    Jeanne d'Arc

    August 5, 2019 in France ⋅ ☁️ 23 °C

    Heute morgen haben wir uns zum Frühstück mit Gregory im Cafe de Flores getroffen! Bei Croissant und Cafe Creme haben wir uns auf ein Stündchen gesehen. Danach sind wir zurück zum Auto geschleudert, am Jardin Luxembourg vorbei durch das Quartier Latin.
    Wir sind relativ zeitig nach Orleans gefahren und konnten so den ganzen sonnigen und sehr heißen Nachmittag zum Sightseeing verwenden.

    Il pleuvait - Teil 2

    October 20, 2019 in France ⋅ 🌧 11 °C

    Am Nachmittag ging es dann nochmal in die Kirche Saint Sulpice zu einem kleinen Konzert mit Chor und Orgel. Danach sind wir zum Centre Pompidou spaziert. Wir haben uns das Kulturzentrum allerdings nur von außen angesehen. Gefühlt hat es immer dann geregnet oder genieselt, wenn wir gerade draußen waren. Gut, dass wir unsere Regenschirme stets griffbereit hatten.

    Abends waren wir dann noch lecker Essen bevor wir wieder zurück ins Hotel sind für eine heiße Dusche.

    Salut

    Church of Saint-Sulpice, Paris

    September 1, 2018 in France ⋅ ☀️ 20 °C

    After endless wandering we finally found what was meant to be our first stop for the day - Church of Saint-Sulpice. This is the second largest church in Paris and was built in 1646. While it has the amazing size, it was obvious that it is not the wealthiest church in Paris and was in fact in need of maintenance, cleaning and repair, which was sad to see.

    It is known for the Great Organ which was reconstructed in 1862, and the unique holy water fonts which were made from the two halves of an enormous shell given to the King by the Venetian public.

    Outside the church was a lovely square and the Fontaine Saint-Sulpice. A nice place to sit and admire the Parisian surroundings.

    St Sulpice

    November 14, 2016 in France ⋅ ☁️ 8 °C

    This church was in the book/movie the DaVinci Code written by Dan Brown, starring Tom Hanks. For those who saw the movie, this church is the one that had the "Rose Line" in it that Silas visited and later Robert Langdon (Hanks) and Sophie, all looking for the keystone. While there really is a line there, its not called the Rose Line and the information about the line in the movie is pure fiction.Read more

    St. Germaine Des Pres Hotel, Paris, Fran

    June 22, 2018 in France ⋅ ⛅ 19 °C

    We have arrived. When we walked into the hotel to check in we were greeted by name. What an interesting room key we have. You leave the key at the front desk when you leave so they know who's in and out (the key is also huge to carry) upon returning they remember which room is yours and automatically hand you the key. The breakfasts are great (fresh squeezed orange juice).Read more

    Paris, France

    May 30, 2017 in France ⋅ ☁️ 17 °C

    Paris is an incredibly busy city, with heaps to see and do. The drivers here are absolutely insane, we were so glad Joshua was behind the wheel! We were up early today to make the best of our only full day in Paris and we had a very busy, yet very successful day. We beat the line-up for the Catacombs, before travelling to the top of the Montparnasse Tower to check out the views across Paris and also visited Les Invalides, the resting place of Napoleon Bonaparte.Read more

    Río Sena

    September 15, 2019 in France ⋅ ☀️ 26 °C

    Después del museo, crepes en un puesto tipo caseta, con sillas y mesas al aire libre, al lado del Sena. Desde el museo se divisaban el Montmartre y el Louvre. Al fondo detrás de Felipe y Juandi, Notre Dame.Read more
