After two days of non-stop activities including an evening tour at the Orsay, a baguette class at La Cuisine Paris, a treasure hunt in the Louvre which was followed by another adventure with Kasia's Mom at the Fragonard perfume museum, and drinks at Verjus with Lindsey, Daisy and Kasia (plus her mom and hubby) our third day in Paris was devoted to just taking in Paris with no agenda.
We were traveling with one of my husband's friends who had not been to Paris except for a very brief business trip, so we wanted to spend some time showing him the sights. The weather was cloudy and cool which made for incredible photos. Mr. Misadventures decided to play around with HDR and I think the results are pretty amazing.

We took the Batobus which is a boat service on the Seine River with 7 stops. Unlike most of the bateaux mouches, you can hop on and hop off. Here is a shot from the boat of one of the many beautiful bridges.
Approaching Notre Dame…
Later on land near the Louvre…
Wandering the streets
Wandering in the Marais. This is the Hôtel de Sully is a hôtel particulier, or private mansion open to the public.
After brief showers, we return to the Westin to dry off and were treated to this magnificent view.
When I looked at my pedometer at the end of the day it showed we had walked for twelve miles! It was a wonderful day with no plans that were simply filled with taking in Paris.
What about you? When you are traveling do you ever plan days with no plans at all?
