Cruising along the Seine River

This panoramic postcard was sent by Thadee.  It showcases a bateaux-mouche (fly boat) cruising along the Seine River, the Notre Dame Cathedral, Pont de l' Archevêché (Archbishop's Bridge), and the buildings of Île de la Cité. 

This card reminded me of my sweet sojourn in Paris a few years ago. I remember biking with my friends along the port dela Tournelle, the wide space along the left side of the river, and stopping just about where the two people on the photo are sitting to marvel at the majestic Notre Dame Cathedral from a different perspective.

Because I miss Paris so much, I decided to rummage my treasure trove of my photos.  Look what I found!

A snapshot I took of the Île de la Cité!  Isn't it amazing?  This is why seeing the postcard felt like deja vu! Oh how I long to come back and explore every nook and cranny of the City of Lights! I could walk for hours and hours (or days)! I could just stare in awe at the marvelous architectural structures for hours. 

These stamps came with the postcard:

I sure am happy to get a stamp featuring the blessed Mother Teresa.

Wishing you happy journeys...
