Trying to orientate ourselves. Paris
First view of the eiffel tower
Rachel loves candy floss. Paris, September
Close up, it’s quite magnificent
Going up the eiffel tower before sunset.
In the lift, on the way up.
Stunning view from the 2nd floor.
Observing Parisian life.
Tower souvenirs wherever you go.
Lit up at night.
It’s only possible to realise the scope of the city from so high up.
Rachel and the tower, lit up.
Free entrance on Sunday means early queues.
Rachel’s favourite place to be =)
Rainy days are perfect for visiting the Louvre.
Raspberry macaron like only the French can do.
The sheer scale of some artworks was what impressed me most.
Escalators are necessary for getting around.
Bunny slippers. Literally.
Quick stop at Angelinas before heading to the Mona Lisa.
This room is by far the most crowded. I did get a picture of the Mona Lisa, but I thought this far more interesting.
The Louis Vuitton store on Champs-Élysées, Paris.
Rachel in front of the store’s awesome display.
Ladurée treats!! The best cakes, tarts and pastries that you’ll ever have.
Rachel’s macaron obsession.
Eating treats and live *big band* jazz at the Luxembourg gardens.
I spent hours wandering the beautiful streets.
Snapped this on the way to somewhere.
Cool sidewalk stalls.
Patience is required to find the hidden gems.
The exhib that was on.
Under construction. Palais de Tokyo.
Gorgeous exhibitions on during September.
Palais de Tokyo interior.
The Palais de Tokyo is a building dedicated to modern and contemporary art.
Art book store that’ll make you want to throw out your clothes and fill your bag with books.
Awesome interior space.

Sneaking a few photos inside before they collect my camera.
