Travel - Paris 1999
Return to Travel

In 1999 we had an opportunity to visit Paris, France for 5 days.  It all began when I received an e-mail from USAirways about deep discounted tickets to Paris.  I called Roxianne and asked her if she wanted to go to Paris.  Of course she said yes so four days later we were there. 

Paris is a beautiful city both architecturally and culturally.  We had a wonderful time exploring the many art galleries, museums, cathedrals, and shops in and around the city.  On a Sunday afternoon we visited the Palace of Versailles outside the city.  Douglas's favorite attractions were the Musee de Armee, a museum of archaic and modern weapons, and the Lego store that he found on the Champs Elyssee.  My favorites were the Musee d'Orsay and its collection of impressionists as well as the cathedral of Notre Dame.
