|Walk ... Eat ... Walk ... and eat again!|
Day 8 Walking in ParisOur second day in Paris and we were feeling more awake and a little less jet lagged. We decided to follow a map that our friend Peter in Kitchener had given us before we left. It looked like a great way to just get reacquainted with Paris in hurry. It ended up being a ten hour excursion and 18Ks from our door at noon and back again at 10 p.m. ... a superb 10 hours!!
So we are calling this walk an Introduction to Paris ... but, of course, Paris is so very much more than this! There is a map in this link above. Remember that you can shorten the walk from 18 K if you simply take the metro to the starting point at the Seine River.
On this walk you won't have time to go into the Louvre but at least you will familiarize yourself with the layout of this part of the city. You can always head back to visit some of the museums on another day.
We did do a tour of the Petite Palace, as our friend Peter had recommended, and we were glad we did ... it was magnificent and there was an impressionist exhibition there as a special event.
|An absolutely beautiful day to walk around Paris for 10 hours! Hello Eiffel Tower|
By the time we got home again we were absolutely done ... but the feeling was good.
Another day and another walk in Paris ... after a good rest we will be off again.
Walk On Strong,
