In 2005 I visited France for the first time with my parents and my sister. We went to Paris for 5 days and had a great trip.
I had vegetables à la greque and creme brulée that tasted like vanilla ice cream. I fell in love with the colourful whimsy of Pylones and saw the wonderful stained glass windows of Notre Dame (An obsession of mine since watching Disneys “The Hunchback of Notre Dame”).
I went to the second floor of the Eiffel Tower (My vertigo suffering sister and mother refused to go further, my father was somewhere else in Paris in search of a bookstore).
I went to Louvre and saw Mona Lisa, along with so many other paintings. I saw l’arc de triomphe, La Grande Arche de la Fraternité and walked down Champs-Élysées.
We had lunches by the Seine and saw the Sainte-Chapelle, which was breathtaking.
