Notre Dame Cathedral, Love Locks and Versailles – Paris – Day 25

Today we finally saw Notre Dame Cathedral from the inside. So beautiful. It was a bit odd being inside a cathedral (while a service/mass was happening!) with such a big touristy crowd, but still a very special experience. We walked to the top of the towers which gave a wonderful view of the city, and a close up view of the gargoyles. The bells even rang while we were up there but I couldn’t see Quasimodo.

There have been so many stairs on this holiday but we haven’t fallen down any since the first day =P

Then we locked our love to a bridge and threw away the key! The process goes: (1) lock padlock anywhere you can find space on one of the love lock bridges (our lock was a lovely engagement present with the date we got engaged engraved on it) (2) kiss! (3) throw the keys into the Seine. Pretty sweet <3

Can you spot it?

Next we took the train out to Versailles to visit the chateau. Their interior decorators really took over-the-top to the next level. Shiny!
