Our second visit to Paris and consequently we only covered a few places we hadn't seen and concentrated on relaxing. It's a city that just keeps on giving and the Latin Quarter is a fantastic area to stay in.

Notre Dame Cathedral. The Louvre, in the event that you hadn't recognised it. The museum is staggering in size and personally I recommend that everyone should see it prior to expiring. Amazing exhibitions inside that defy description and I honestly felt that taking photo's inside would do it an injustice.

And of course our hosts with cheesy forced smiles on the cruise. The ride up the Eiffel Tower had beads of perspiration popping out of me left, right and centre.
