Four Days in Paris



Such an incredible place … seriously amazing and I’m very aware I’m living a dream.

There’s the tower of course …. it’s been a long while since I began dreaming of this moment when I’d see the tower for real.

I’m figuring many other people must have the same dream because it’s kinda hard to get photos of these things without other random strangers standing in the way.

And while it was amazingly cool by day … it was absolutely incredible by night.



Yes … Paris is everything I thought it would be and more.

One of the things I wasn’t expecting was the bits of glowing gold everywhere. I’m not sure if it was the drizzly weather when we arrived but it was definitely a surreal dreamy kinda feeling to catch sight of the glowing gold bits.




We have walked lots and seen lots … most of it famous places I don’t remember the names of. There was Napoleons place … that was pretty neat, and the big arc thingy at the end of the famous flash shopping street on the roundabout with the crazy french traffic.


And then there was Marie Antoinette house … AMAZING!

Again the gold … it’s all about the gold!


We’ve mastered the metro … by day and by night.

Wandered through Paris streets … and seen inside this famous big church place …

We’ve seen Monet’s waterlily paintings … absolutely very cool … and inspiring. But I wasn’t allowed to take photos.  And then the big huge famous place where we found Mona Lisa.


Oh and I’ve been French Flea Market shopping … another amazing living the dream kind of moment … I now have real vintage french lace … bought from a lovely french lady who spoke to me so nicely even though I had no idea what she was saying!


And I’ve even been to a french church service … just like at home but in french … another surreal dream like moment … singing songs of worship to God in french.


Today we are heading to Provence …
