Paris Week Day 3

Hi!

I hope you're enjoying my Paris Week posts.  It's been great reminiscing while I've been writing the posts.  Today I have some of the photos we took on Rob's iPod.  Without thinking or planning it we ended up taking 'selfies' where ever we went.  It was lots of fun and some of my favourite photos were our selfies.  Sorry - this is going to be a photo heavy post!

Waiting for the plane to take off - our first overseas flight!

Our first view of the Eiffel Tower

The Arc de Triomphe

The Opera Garnier - beautiful building.

Notre Dame - very impressive!

Point Zero outside of Notre Dame.  The point from which all distances on Paris are measured from.  Apparently if you stand here you will return to Paris.  Fingers crossed!

The Louvre.

Inside the Louvre.  Someone famous in the background!

In the Gardens at Versailles.  This was the Temple of Love - I think that was what is was called!  There was a statue of Cupid under the dome.

Ohh la la - The famous Moulin Rouge.

OMG!  THE best sorbet I have EVER had.  A must-do if you ever go to Paris.  The 20 minute line up was well worth it!

The Invalides.  There's 12 kilos of gold covering that dome!

Just on sunset at the very top of the Eiffel Tower.

One more of the Eiffel Tower.  Beautiful by day, stunning at night!


Sacre Coeur (Sacred Heart).  I think that's how it's spelt!  A beautiful church on the top of a hill that you can see from most places in Paris. 

The Pantheon, where a lot of notable Parisians are buried.

Finally, the Casino in Singapore.  It looks like a giant boat that's been placed upon three skyscrapers.
Thanks for sharing our 'selfies' from Paris.  I hope you can pop back tomorrow for some more photos, this time from our DSLR camera.

Bye for now,

Tina
