What are your first memories of Paris?
|Some of the postcards that I purchased in Paris in 1981.|
Looking through the scrapbook that I mentioned in yesterday's post brought back lots of good memories of my first backpacking trip to Europe with my brother Jon in 1981.
|Notes on the back of the postcards.|
Here are some of the notes that I wrote to myself on the back of the postcards:
Saw the Eiffel Tower on June 2, our first day in Paris. Took a nap there due to jet lag.
Went to Monmartre on June 2, 30, and July 1. Very beautiful to look out over the city of Paris. Especially at dusk.
Walked along the Seine River on June 3. This was after we saw the outside of the Louvre. [I suspect that cost saving measures kept us from buying tickets to visit the Louvre, but it's 30 years later and I still haven't been inside.]
A very beautiful city.
