2021/12/26 Going Out in Paris During a Covid Xmas 2021
π 2021-12-26 01:01 in France, Ntrips, Paris, Trips
Another year going to Paris, Air France has had much better deals in business seats for miles, so I've been going with them again. Nice 1-2-1 layout (especially during covid):


The previous year, because of covid and no vaccines, I literally didn't go out at all, or see anything. This year I was triply vaccinated, so I went out to enjoy the city again, plenty of pictures:





nice views from top of Printemps

Printemps was great to see as always:

Great to meet some of my friends for lunch while I wsa there:


Arc de triomphe:


I went to arche de la défense to check out the view and the Xmas market:












The top of the arch has a small expo each time, this time photos:



I then went to the Xmas market (remembering that it closes at 18:00 on the last day, but 20:00 on previous days). So many yummy things:











so yum

After doing the Xmas market at arche de la défense, I did the one by jardin des tuileries:

Back another day for some night pictures:



While I was in Paris, I also saw (click on the links):

  • Paris Cinematheque, Musee Melies

  • Chateau de Vaux le Vicomte

  • Monnaie de Paris (French Mint)

  • And thankfully I managed to avoid catching covid for long enough to fly home, it was a close one:
