Le Saint Severin Hotel
Travel Blogs from Paris
... counter I went to the information stand and asked.... suddenly we were out of the queues and into the gardens prior to a tour which would then zoom us straight past everyone and into areas no one else could get to !! EXCELLENT.
We walked first around the wonderful gardens - ate crepes at a cafe, and then suddenly time was running out to get back for the tour at the front of the place ---- let's just say - it was a tremendous rush ...
... was out snapping shots all over the place, even if I didn't know what things were or if they were just simply gorgeous displays of building architecture or streetscapes, it was typically French and very appealing to the eye.

The airport was really very lovely and I had my first Café’ Americano and we split a croissant in Paris!
On to Barcelona! ...
... McDonalds in a gallery that had our friends Dior, Chanel & Armani (who thought to put a McD's there?)
- stand directly in the centre of Paris
- climb stairs, and stairs and yes, you got it.. stairs up to Sacre-coeur
- eat a multitude of edible souvenirs I will never forget!
And.... walk around wearing matching red berets... like we jus' don't care!
And fun fact, even if you only say about ...
