Another place I visited a couple of times was L'Arc de Triomphe. What a gorgeous giant monument! The monument is covered with the names of the soldiers, dates and there is even an eternal flame and burial of a French soldier, sort of like our tomb of the unknown soldier we have in DC.
During my wanderings in Paris, I found lots of shops to explore. But my favorites were the bakeries. The baguettes and beignets (especially the chocolate filled ones) and croissants were delicious. And I had some of the best french onion soup, french fries and cheeses ever! All in all, I had a great time!
When I told some people I was going to Paris by myself, I got odd looks. The most romantic city in the world and you're going by yourself??? You bet! I decided several years ago to 'just do it' and denying myself something merely because I would do it alone was certainly not reason enough to not 'do it.' And when I tell my friends about my adventures, I know they wish they were me.
