Climbing Up Notre Dame Tower

Notre Dame
This weekend, I crossed one off my Paris bucket list – climbing up the Towers of Notre Dame. Since we’ve lived here, we’ve only gone up the Arc de Triomphe and the rooftop of department store Printemps for views of Paris below, so it was nice to experience a different vantage point. Here are some pictures of the commanding views from the top of this Parisian landmark.

A Weekend in Paris

Here are a few snapshots taken while sightseeing with my latest set of guests at Chez Jacqueline this weekend. Besides getting to catch up with an old college friend, one of the highlights was finally going up the Arc de Triomphe for my first time. It was incredible to watch the sun set over Paris and the Eiffel Tower begin to glow a warm gold with the moon shining just above it.  I love this city!

Tyler’s Pic of the Day: Notre Dame Edition

Rio & Tyler at Notre Dame
If you’ve been a follower since the beginning, you might’ve noticed I’ve been slowly taking Tyler to all of the famous sights in Paris. Eiffel Tower, Sacré-Coeur, Louvre… and now Notre-Dame.
Me and Tyler at Notre Dame
As it was a rare sunny day yesterday (and a holiday in France!), our little family decided to walk the three miles from our apartment to Notre-Dame and Hôtel de Ville so Tyler could get his glamour shot there. Unfortunately, there’s some weird platform construction in front of Notre-Dame to celebrate its 850th anniversary, so we couldn’t get an unobstructed photo. I guess we’ll just have to return again.
