Paris visit

                                       We enjoyed our Silver Wedding Anniversary trip to Paris.





       Didn't want to go to museums this time and I wanted to visit the big department stores in the Boulevard  Hausseman. This is the Galeries Lafayette. A fantastic dome.


It's such a beautiful building.


We went to the basement Food Hall and wow - what a feast for the eyes. These are a few of the delicious cakes on offer.


 Some hams and sausages.



And of course, the famous Poilane bread.



We went on a tour of the area around our hotel with our friend's son, who lives in Paris. In one of the lovely glass topped arcades I found this shop selling biscuits - can't remember its name!


 This is the famous Fauchon shop in the Place de Madeleine. They sell macarons and I bought some to try - delicious!

For our Anniversary dinner we went back to a lovely restaurant we'd found on our honeymoon. It's called 'Julien' and now belongs to the famous 'Brasserie Flo'chain.


It's Art Deco style inside, amd is now a listed building.


Here we are enjoying our meal.


Altogether a very happy time.

Wow! What a fabulous time you have, and you have some wonderful photos here too. I'm most envious, I'd love to visit Paris properly (I had a very brief trip there about 14 years ago).

Congratulations on 25 years!
