Bucket List – Paris, France

paris, eiffel tower, city, bucket list, lynne st. jamesToday’s stop on my travel bucket list is Paris, France. I have idolized it since I was young and watched movies like Gigi, An American in Paris, and then of course there was Sabrina!  I’ve dreamed of walking up the Champs Elysees, lourve, paris, museum, mona lisa, bucket list, lynne st. jameswatching the traffic circle the Arc de Triompe, seeing the Eiffel Tower and of course spending hours or days wandering through the Lourve.

Besides where to spend time in Paris the decision would be when to go.  Paris in spring time sounds the most romantic to me, but I’ve heard summer is the best time to go.

Have you been to Paris?  Is it on your bucket list?  Next week, we’re taking an “Alaskan Cruise.”
