Now we’re off to the metropolis, this nation’s capital: Paris
With a short stop at Chartres to break up the journey:
Wonderful cathedral and a lovely lunch. Today is a good day…
Where should we go first?
We chose the Eiffel Tower and we were blown away by it. Who knew practical engineering could be so beautiful? We took a lot of pictures:
And then there’s the views:
Musée Rodin we think, via the Hôtel des Invalides:
Not only is Rodin gifted he must have been incredibly patient. The casting process for his sculptures was a labourious undertaking but the results breathtaking:
And of course:
So then a little wonder on to Alexander III Bridge, great name for a bridge:
And then the bells, the bells:
Our last tourist stop is Montmartre for a view across Paris. Unfortunately it was raining but we did find a gem, Espace Dalí:
We loved France and Paris was a fitting end to our travels. To finish in one of the finest foodie capitals in the world was a shrewd move.
Now it’s time to go home, we’re stuffed.
Au revoir et merci.
