Our trip to France

posted on 16th of october, 2014

My wife and I just returned from our second trip to Europe visiting France this time for 11 days. Our main focus was Paris with side trips to the Claude Monet home, Castles of the Loire Valley and the Versailles Palace. We did not have to move from our hotel but found that touring is tiring having to use the public subway system and then walk to various attractions. Needless to say we did a lot of walking. The side tours were bus trips. One thing that stood out is that Paris has spectacular museums especially the Louvre which is huge and could take 3-4 days to see all of the exhibits. Other spectacular places are the Eiffel Tower, Notre Dame church and the Sacred Heart church.

Some nice shots of Paris, my wife and I were in France earlier this year and I shot 1500 images, mostly down south in Provence where we stayed in a town Called La Ciotat.
Oh and I think in your description of the ingredients of the French Onion soup the word is "Consommé" not Consume.

To avoid the lines at museums we purchased a museum pass prior to our trip. You can buy a voucher through your travel agent and when you arrive in parís that can be exchanged for the musuem pass at the Grand Rex theatre. It will save you alot of time and let you skip the lines.

About me

I like to travel and have been to many places like California, Europe, Maine and Mexico. I live in Washington D.C. and have also taken pictures around my home including the new WWII Memorial. Digital cameras come and go so like everyone here I am always trading up. Just finished shooting the latino festival in mount pleasant neighborhood of washington dc. There were a lot of colorful people there. My education is an AA degree in Photography from Montgomery college in Maryland, though I have found that photography is a continual learning experience.
