Megan & Joe came to stay with us for Easter vacation. We had a great time touring Paris with them. Thankfully Joe speaks French so he could be our translator. What a great city.
The Sacré–Coeur. This basilica is located at the highest point in the city and made for an awesome view of Paris.
The Hall of Mirrors. It was fun to walk down this hall, kind of crowded though.
Palace of Versailles. Wow, what an amazing place. Louis XIV lived here. It was his dad’s hunting lodge and he turned it into this gigantic palace.
Striking a pose in-front of the fountain.
The Arc de Triomphe. Napolean built this Arc to commemorate one of his victories. We walked to the top for a wonderful view of the city.
This nice French man insisted on taking our picture on this bridge. He told us (in French) how this is one of the most romantic spots in Paris and many movies are filmed here. He took like 20 pictures of us. Andrew & Heather joined us in Paris too. They are living in Germany waiting for Andrew to deploy to Iraq.
The Louvre, or just a wing of it. It’s shaped in a U-shape and is gigantic. It would take days or weeks to see everything. I guess we’ll just have to go back 🙂
