Crossing the River Seine on a brisk winter day with the sun shining made me feel all warm inside. It's a beautiful river with great views of stunning buildings around, and there are a lot of beautiful second hand book stalls along the river near St. Michel station.

When I visited Paris back in 2011, my first experience along the Seine was to visit all the vendors set up along the river selling their goods.

The only reason I am writing this is to mention something that flabbergasted me. While strolling along the Seine in St Germaine de Pres we noted, as we have in the past, the very nicely tended large trees planted along the river Two foot trunks. We looked at a few fallen leaves and then did a double take of these... More

Strolling along the Seine is like stepping back in time, given that it is yet fringed (thankfully) by Hausmann design.

Either way is certain to bring joy and ease.

Taking a Cruise on the River Seine cannot be missed as one can see Paris from another perspective. We passed all through the main Landmarks and after spending a hectic day around Paris we needed this relaxing hour to wind up. Should do this again, but this time at night!
