The Inverted Pyramid at the Louvre (for those who have read the DaVinci Code)
Tyler, Erik, Jessica and I posing in a very cool little part of Paris. It was near the Notre Dame, which is on an island on the Seine River. It was a vibrant and lively little area that we all loved.
Do I need to say what this is?
Looking up at the Eiffel Tower
This is the very lovely bed and breakfast were we stayed and I highly reccomend it.
After Paris, we headed southeast towards Chamonix in the French Alps. It was very beautiful drive and we all loved Chamonix. Chamonix was exactly what someone would expect of a little town in the Alps. We need to come back someday in the winter to ski here!
Tyler and Mom in the town square, with the church behind them.
Erik looking at the glacial runoff river that runs through Chamonix.
These are some lovely pictures of the Alps
I really liked France. Paris and Chamonix were very different places connected only by their love of baguettes. Paris was huge and busy whereas Chamonix was quiet and small. I enjoyed these towns immensly and would love to go back and spend more time in both places.
Up next Vernazza, Italy!
