Near the Sacre Coeur

Not known for being the friendliest of the French people, Parisians sort of have a reason to be arrogant about their city... it is pretty wonderful afterall. This trip of mine and Milton's to one of the world's most famous capitals reaffirmed how impressive it can be with sights like the Sacre Coeur, Notre Dame, Eiffel Tower and the Louvre easily occupying our time there. All interspersed, of course, with frequent stops for chocolate eclairs. The fact that vegetarianism is considered something of a disease in France (which can be cured with the right French meat - horse anyone?) didn't even hamper my enjoyment as I simply stuck to local wines and cheese with baguettes instead. Milton and I also booked into a wine tasting afternoon so we could learn to appreciate the delicate bouquets on offer.

.. rolling out of there drunk and toting bags full of clinking wine bottles probably wasn't the done thing, but it was certainly fun.

One of the better ideas we had while in Paris was to go on a Da Vinci Code walking tour. Neither of us are particular fans of the book, but it gave us a theme by which to see some of the city's highlights and our guide was able to answer a lot of random questions we had for him. Plus, it was only something like £8 and included entry into the Louvre... definitely a bargain.

In all a wonderful trip away and not in any way dulled by the fact that I had been to Paris before. Like London, there is so much to see that you could probably spend a lifetime there and never get to all of it, so it is a place certainly worth returning to and one that gets the thumbs up from moi!
