France trip: Paris day 1

fresh off the plane!

I finally got around to getting all my (way too many) pictures off my camera! Let the recap begin...

We landed in Paris around noon, found our way to our hotel which was on the border of the 5th and 6th arrondissement (district) and only about a 5 minute walk from the Notre Dame. Wonderful location!

Since we were pretty jet lagged, we spend the day just walking around mainly by the river Seine and getting acquainted with our neighborhood and the beautiful city.

We also stopped in two Churches, St. Germaine des Pres (the oldest Church in Paris) and St. Sulpice (part in the DaVinci Code where Silas smashed the floor of the Church).

And of course, yummy dinner, wine and nutella crepe!
