Seine river cruise – Paris, France

Wednesday, February 2nd, 2011

If you fly to Europe why not consider going to Paris and enjoying this exciting city. Lots to see and do – but another wonderful way of seeing France is going by riverboat from Paris to Honfleur on the river Seine. You board in Paris, then slowly make your way down the river through beautiful Normandy with its romantic landscapes, passing old abbies and monasteries and typical small French villages. One of the highlights is the garden of Claude Monet, where he painted his famous waterlilies. Honfleur is on the coast opposite from England, a cute fishing village with French flair. The cruise takes one week and the food on the cruise ship is fabulous. Great way to see a different part of France a little bit off the beaten track.

Paris Trip

Wednesday, January 5th, 2011

Last winter, I booked a flight to Germany. From Germany, I took a high speed train to Paris. I stayed at the Marriott Hotel, in the middle of Paris. Climbed on the Eiffel Tower, had a magnificent view over the city. Shopping was great, and all the attractions were interesting. The most interesting was in fact the Louvre. Had a great time. Would recommend Paris to everyone.
