European Shopping Trip to Paris Day 2

Don't forget our fabulous contest! See the previous post!

We had a good night's rest and today's itinerary includes a walking tour of some of the beautiful gardens and churches of Paris.

Our lovely guide, Eugenie, (middle in shearling) shared the history of Luxemburg gardens, one of my favs, and here are just a few reasons why...

Then to churches St Suplice & St Germain, the oldest church in Paris .. Almost 900 years old!

The rest of the day was spent shopping and strolling among the book and vintage sellers or "bouquiniste" on the banks of the Seine.

Could there be better scenery for shopping?

A lovely dinner in a beautiful restaurant, and these tired puppies are going sleep with smiles on our faces(but not on our feet!)



  1. wow....that looks like SO much fun! I'm counting down the days until I get to do this trip in October with the Red Shed. It's a great preview of what's to come! OH BOY!!!!!
