Basilique du Sacré-Coeur – Paris

I was going to skim over our two days in Paris as I’m getting rather tired of doing these ‘France’ blogs –  even though I love, love, loved the holiday … but I must finish what I’ve started … to make it complete!!  If not for anyone but myself :)    I also feel that some of the places, we visited, in Paris,  need as much attention to detail as I’ve done throughout my blogs.

Soooo …   here we go :)   Deep breath !! :)   Hubby and I had an early start on our first day on our own in Paris, after the tour.  First stop .. Basilique du Sacré-Coeur, Montmartre

    Wow! I wish I can go to Paris someday!

  2. I’m not tired of your French posts yet, but I know the feeling. After last year’s holiday in the Cape it felt like the posts just didn’t want to end and I thought people will get bored.
