Here’s the first batch of photos from my holiday. These are the more ‘touristy‘ type ones – I’ll be posting the more ‘arty‘ ones on my photoblog, so be sure to take a look at these also!
Notes on Paris: I’ve been up the Eiffel Tower during the daytime but at night it’s even better, go right to the top and enjoy the spectacular views! Owing to a French idiosyncrasy the Louvre is closed on Tuesdays so plan accordingly. Walking around Paris is undoubtedly the best way to see it but when you want to get somewhere far-away fast use the Metro. For a taste of real French food which won’t break the bank and a trip back in time don’t miss Restaurant Chartier (this is if you can find it!).
