Paris Day 1

Hello!  I don't have a lot of time to write this morning, but since we will be getting back late today, I wanted to get a post out so that I don't get too far behind.  We are heading to Frankfurt today despite the never-ending rain.  Honestly, I have had enough of it!  Thankfully, it is warm so it isn't as bad as it could be.  Anyway, the first stop on our France trip was Paris.  We took a train from where we live to Paris.  The trip is about 4 hours if you take the ICE train otherwise it can be upwards to 6 hours.  My mom had been to Paris in 1989.  At that time, we had done a grand tour of Europe.  On the day we went to Paris for some reason we didn't go inside the Sacre Coeur.  I am not sure why.  Anyway, this was something my mom really wanted to do if we stopped in Paris, so we went.  Unless you are in really great shape I would recommend taking the bus.  We walked and boy the stairs to get there were a killer.  The chapel is beautiful and well worth the visit.  Afterward, we grabbed a crepe and did some walking through the street of  Montmarte which is the district where this cathedral is located. The neighborhood has a slightly bohemian flare.  Then it was time to find our Air B and B as we needed to get the keys from the owner and get some dinner.  The apartment was cute, but the stairs were a killer.  Thankfully, we only stayed there one night.  Ok, I need to run!  I need to catch the train.  Have a great weekend!


Dearest Kelleyn,
So glad you made it to the Sacre Coeur this time and you captured it well.
Original crêpes is a must when being in France.
Enjoy the remainder of summer—rain or not!
Wonderful photos not a place I will ever get to visit
