Memories of the City of Light

A few days in Paris...what would you do?


We saw many of the famous sights such as the Musée du Louvre (above), 
l'arc de Triomphe (below) at the top of the Champs-Elysées...   


We walked and walked and I took loads of pictures...
thankfully my patient boyfriend didn't seem to mind!


Paris is such a photogenic city and the beautiful light coming through the clouds 
on most days we were there gave some of my photographs quite a magical quality.


We were lucky enough to be able to watch the Tour Eiffel do its twinkly 
sparkling at night from our hotel window too!


As my boyfriend had never been to Paris before, we opted to ascend 
the Eiffel Tower at night, which was pretty cool.


It's a great way to see the lights of the city.


We also managed to enjoy some of the café culture 
that France is so well known for...



I also enjoyed seeing some of the pretty Parisian architecture.




I noticed rather a lot of prehistoric creatures about the place 
(no complaints here though!)...


...Jurassic Paris!


So long, oh City of Light...I am certain we shall meet again!


P.S. If you click on any of the pictures, you can view the photographs at a larger size in a slideshow!

Stunning pictures, Cat! Still so in love with the dinosaurs, hope we see some when we go over next(!). What a great idea to go up the Eiffel Tower at night as well! *logs that one away* ;) xx
