The flight was during the night and we arrived at Paris Charles de Gaulle Airport in the morning. This day, we went to visit the Louvre museum and Notre-Dame Cathedral of Paris. We stayed in Paris for a few days and after we went to visit other regions in the north of France. Paris is a beautiful city with a lot of history and I really liked visiting it.
All the photos were taken by me. The commemorative plaque is wrote in French, but it can be translated by : "In memory of the 112 residents of this house, including 40 small children deported and dead in German camps in 1942". I took this photo in front of the restaurant where we ate the first day.

Our goal was to do an ABC date challenge and “F” was Farmers Market and we had 10 bucks to spend— we got fresh peaches, two movies, a locally made lavendar lemonade , and two pairs of Earrings. Although this isn’t my first time buying from the farmers market, it’s been a long time since I photographed it . ☺️
