    I very much enjoyed being on your stroll with you today! The church was lovely despite needing a little cleaning. I like when you capture everyday life in flowers, businesses and interesting sites. Climbing to the moon on the subway stairs was an unexpected treat.

    The subway stairs art– love it! A real encouragement to keep climbing.

    I wonder why some people and places enjoy finding ways to make things just a little nicer, more interesting and more fun. At the same time, making improvements and enhancements never even cross the mind of other folks or places. Probably lots of reasons.

    Thank You Linda! We just make reservations for June 2023 and we are staying in the area you last mentioned with a view of Notre Dame. We are planning to get a loadable Metro card and wanted to know if you guys ever used the Navigo Easy? I read the ability to buy 10 Metro tickets (paper) is no longer available. Thanks again!

      Martin, we use a regular Navigo card which we load every year on the first day of each month. The 10-ticket carnet is still available though they vow that it’s being phased out. You can buy a 5-day ticket (just one) but you have to really hold on to it. I don’t know the particulars of a Navigo Easy. Sorry!

    I love the churches in Europe. They are so peaceful and beautiful, reverent and inspiring. Thank you for sharing this today. Your entire stroll photos are delightful. Beauty everywhere if you just notice it, and you did!

    The stained glass looked more like photos in that church. And it certainly needs some cleaning. As to the history while sipping…it’s so hard to truly grasp the 1300’s we’re right where you were. That doesn’t seem fathomable! Adored the subway steps!!
