Paris is one of the most spectacular cities in the world containing a wealth of history and culture.

Eiffel Tower.

The Basilica of Sacré-Coeur is probably the second most popular tourist church of Paris, after Nôtre-Dame Cathedral.

From left to right, here are Andrea, Leesa, Anne, and Dawn. Photos supplied by Kim @ Sassiland.

Jardin de Luxemburg

We had the opportunity to meet up with a favourite blogger (Alisa from "Notre Vie Jutuse") who was visiting Paris... We made or way over to our fav. spot- Le Loir .... in the Marais and had a nice time together. (Picture: from left Alisa, Barbara, Leesa and Dawn).

Le jardin du Luxembourg is probably my favourite place in Paris.

Me, Noëlle, Linds, Susan and Cyr.

The gardens are a fantastic place.

Hahn at Parc de Sceaux.

My friend Lindsey (from San Diego) in a warm hug.

Alex in the town's neighbourhood "junkyard sale" -- I mean... swap meet... hehehe....

Here we are on the Seine at Pont Sully.

It's our "spot" for picnics when the whether is nice and the days are long! It's a great way to get together and socialize and enjoy both music, dance and the boats the go by on the Seine!

Dawn, me and Anne.
