Sisk Family European Vacation: Paris, Day 3 – Arc de Triomphe...

October 19, 2011
Believe it or not, my vacation photos are slowly but surely coming to an end. The Arc de Triomphe was our last stop in Paris. Leaving the Eiffel Tower, we had just a few hours before our train back to London…so, we jumped the metro and went up to street level for long enough to take a few photos and see a street performer in passing. That’s all I’ll say…because 1) that’s all I have to say about that – you can certainly click HERE for more information on the Arc de Triomphe, and 2) I got very little sleep last night. I may have a couple more photos from...

Sisk Family European Vacation: Paris, Day 3 – The Catacombs...

October 12, 2011
Our third and final day in Paris was a busy one…and we started it by visiting the Catacombs. It opens at 10:30 am and can only hold 200 people at any given time. We arrived at approximately 10:45 am to an incredible line.

As I understand it, Paris’s population rapidly increased between the 10th and 12th centuries. Some of the cemeteries became overcrowded and because of their location...

Sisk Family European Vacation: Paris, Day 1 – Versailles Part 1...

September 28, 2011
Yesterday, I shared the first part of our day in Paris (if you missed it, click here). After grabbing a bite to eat, we decided to take the train to Chateau de Versailles. The train ride is relatively short but it’s a bit of a walk from the train station. Luckily, it was a beautiful fall day. After walking for what seemed like forever, we came upon Marie-Antoinette’s estate. I am fully aware that this is not the Palace of Versailles, but it was worth a quick look around. Of course, I got to see a few more windows and doors……and we got to see some beautiful French...
