Girls Trip - Day 14, Paris
Today is our last full day in Paris. What an amazing trip with some amazing friends. Memories for a lifetime for me. Danielle and I decided to take in a couple of last sights while Nicolie, Katie and Shane did some shopping.
We visitied Notre Dame and toured the inside. Again, this is something that photographs just do not do justice with its vast ceilings and beautiful stain glass windows. The detail in the windows and even the doors is incredible. From Notre Dame we went to the most ornate, beautiful bridge in Paris - Pont Alexandre III. The bridge is also near the Arc de Triomphe and gave us somewhat of a view, that and all Monday traffic. Lastly we took the train outside of Paris to the suburb of Saint Denis to visit the Saint Denis Basilica. This church holds all but three of the kings of France in its crypt including some other prominent figures like Marie Antoinette.
We meet up with the other girls and headed out for our last dinner in France. We found a delicious Greek restaurant and followed it up with unique Gelato with flavors like Chocolate/Wasabi/Ginger named Black Sugar Sex Magic and Popcorn/Carmel named of Porn Cop. Truly a play on words and a play with mixing of flavors.
By my count, we walk about 115, ate 10 Pain Au Chocolate each, had gelato at least 4 times and saw a ton of wonderous sites and interesting people. Thank you girls for a great trip.
Now for the long journey home.
