My visit to Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris
A few days ago I posted my Morocco trip blog with the Berbers desert tribe. Whilst on my flight back to the UK following that desert trek, I had to change planes at Paris CDG airport. I had eight hours stopover so I decided to take the train into the centre of Paris.
It was a misserable wet day in Paris, so different from sunny Marrakesh where I took the flight to Paris from.
The airport fast train stop in the subway station just on the banks of the River Seine. I was at the west end of Notre Dame Cathedral.
Notre Dame Cathedral is widely considered one of the finest examples of French Gothic architecture in France and is a UNESCO listed World Heritage Site. It was completed in 1345.
In 1991 a major ten year restoration program began, so the cathedral is in top form for any potential travel photographers. It was a shame that I wasn’t able to take photos under a clear sky.
Whilst I was looking around the cathedral I kept my eye out for a sighting of the famous hunchback bell-ringer Quasimodo but I never saw him!
After a mulled wine on the banks of the Seine I took the train back to CDG airport and back to the UK.
After my Moroccan desert trek and my wet day out in Paris, I was very dirty so my foster Auntie put me into the washing machine for a spin.
