We had planned on going to the US tomorrow. We had plane tickets, and a rental car reserved; hotels reservations, plans to stay with family and friends, and other reservations in place. However, with rising COVID cases, and travel challenges at CDG and Heathrow, we came to the difficult decision that it was prudent to cancel the trip. We were greatly disappointed. We were looking forward to seeing everyone, and attending the wedding of our dear friends; sigh. Maybe we’ll get to go home for Christmas; time will tell. It was so hard to cancel the trip. 😢
We were able to get refunds, credits, and vouchers for most of our reservations; however, our train tickets to Paris were non-refundable. So we decided a trip to Paris was the next best thing. 😉
We are fortunate to have visited Paris on multiple occasions, and have seen many of the famous landmarks here, but there’s always something more to see. Tomorrow we’ll be visiting Jardin Des Plantes, and maybe a museum or two since the heatwave continues, and bien sur, we’ll enjoy some good meals. So we’re turning lemons into lemonade, as they say.
Here are a few of my favorite photos from past visits in this iconic city.
Many of these photos are from a long time ago, so I’m looking forward to updating my Paris photo album over the next few days.
