my visit to Paris

Considering a vacation in February coming from a freezing cold Toronto winter doesn't usually evoke thoughts of Paris. But it was right for us and how lucky that it was at least 20 degrees warmer than most days we would have had back home. One day even got up to 15C with sunshine! Here is a quick look at some of what you may have seen on my Facebook page, plus a few others, hoping to make you want to visit what I think is one of the prettiest cities in the world!


 Gotta have a shot in front of the L'Arc de Triomphe on the Champs Elysée


Part of the Napoleon Apartments at the Louvre - I would still use area rugs like this today!


A 'living' building


The cell Marie Antoinette was in before being beheaded - other cells were not quite as nice, but their fate was the same


Angel hair breading on shrimp with guacamole and balsamic salad - at L'Ange 20


A shot of the corner of the Eiffel Tower - we were so lucky with sunny skies on most days


 I love the movie 'Amelie', which takes place in the Le Montmartre area of Paris  - what a treat to have lunch at the cafe it took place in!


 This is the courtyard of the apartment we stayed at - built in 1530 - ever so charming! The flower boxes in the top right of the photo were in front of the windows of our apartment
