Adventures in Touristing

The Sacré Cœur and Montmartre Edition


One unexpectedly warm and sunny afternoon Jess and I trekked  up to Paris's highest point, Sacré Cœur! The lawns were lovely and speckled with loungers, picnickers and bookworms! We joined them for a bit before reaching the basilica at the top.
