A year ago this month my daughter and I spent two weeks in Paris
The weather was perfect and we had the opportunity to leisurely explore the city
Please join me in a walking tour of one of the most beautiful cities on earth
Paris is the city of flowers
Have you ever seen a double decker carousel?

Weren’t we lucky to enjoy a homecooked meal in Paris?
Major sites are well marked and getting around was easy
We couldn’t visit Paris without a stop at The Louvre

A walk around Paris wouldn’t be complete without a stroll past
the Eiffel Tower on a beautiful day.
I hope you enjoyed our walking tour around Paris.
It was the trip of a lifetime for my daughter and me, one that I enjoy over and over
as I browse through my albums and journals. Thanks for sharing it with me.
