All I can say is: WOW! Paris was amazing. Everywhere you looked, there were beautiful buildings, statues, parks, monuments, wide avenues, tree-lined streets and more. It was truly spectacular. Here are a few photos from our first 2 days there.

It doesn't disappoint; it's really a cool tower!
James couldn't leave Paris without touching the Eiffel Tower
Really pretty park called Jardin de Tuileries. There were movable green metal chairs that you could put anywhere you like: near the fountain, under a shade-tree, next to a statue you like, wherever! I love this concept and wish all public parks had it!
Some very manicured trees in the Jardin de Tuileries
Art is everywhere in Paris: even at the Subway Stations!
Paris is full of sculptures and statues, some to war heroes, and some romantic ones like this one called "Le Baiser" (The Kiss) by Rodin
