As you might imagine, Kelley and I are not big city people. We would much rather frolic through flowery meadows and gallivant in the mountains than look at another church or see another gallery of art. However, I think Paris is different. Paris has been one of the world’s greatest metropolises for over a thousand years! It is a place where you can see incredible art, sculptures, and architecture and eat scrumptious food… more importantly it is a fantastic place to stroll around, get lost in its mazes of streets and boulevards, flop by along the Seine and eat the most luscious baguette in the world, or just get a bottle of wine and have a picnic in front of the Eiffel Tower. Sounds terrible right? Well you would have thought so if you spoke to Kelley before the trip… it was with much resistance that I convinced Kelley to accompany me on a work trip to Paris. I had a meeting all day Monday, so we flew over late Friday night and had a fabulous weekend in the City of Lights. Enjoy!
On Monday, while I was working Kelley ventured off to visit Versailles…The palaces are closed Monday but it made for a peaceful and wonderful day to explore the gardens.
Well that is it for today, stay tuned for the another post about our Tour du Mont Blanc – coming soon!

Looks like you had much better weather than we did when we were there. Beautiful pictures We had to go up to Sacre Coeur to have a remembrance of one of our friends that had recently passed away and loved Paris and especially the basilica. The best thing we had to eat were cheese crepes off street vendors. You can sure tell that the guy that designed the pyramid at The Lourve, is the same guy who designed the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum in Cleveland. Love living vicariously through your adventures
