I wondered through The Latin Quarter, St. Germain and on to Les Invalides where almost everything was closed, as it was a national holiday in France yesterday.

Saint-Sulspice Church, Paris

Enjoyed a quiet moment at the beautiful but in need of restoration, Saint-Sulpice, before I headed on to my final destination, the Eiffel Tower, which I never tire of admiring.  I remember the very first time I saw it. I didn’t expect for it to just “jump out” from behind one of the monumental buildings at the Trocadero.  Bigger than I had imagined and equally more beautiful than any photograph could possibly ever capture it.

It took my breath away and brought tears to my eyes.


On my way back, I decided to meander along the Seine, where I got a peak at perhaps one of the most interesting roof tops of Paris (from the inside)

P1170965At this point I feel, I need to include a link to a commercial by Cartier, that must be of the best in recent years:

L’Odyssée de Cartier
