Parisian Life Part 1

In Victor Hugo House

Enjoying a quiet moment!

Amazing old door

Getting ready for a performance

Books galore!

Time flies and already is has been a month since I went to Paris with Aimee, it was great weekend. On the Saturday we did lots of walking and after enjoying breakfast in cool cafe we headed to Place des Vosges. It is the oldest planned square in Paris, we walked around the whole square under the arched walkway. There are lots of shops and galleries, it is here that we visited the house and museum of Victor Hugo. It is really a beautiful square to see!

From there we found yourselves heading to the river Seine and to see Notre Dame Cathedral, even though we had both seen this amazing cathedral a few times.

Then we walked in the direction of the book shop Shakespeare & Company, which seems to be quite well know in Paris. It has a selection of used books as well as normal priced ones. it was very busy as you can see in the photo. Apparently there is a sign that says please do not take photos, but everyone was taking photos and it is a great shop, so why not!

We headed up to the Place de la Sorbonne, stopped for food and drink then continued on our way to the wonderful jardin du Luxembourg which I will tell you about in the next post.
