Right onto Paris.
On Monday we enjoyed the wonders of the Batobus service. A glass topped boat that acts as a water bus whereby you buy a ticket for the day and then can hop on and off all day long.
The boat circled a route that consisted of 8 stops, all at prime locations. We got on at the Louvre stop and sailed up to and turning around past the Eiffel Tower, to come back down right by the huge structure.
We then carried on down past the Musee d'Orsay right on to the Notre Dame where we got off.
We enjoyed a yummy lunch in a little restaurant over looking this great building, then we explored the area as we wanted to find a certain bookshop - The Shakespeare Company - which has been selling English printed books for years.
After seeing the sights we got back on the boat to travel back to the Champs Elysée, my only focus was to find...nope, not the clothes or handbag shops, but the Paris Saint-Germain football club shop!
We looked at the shops, but I was more impressed by the architecture than the clothes etc, this caught my eye though...
Much like the price of the handbags really, out of my league!
Once more we got back on the boat to enjoy the sights of the trip once more, it was lovely as it started to get dark so many areas were now lit up creating a different scene from the one we saw early.
After the disappointment of visiting the Louvre, this trip certainly made up for it. Little did we know we were going to be even more impressed by our Tuesday trip to the Musee d'Orsay! Tell you about that next time.
Take care Zo x
