Paris in Springtime

Paris in springtime has been lovely. we had some rain the first night and then the following day but it wasn't enough to spoil our fun. We had a Skip the Line tour of Eiffel Tower the first day and one for the Louvre the second day. We took the lift up to the  summit at 300m high of the Eiffel tower and had an incredible view of Paris. The nest day we visited the Notre Dame cathedral and took the tour of the Louvre, seeing Venus de Milo and the Mona Lisa. We conquered the metro and took that and the regional trains to Versailles today and saw the opulent lifestyle of France's kings in the 1600 and 1700s.
  Tomorrow we leave for 2 nights in Bayeux and we will have a bit of a rest day as we on ly have a 2 hour train ride and the afternoon free but I do plan to see the Bayeux tapestry then.
  The internet was working well today so I was able to upload some photos. I hope to do some more soon.
Hugs, Jan Mac
