Paris and Giverny

A few days in France and an opportunity to visit somewhere I've always wanted to see - Monet's garden.

This isn't Monet's garden - we stayed in Pigalle on this visit. It's a new part of Paris for me so it was fun to explore a little.

Dinner at a Lebanese restaurant...as you do in Paris.

 ...and breakfast at the local Le Pain Quotidien.

On by train to Giverny which is a lovely little village:

You can find Monet's grave in the churchyard:

The church is very lovely too:ย

Dinner at a local restaurant gave me a chance to witness the best ever Gallic shrug:
