Summer In Pair-eee

It was about this very same time in June 1998 when I visited Northern France and Paris. You could say it was an enlightening time for me- mainly vacationing by myself with a group- but ultimately being alone in another country.


I love this photo- it was so sunny there but the darkest, black clouds hung above that Chateau, which we did visit!



Here's little me under the Eiffel Tower. (I'm in black & white.)


I only have fond memories of France. I hadn't even met hubby yet here, but by the very next year I was back in Paris with him on our honeymoon!


Have fun with Throwback Thursdays at the Pinks & Blues blog...

  1. These are AWESOME, Steph!

    Isn't it strange how 10 years ago seems so far away and yet so recent at the same time?

    I can just see the excitement in your face in these shots... you were clearly having an amazing time!

    I want to go to Pair-eee!

  16. I enjoyed visiting France too, really it's a lovely country. It's the people that are not always so nice. Particularly if you don't speak French, which I don't. They are serious about their language!

    Anyway, you look adorable in short blonde hair!

  17. castles??? help i am confused....I suppose you are talking about the Notre Dame, the gothic Paris cathedral in your first picture?

    Next time, you should hop over to Belgium too and I'll show you some more castles, fortresses and cathedrals if you want! :)

  18. Regarding your comment, I visited Northern France as well as Paris. We did visit Notre Dame but that's not the one in the pic! I forgot the name!

  19. yeah, I now realise that well :p. I think the Notre Dame has flat towers and this one has peaks. I have no clue which one it is. Hmm, I am definately not an expert on Paris.

    But the invitation to Belgium remains standing though, I like to show people around.
