Paris Eye 29/30 - The sun also sets


As the sun sinks beyond Pont Alexander III, illuminating the Seine in the colours of love and romance, so I say farewell. I depart CdG at midday Paris time on Thursday, and arrive home in Sydney at 7pm Friday, Sydney time. This is a total of 31 hours. However, 8 hours of that is just *puff* in the time zones. Another 2.75 hours (and let me assure you I will be counting!!) will be spent changing planes in Singapore.

So ... just 20.25 hours in the air.

A beautiful farewell photo, Julie. It's perfect. I've so enjoyed your Paris posts, and imagined I could see you in each of the parks and bookstalls along your way.
I hope your trip home is not as grueling as it sounds. Not that I imagine it will all be *puff* but I hope you can get some sleep, and I hope you find something interesting to photograph (to make the time 'fly') in Singapore.
Luv, K

Good morning Julie,
Have just discovered your site and had to tell you how much I enjoyed looking at your photos taken in Paris, made me feel like I was right back there. It is a special place. Am also looking forward to looking at your Sydney photos, it is a great city, which I visit at least once a year to see my son.

Have a great day
Grace

Farewell?
Oh no, I was getting used to see Paris through your eyes and enjoyed it so much.

Thanks for the beautiful photos from Paris. A wonderful and unexpected precursor of my own visit there in six weeks time.

The time seemed to fly at this end and so too it must have for you. A lovely sunset over Paris and fitting farewell shot. Once again I take my hat off to you going right through in one go from Paris to Sydney. We always stay over somewhere and break the trip, but then we're wimps whereas you are tough. Hope you will show us more pics when you get home. Have a safe and uneventful journey home.

I've been busy for a few days so haven't visited ... now I find it is time to welcome you home. You certainly seem to have enjoyed your trip.

Paris in spring - I'm in awe. Of course, spring is beautiful wherever you are, but this last photo of the sunset over the Seine is evidence of the romance and beauty of this glorious city.
