Way back in 2007, our family had the pleasure of hanging out in Paris for a full week while on our way to the Russian Far East! What a week! This was my third trip to the "City of Love" and I have yet to tire of this magnificent town.
The first time I came to Paris was way back in 1994 with my mom, dad and Lien. We stayed for a few days and had a blast as well. This time was with Cokie and Som!
We spent about a week biking the side streets of Paris visiting basically every single nook and cranny of the entire city. We had a wonderful time visiting the sights and museums and shops of the many neighborhoods. We hung out in the Sorbonne and walked the bowels of the Paris sewers and Catacombes. We experienced the great art collections of the Louvre, the Musee D'Orsay, and so many more.
It was during this trip that we learned of our dear friend, Victor's death, so we spent time in Notre Dame commemorating his life. This was my first actual spiritual visit in to a cathedral of this type in my life. I must admit, this added dimension made my appreciation of this special place even higher.
