Heading north from the Petit and Grand Palais’, I ended up on the Av. des Champs-Élysées. There were Christmas markets along the sides of the streets, so I checked out the stalls.
I also had my first French food (French Fries), and Cidre Chaud (Hot Cider) – quite expensive but yummmmm, and just what I needed to warm up.
The Champs-Élysées and its gardens were originally laid out in 1667 by André Le Nôtre as an extension of the Tuileries Garden. Le Nôtre planned a wide promenade between the palace and the modern Rond Point, lined with two rows of elm trees on either side, and flowerbeds in the symmetrical style of the French formal garden.
It's 2016 and this blog is so out of date! I've had many amazing trips since I started this blog over 5 years ago, that I need to spend some time updating it.
I live in Sydney Australia, so there will also be some day trip information from home.... full info
