“Those who don’t believe in Magic..will never find it!” Roald Dahl
My weekend was great…cooked a lot of new recipes…ran errands…read some from my current book “The Hunger Games“…went for a four mile hike in the woods with beautiful sunny skies…organized my food pantry…normal household chores…and went to a Superbowl party at my brother’s!
I’m on a black and white roll!
If I remember correctly...the staircase at Sacre Coeur in Paris, France - 2007
I took my niece, who at the time was 15 years old and we spent a week exploring Paris in 2007′. We stayed at the “Familia Hotel” in the “Latin Quarter” and used the “Metro” (subway) to travel…and walked a lot!
My Niece was at an awkward age…a bit self-conscious and at times a drag…complaining about the rain or people smoking…etc! I’ve found with my travels that I prefer to go “Solo” or with “Gap Adventures“!
Of course we saw the Louvre… Notre Dame…the Eiffel Tower…three times…the Pantheon…the Arc de Triumph…walked along the Champs Elysee and the Seine River…ate “Bon Glace” (good ice cream), chocolate crepes and many scrumptious pastries.
My fondest memories were of stopping in quaint cafes to have a drink or a bite to eat, shopping for bread, cheese & fruits and people watching.
One day we decided to take pictures of anyone with a dog, so we had fun snapping lots of photos!
Doesn’t this gentleman standing with my Niece look so “French”?
