Thing #57: Visit Paris (again)

There are big things and little things on this list of mine.  Most things are fun.  Some were intended as a challenge.  Some are intentionally very easy to complete.  Some are just plain lazy (making things out of lego, watching movies in my pyjamas…). 

Thing #57 was intended as a pretty considerable thing.  But then, voila!  I become a teacher and benefit from an entire Summer off work.  A lovely relative offers a free apartment in Paris (free), smack bang in the middle of town (free), any time my heart desires (free!).  All of which made completing this ‘thing’ very easy indeed. 

I happily flew over.  I brought Roisin and the little t city guide with me (we stuck to it almost religiously). 

Want to see some of my photos?  Yes you do!
