Snippets from Paris # 2 .. Eiffel Tower

Snippets from Paris # 2 .. Eiffel Tower

Oooops  forgot to publish this with all the excitement of Elaine and Bryan’s engagement !!!!    Am already doing the follow-on post and found this in drafts !!

I think I’m going to have to do ‘snippets from Paris’ in chronological order otherwise I’m going to get terribly confused!!  My idea was to jumble photos … to make it less boring 😉

I tried to capture everyday life throughout France during our two weeks there, which of course, included 4 days in Paris … as I will probably never return sadly (so many more places to see and so many more things to do!!!)   and photographs tell our story of our holiday, not only seeing the tourist sights but little details I don’t want to forget
