Exploring paris - The walk to Rue du rivioli

took me past many great places...Assemblee Nationale, The Place de la Concorde Obélisque de Luxor, and Jardin Tuileries. Walking is the best way to explore Paris, you can be gone for hours.

This particular day, I wanted to go to Rue Du Rivoli to WH Smiths to see my friend Kim, who I knew was at work there.

Do you know what was great? This time, I knew where it was!!!
It was a lovely summers day, the crowds were out and I was in no hurry!!





And finally to WH Smiths where I saw Kim and a display I wanted to see in the shop window..this display was for a book written by a blogger Pia Jane Bijerk , the book is Paris: Made by Hand!


I had a fabulous time, the walk was excellent. I did continue walking after I stopped for refreshments, so more photos to follow!!

Sorry, the photo I named Concorde is actually The Obélisque de Luxor in the Place de la Concorde.
