France - Paris - Highlights (July 22 - 29)

An amazing week in Paris. Too much to go into detail about, so here is a touch of my favourite city.

Saint Chapelle is my favourite church, possibly of any I've ever seen. It's just so beautiful with all of the stained glass.

Arc de Triomphe - I drove around this in peak hour traffic. Scariest driving experience of my life.

Delicious tart from Laduree - snobby evil staff, tasty pastry.

Gargoyle at Notre Dame.

The Louvre - home of fabulous art. Love the sculptures in particular.

Notre Dame in the sun - beautiful church.

Our hotel was only a five minute walk from Notre Dame. Amazing location. Amazing city!

Dinner with friends - Shelley and Eric met us for the weekend. Paris with friends is even better!

Versailles bike ride - one of the best things we did in Paris.

Eiffel Tour at night - love it when it's all lit up.

Tour de France - what an amazing vibe and day.

Napoleon's tomb in Hotel les Invalide. Very impressive!

Sewers tour! Made Alec happy :)

Sacre Coeur - prettiest situated church ever, with a great view of Paris.
