Our last stop…Paris! When making travel plans several months ago, we found that it was very difficult to get a direct flight from Venice to NY, so we had to do a stop over in one of the other major cities. Our choices were London, Germany or Paris so we decided on Paris because Gabrielle said she wanted to go shoe shopping (Thank Goodness we didn’t have much time for shopping because she would have been very disappointed when I told her she couldn’t buy a pair of Louis Vuitton’s…she’s 10 and already has a shoe thing…I’m in BIG trouble!)
When arriving to Paris, we found that it was much cooler than we had expected, in the low 60’s to be exact, which was kind of a shock since we came from 100-105 degree temperatures. We spent two wonderful days in the city of love where we visited many beautiful sites like the Louvre and saw the inverted triangles…
