The Romantic Capital Of The World

So who in their right minds would take teenage kids to Paris for a supposed ‘romantic’ weekend? Yep, that’s my wife, educating said children in European culture a few years ago. Never slept for two days… I shared the hotel room with my son and he had quite a snore! So leaving aside the unavoidable traffic jams, we actually had a great time, first visiting the Musée d'Orsay and it’s great collection of Impressionist art. 

Yes here’s my son, bored out of his mind, playing on a Gameboy next to the most amazing polar bear! Ah well…

After a beautiful journey by boat along the River Seine we had our picnic at the foot of the Eifel Tower. Lovely it was.

Next day we explored the beautiful château de Versailles, where I particularly enjoyed a special meal in their outdoor restaurant. Fabulous. As we walked back towards the house the musical fountains erupted into their spectacular display. Quite moving, and a treasured memory for sure.

Mais pas pour moi!

So I was just wondering… is this the best that life can offer?

1 Corinthians 2:9 ‘No eye has seen, no ear has heard, and no mind has imagined what God has prepared for those who love him’ (NLT)
