Sightseeing tour on day 1

We also visited the Notre Dame Cathedral during the Paris trip. Its a beautiful cathedral built in 1163.

the magnificent building

hubby and I
some random photos taken outside the cathedral. There're lots of pigeons there, all of them are fat and daring!
the beautiful surroundings, this is some black and white effect
weather was nice that day, cold wind with some sunlight



After that, we went inside the cathedral, we were allowed to take photos inside so I'll post some photos of the interior.
French Gothic architecture inside, lots of sculpture and stained glass

alot of sightseeing tour buses on the street. But I didnt have the time to try.. well, perhaps next time! ^^

before checking in our hotel, we dropped by the Place de la Concorde Square to take some photos.

  5. Wah, nice new header :) All your photos are lovely, esp the huge green field. Is it late autumn/early winter? I'm sure your mind is still there although physically, you are sitting in your office here.

  13. Hi Hayley,

    Walla! I just new that Notre Dam is in Paris. If you didn't mention it in your blog, I wouldn't know. And wow! you have arranged your photos well. Now I can see more photos. Hmmm...but it seems the weather was bad, since it was cloudy and dark. Was it bad?

    I can see the camera hanging on your hubby's neck. What model is that? so nice la, white in colour some more. And the pigeons were so happy you called them. But did you give them food?

    You know, I wish we have great and beutiful cathedral in Malaysia. I think other than France, Britain has nice cathedral too. I believe it was so cozy and cooling inside right?

    The tour bus? Ahaks! I don't think we can have an open air bus here in Malaysia. We will all burn to death , by the sun, if we sit on the open air bus.

    And the green field is really nice. I'm sure i can take wonderful wedding photos with this setting.

    Oh well Hayley, I hope to read more of your vacation. Happy writing.

  15. Willie, thanks for visiting my blog again;)
    Well, the weather was fine, just that abit too cold, but overall still acceptable. That camera is Panasonic Lumix DMC GF1, its a semi SLR and the photo quality is good!
    Nope, I dint have anything to feed the pigeons, just drew their attention near :P
    Of course its cozy inside the cathedral, but can be quite stuffy if stay in there too long, due to the huge crowd.

    You have a nice day!

    Agnes, thank you! Yes, France is a good place for honeymooners ;)
