Our 5th Anniversary Trip to Paris

Our Paris trip to you say?...ah yes, magnifique.

Getting there and back was interesting: in either direction, it involved three trains, a plane, and a bus. We saw some great scenery - both French and English - along the way.

Once we were arrived in the city, we had right at 48 hours to explore. Here's what we experienced:

1) Grande Arche
2) Arc de Triomphe 
3) Champ Elysees
4) Tuileries
5) Louvre 
6) Notre Dame
7) Musee D'Orsay
8) Eiffel Tower
9) La Petite Chaise

Whew! Quite a whirlwind, but it was without a doubt one of the best trips of my life. Everything was great, and  I was especially taken with Notre Dame. The artistry inside and out was unbelievable in scope and beauty.

Our anniversary dinner was at the oldest restaurant in Paris - La Petite Chaise. It is a small, quaint place with a traditional French menu - which, to be honest, was intimidating at first. But then I started eating...and wow. I had escargot, duck, and gingerbread mousse cake. It do you say?...ah yes, off the chain.

But undoubtedly the best part of the trip was sharing it with my bride of 5 years. Happy anniversary Steph!
