So, we went to Paris last week and enjoyed every bit of it. This was a couple's trip, my wife and I plus her brother and his wife. The Paris metro was invaluable for getting around and saving time and also fairly easy to navigate through. If anyone is interested in visiting and seeing as much as possible, I recommend using the Paris Go Pass which offers admission to tons of museums, wine tasting, bus rides, and tours. I did feel like we cheated a bit since most Parisiens can speak English, so we never really relied on our (pathetic) French-speaking skills. I think our next European adventure will be in the UK, looking at Scotland, and England as our next two destinations.




Our view of Iceland from the plane.

Notre Dame Cathedral is closed to the public until next year.

Le Louvre

Mr. and Mrs. Travo at Montmartre.

Moulin Rouge was a short walk from our apartment, a very touristy area, and party central.

Pere Lachaise Cemetary is a must-stop.

Protestors occupied the top of Arc de Triomphe.

Le Eiffel was closed to the public due to remodeling for next year's Olympics. However, we had a reservation for Le Jules Verne and were able to go up anyway. What a fantastic restaurant experience on the second floor of the Eiffel Tower.
