Paris | Sunday wandering

Yes, we simply loved Paris. How lucky were we to enjoy the Paris tour on a Sunday.

Paris was glamorous. Exploring around Paris really was an eye opener and a chance of a lifetime. The city was so elegant and colourful; purely rich in history, culture and architecture.

We loved the time spent exploring the splendid cobble-stoned streets flanked by beautiful buildings in the crisp, warm air. And not forgetting the big crowds and street plays too.

Here are random photos that I took while wandering in Paris over the weekend. We covered quite few places in a day. The traffic wasn't that bad on most parts of Paris. And we did get a sudden rain in the afternoon while we were in Lafayette.

I think I took the shots of Eiffel Tower the most. We did not go in as time consuming. But the tower itself was panoramic! Wow!

There was also some shopping done in Lafayette. We were there for 3 hours and we also took the opportunity to go to the Lafayette building rooftop for the city view.

Wow..shopping! I didn't do any shopping then cos on wheelchair susah sikit.. but I did get to go up the Eiffel tower, no need queuing cos they are very friendly to the disabled like me then.. my son and my friend also got to go up without queuing and lots cheaper, I think for me, it was free.. :) I think each day, the queue there is the same, very super long! :)
