Saving the best ’til last

On our recent trip to Paris, we really did save some of the best things in the city until the last day of our short holiday. Normally we are not so much into jamming a large number of sights or attractions into one day (usually we tend to be more of the slow-travel approach, choosing a couple of particular things or places to see in a day, and to really soak them up). But on this final day in Paris, we took a different approach (largely owing to the bad weather we had had during many of the preceding days), and we climbed to the top of both the Arc de Triomphe and the Sacré-Cœur Basilica, lunched in a quaint, old-world boulangerie in Montmatre, and even managed to squeeze in a return trip to the Louvre. Oh and one  other thing. We got to see this:

And yes, it was as incredible as it looks… Hopefully this photo has piqued your interest and you are keen to know more, because I’m going to write more about one of our favourite Paris experiences tomorrow… In fact it may have been one of my favourite art experiences ever…

  3. My biggest mistake when traveling is trying to cram too many things in to the day because I want to make the most of our trip and get the most “bang for our buck.” We land up just feeling really stressed and rushed as a result. Luckily, we’ve learned from our past travel experiences and now slow down and enjoy the scenery and not worry about getting to see EVERYTHING while we’re traveling.
    Also, since I’m reading this post a day later, I’m happy that I dont have to wait for the reveal of the rainbow circles. I have no clue what they are! Off to read your other post!
