cycling on the champs-élysées

Just a quick report to let you know my wish was granted. This evening my daughter-in-law and I went to dinner by motorcycle, then enjoyed riding around to see all the sights lit up, down the Champs-Élysées to the Arc de Triomphe, along the Seine, under the archways into the Louvre, down to Notre Dame, back around the Eiffel Tower, Musee d'Orsay, Assemblée National, l'Opéra, and so on. Yes, cycling through traffic around the Arc de Triomphe was daunting (for me, not her), but it was a cool beautiful evening!! Bonne nuit!

Hi there Pam,
I have enjoyed your Paris blog immensely. It reminded me of when I was living in London a few years back. Miss the Portobello Road flea and vintage market there!! Your shopping made me nostalgic.
I got your blog link from Korie's blog. I will be a vendor at her retreat in a couple of weeks. I'm Lynne and my blogspot is
Thanks for sharing your finds. Loved it. You are a very lucky gal to be there riding the motorcycle route!! Nice to meet you.
