Saint-Étienne-du-Mont - Paris. - July 2013

After an amazing day with Linda,
I was meeting someone else . I was
meeting up with Peter, whose blog is
A totally amazing blog with
fabulous photos and so much
interesting information, a great writer.
Peter's detail is fantastic , nothing left out.
He is originally from Sweden but has
lived in Paris for about 40 years.
Have a read and follow. If you love
Paris, you will love his blog.
Initially we thought it
might be possible for Linda and I to meet
up with Peter , but unfortunately not.
So whilst waiting I thought I would take a look at
This church is situated behind the Pantheon and
contains the shrine of St. Geneviève, the patron saint of Paris.

A wonderful church to visit and so much to see around this area.

If you love France , why not go over to
Paulita's blog - An Accidental Blog
and have a look at her
Dreaming of France meme..

If you have any of your own stories to share with us
whether it be a your travels, a book you have read,
or maybe a film OR you just love France.
Maybe you would like to join us on Linky.
We love to see it through the eyes of others.

More wonderful sights in Paris with Linda ..

So much to see and so much to do..
Linda and I had a great time, eyes left and right,
up and down ..
No matter how many times you go to Paris,
if you meet up with someone who lives
there and walk around, you will definitely see
Paris through different eyes ♥
 A BIG thank you to Linda of Frenchless in France
for meeting up with me (at last) . We have been trying
to meet up  each time I have visited but timings
didn't match up.
Linda has a super blog , please go over and say HI,
you will not be disappointed. ♥
Linda and I stopped to look a the menu (below)
the ladies seated in the window , said it was tasty .
One day I might go there.
The list just gets bigger and bigger!!

Sorry not the best of photos , you can just see the murals high up!!

Anyone for Tea??


A beautiful place to end our meet up ..

A big heartfelt THANK YOU ♥
More to come as my day did not end there!!

Little Montage - Another little courtyard in Paris ..

Linda knows some wonderful little places ..
Yep I am still sharing my July trip ,

Wonder who  lives behind this door?

Inside this little doorway is a hairdresser/beauty place :-)

Wouldn't it be fab to have your own little
apartment tucked away in Paris somewhere??


Family life comes first ,
and I have had problems with
my computer ,,
but I know that you understand
and love seeing my photos no matter
when they were taken ♥
