An amazing introductory into the temptations awaiting in France…..the food, history, surrounding beauty of the countryside, wonderful smells……oh, and I LOVE that song! Now who can resist? I certainly can’t! …..now replay so you can listen to the music while looking at the photos below 😉

Some memories of our trip to Paris…..to be repeated with a longer stay in France as this was just a teaser 🙂

When we arrived at Notre Dame Cathedral for a look inside, this is what we found…..A HUGE line up that wrapped itself down the street….WAY down the street. We looked at this historic building, looked at each other, and both said…”lets get some crepes instead!!!”

This is how it was when we walked through the Hall of Mirrors at the Palace of Versailles…..

The hall of mirrors...a very very crowded hall.

In my mind I’m there…..walking along the streets taking in the history around me while enjoying the still warm chocolate crepe in my hand. Mmmmmm….

Yes, I’m all for travel porn. It transports us to wonderful places…but only we can make these dreams our reality 🙂

Fall in love with it….the Louvre

….world famous and a must to see. Give yourself a few days because a few hours will never give it justice.

I have been in love with Laura Calder’s show “French Food at Home” since I saw my first episode. I’m sure you’ll agree with me, as she transports us to France through our taste buds….

Now who’s ready for that trip to France? I sure am………..plus I’m a little hungry too 😛
