I was feeling a little under the weather. I think I might have just been overly tired, but I napped some during the day. Finally I thought we better get out...

Paris 4-13-2012

This is how I started my day today. A wonderful Chausson Pommes from my favorite neighborhood bakery, Du Pain et des Idees. Today was a busy day. We left the apartment in the morning and didn't return until after 11pm....

Paris 4-12-2012

Today was another beautiful day in Paris. The forecast was calling for rain after 4pm, but luckily, we never saw that happen. We decided to visit the Eiffel Tower. On our last visit, we went up to the 2nd level....

Paris 4-11-12

Today was a beautiful day! There was supposed to be a 90% chance of rain, and shortly after we got up the skies turned blue. It was very chilly though. I'm very glad I brought all of the sweaters I...

Paris 4-10-12

Scott and I arrived in Paris yesterday morning. We were both very jet-lagged. Scott slept just a little on the plane, and I didn't sleep any. We met the owner of the apartment where we're staying, then walked around for...

10-15-10 Paris - Rue Montorgueil and the Louvre

I'm finishing my blogging about our trip by writing today about our last day in Paris. I have followed the blog of David Lebovitz for quite some time, and enjoy his humor and knowledge. He did a writeup on...

10-14-10 Paris - Marche de la Bastille Market, Pastry/Chocolate Tour, and Notre Dame

I'm back home in Alaska now, and trying to finish posting about our last days in Paris. I've learned that if you get behind, it's hard to remember the specifics, so hopefully I can remember enough to make this post...

10-13-10 Paris - Arc de Triomphe and Eiffel Tower

On the 13th, we had one reservation. That was for the Eiffel Tower. Our reservations were scheduled for 6pm. We started out the day going to the Arc de Triomphe. It was much largert than I anticipated. We were planning...

10-12-10 Paris

10-12-10 was our first full day in Paris. We slept in a little, and then slowly got around and ready to go out for the day. We didn't take the Metro the first day-I don't remember why. We walked...

10-11-10 Paris

On 11/11/10, we left Italy and flew to Paris. We had no problems at the airport. We have business class seats, and went through the security line for business/first class. There was not one person in line. I kept thinking...
