- Vin RougeI fell in love, in love with the city of Paris. It wasn't love at first sight, I had been there a number of times and not noticed it's true beauty until I got the opportunity to live there.

Having had a great, action packed day yesterday, and slightly disappointed that we ran out of time to check out the views of Paris from atop the Notre-Dame, we worked it into our Posted by Tiki Touring in Tiki Touring | Nov 3, 2013
- Just Plain QuirkyOne of the things that make for wonderful shared memories of our travels is the "just plain quirky".
Sometimes it's the serious art that's quirky, sometimes the street art, sometimes the way people decorate their buildings, sometimes people's behaviour Posted by OwenGadflies in Are We There Yet? | Nov 3, 2013
- Paris and the SeineWe chose to not do the optional excursions offered by AMA, and instead headed out on our own after a leisurely morning. The metro/light rail system is relatively easy to navigate and we purchased a full day ticket for Posted by rpickett in Rusty Pickett, ECC | Nov 2, 2013

As I mentioned in an [[http://owengadflies.travellerspoint.com/18/|earlier entry]], on our first visit we saw some of the iconic places in Paris, but as we Posted by OwenGadflies in Are We There Yet? | Nov 2, 2013
- Paris and the SeineWe departed our home for the past seven nights at about 9:30am and started our city tour. We were essentially killing time until our hotel rooms were ready but the tour was really good. I saw a bunch Posted by rpickett in Rusty Pickett, ECC | Nov 1, 2013
- Paris and the SeineWe cruised in the evening closer to Paris and arrived at Conflans. Our excursion today was the Malmaison, the home of Napoleon Bonapart and Josephine. It's relatively small in comparison to many chateaus and is quite liveable. Posted by rpickett in Rusty Pickett, ECC | Nov 1, 2013
- Paris and the SeineWe spent our morning cruising the Seine, as we headed to our next stop of Les Andelys. It was a beautiful morning and the cruising was very relaxing.
