After I visited the Eiffel Tower, I proceeded with my ‘tourist day’ and visited a few more famous Paris sights – namely the Arc de Triomphe, Champs-Élysées, Notre Dame, and the Louvre. I even managed to lose my bearings in the 5th and 6th arrondissements and stumble upon the Luxembourg Palace and Gardens. Is it still getting lost if you end up finding more interesting stuff along the way? I swear that walking around the sidestreets is an exercise in sightseeing itself. Thank goodness for extended daylight hours – I don’t know how I would have crammed it all in otherwise! On a side note, while I was wandering around the city that day people kept stopping me and asking for directions. Even a businesswoman who spoke fluent French – and then turned out to be Australian! Was it the striped shirt? Or maybe I just looked like I knew where I was going (hahahaha). Either way, it was fun to think that even on my most touristy day I could have passed for a local.
