River Cruising in France: From Paris to Normandy

Follow

Paris, France

It’s been an incredible week, but soon it’s time to head back to Paris. I watch from the ship’s deck as the French capital slowly comes into view. The sun begins to set as we reach the city outskirts, and soon it is dark.

Eventually, in the distance, I can see the tip of twinkling lights. Then we round a bend in the river, and the Eiffel Tower comes into view. Tall and grand, she is a sight to remember.
