Another great visit......

was to the Arc de Triomphe..we were in awe once the workman manage to create this magnificent monument is beyond us. On reading the history the foundations took 2 years to build, and just look at the design in the arches!!

In the picture you can see a flame, This is The Flame of Remembrance on the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier and is a tribute to the dead, who were never identified in the First World War I and the Second World War.

After this we walked down the Champs-Elysées, looking at all the fantastic cafes and shops ..we were on our way to The Lourve and then to meet Leesa!


  1. My favorite view in Paris is off the top of the Arc de Triumph

  2. Hi WL and Cherrypie...Thanks pleased you liked the photos...Cherrypie, it was realy packed that day..yes I know which view you mean, I have seen loads of pictures of it...maybe next time!!

  3. Anne..i must tell you that everytime i come and visit your blog my virus detector finds a virus... :-(

  4. Great Collage and you are right that it merits to be on its own.

    When walking down the Champs Elysee a few years ago, we were amused to find huge posters of Positano on the Zara shop there.

  5. Just to say I can read this fine following your twitter message. And yes, they are wonderful pictures. Lucky you to have travelled to such wonderful places.

  6. Hi Anne,
