de retour de vacances

...or: back in Germany, missing Paris!
Hey sweeties!
I didn't forget you - I am back from some days in beloved Paris ~ it was soooo awesome again. Met new friends, had fun at the Black Dog again, ran too much (5 big blisters on my feet and an overstretched left foot ~ had to stick it out with Ibuprofen and Voltaren the last 2 days), saw great new and old places, places I wanted to see since my last visit, cats, graves, bones, weeping angels and  a  street full with comicbook-stores!
So here are my impressions - a heavy pic load - you will get it splitted up in some postings ... so be curious for the next days!
Day 1/2 ~  welcoming with rain and finally: The CATacombs meets the catacombs ^^
when we arrived at Paris, it was raining -  so we decided  to buy the Metro-tickets and go to Champs-Elysees for a bit shopping (Sephora! Yay! I will do a special post about my hauls ^^) - and at the end of our shopping-tour, we reached the L'arc de Triomphe...

 The passage under the big circuit...
Impressive  masonry - They are so huge and imposing...
After a little coffee break in the near of the Eiffel tower the sun came out... and stayed for next days!

yayyyyy - sun!
After saying hello to the Eiffel tower we had a delicious dinner at "Le Suffren" - a very very good brasserie. It was so delicious and the waiter was very kind and considerate.
 I really recommend that restaurant to you, when you want to try a really French restaurant! *click here*
 a little stop by the Ile de la cité in the afternoon...
The next day we got up early to visit the catacombs of Paris... We tried to see them last year - but the waiting line was soooooooo long. And even though we were there in time last Friday, we had to wait almost one hour for getting in... but it was worth it!
 had to walk a long long way before we arrived at the ossuary...
The entrance at the ossuary....
 Stop!  This is the empire of death.
 millions of mortal remains... it was stunning!
 cliché goth pics ^^
and some graffities in the passages...
The day ended at our favourite Metal-bar, the Black Dog, with some beer and ciders ~ and we met new people there.
So - the next pic-load of the last days in Paris will coming up at the weekend - so be curious, my sweeties!
