Some photos of Lori and I when we visited Paris France this past summer. The city is beautiful and exactly what you’d expect from an old European city. And surprisingly it’s very modern with great transportation and ways to move people in and around the city. Our favorite part was Montmartre. Montmartre is a hill in the north of Paris, France.
Montmartre is primarily known for the white-domed Basilica of the Sacré Coeur on its summit and as a nightclub district. The other, older, church on the hill is Saint Pierre de Montmartre, which claims to be the location at which the Jesuit order of priests was founded.
Many artists had studios or worked around the community of Montmartre such as Claude Monet, Pablo Picasso and Vincent van Gogh.

Long flight but arriving at 6am has its perks. No lines anywhere and I was out of the plane and through customs super quick. Got my bag and called the hotel to check my reservation. Because I’m arriving 2 days late they dropped my reservation so no hotel for me. Do I go right to the office? Find another hotel? Luckily in my morning 0 sleep haze my coworker Kristen called and booked me a room. So now I jump into a taxi and make the hour trip to the hotel close to the champs elysees. I think I’m spelling that wrong. Fix it later. What a weird room setup too. I’ll blog about that later after I wake up.
