Six weeks ago today we landed in Paris, excited about our next scrappy adventure and extremely happy to be in one of my favourite cities. Our hotel, the Hotel Familia, is not far from the Notre Dame Cathedral Building History and within 10 minutes we found ourselves staring in awe at one of Paris’ architectural icons. Being so close to the cathedral it was rare that we went anywhere without getting a glimpse of the gargoyles and flying buttresses, thus resulting in me taking numerous photos at different times of day.
Australia was discovered by the English in the late 1700s and we have few buildings older than 150 years. Travelling in Europe and seeing buildings or monuments that are 700+ years old is an incredible experience for us and it is hard to imagine how builders and craftsmen achieved what they did without the technology and equipment available today.
I love the Notre Dame Cathedral, from all angles and especially when it is bathed in the golden light that a setting sun brings.
