Time to share some photos from our 3 week long trip to Paris! It took some time to sort through the hundreds that I took. It was an incredible trip, and we loved experiencing daily Parisian life, grabbing croissants in cafes, shopping, and wandering the city streets. Of course, we hit lots of tourist spots too, like the Eiffel Tower…

Awesome place with live music underground!
The Catacombs were so creepy. Millions of bones far underground!
We all know what this is 🙂

We took a day trip to Honfleur, about 200 kilometers north of Paris.
After Honfleur, we drove across a little inlet to Etretat, a gorgeous little town on the English Channel.
We missed Gelato!!
Tourists write their names on locks and “lock their love” to bridges over the Seine. Joel and I didn’t do it – but it was an interesting sight to see…
The Louvre was a gorgeous maze of history; we were only able to be there for a few hourse, but what we saw was awesome.
Smaller than I expected, but it was a beautiful painting…
We stayed just a few blocks from Notre Dame, and walked by it nearly every day. I can’t imagine what it would be like to live near history like that – so incredible.
We climbed hundreds of stairs to the top of Notre Dame and saw the famed Gargoyles!
Practiced some camera techniques while I was there, like multiple exposure.

One of my favorites 🙂
Had some fun shooting portraits on Monte Martre (famous site of Parisian artists).
Love Starbucks in any country! I like my French name 🙂
Versailles on a beautiful, sunny day.
But nothing compares to this backyard!!
Marie Antoinette’s ballroom from her personal palace.
Marie Antoinette had her own little village built – so she could play peasant with her servants. Just wow.
The Paris Zoo! That was such a fun day. We saw this Parrot… on the wrong side of the cage!
Beautiful flowers from my love!
I’ve assembled these photos and more into a photobook, like we do with all our adventures 🙂 It’s a fun way to remember these trips! So I guess the only question is… Where to next?
