We caught the Eurostar train to Paris from London. Premier Business Class I think it was called. Great fun and very quiet. Plenty to eat and drink. Even the cakes were like soccer balls in honour of the World Cup in Paris.
One of the greatest icons of our time. And yes, it's inspirational. We went early in the morning and beat all the tourists.
Our hotel in Paris, Le Burgundy, was one of the most beautiful I'd seen. Huge rooms with wonderful service in every department. We had an enormous balcony with a gorgeous garden.
The bedroom which had a hallway leading to the front door and the bathroom. Wonderfully fitted.
Treats and wine, every day.
Even the fabrics were worth photographing. Yes, I loved it.
Leading to the restaurant. Perfect meals for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
Did I mention that my favourite flower is the Peony Rose? The foyer and restaurant had dozens of them, every day. Heaven.
The Paris Opera House. Home of the Phantom of the Opera.
Spectacular and ornate. I was so glad we saw it.
Up early and over to the Eiffel Tower. We took the lift and went to the top. What a great view.
Another icon, The Arc De Triomphe. Imposing in its enormity. You must go to the top.
Great views of all of Paris. Even the Eiffel Tower gets a look in.
Just wandering along next to the Seine river, I found a beautiful 'vertical' garden.
The Palace of Versaille. Words can't describe the grandeur and opulance.
The ballroom. Incredible chandeliers and furnishings.
The gardens. I loved them. So much work.
I also loved my new French shoes. I think I bought 7 pairs of shoes on that trip.
Near the Arc De Triomphe was the Swaroski Crystal shop. Believe it or not the staircase was made of crystals! I just HAD to ask for my photo on the stairs.
