Stroll Along the Seine River in Paris


Some time ago I've written about a trip to Paris. Completing my story , below I’ve quoted the story of a walk along the river Seine in Paris.

It was nice weather and walking along the Seine River was not a bad experience. It was also a good way to look around the city in slow motion, see the cursing ships passing and try to guess along which part the Princess of Wales, Lady Diana really died. It was fun! Actually, we were from the Notre Dame du Paris treading our way to reach the Musée del'Armée. I don't remember exactly the route we took but being new to the city, everything I saw was interesting. Below are some of the selected views while strolling along the River Seine in Paris.

Before that, some trivia first. I learned that the name "Seine" (la sen), which is the name of the river came from the Latin word "Seuana" which construed to mean "sacred river". Many contested this origin of the river's name though. River Seine expands itself to 776 kilometers or 486 miles, yes, that's thelenthsof the Seine River in Paris. Within Paris, there are 37 rivers and a dozen or so outside the capital.

Enjoy !

Paris? So you were 'just around the corner"from where I live :).

And what about the food and drinks? Did you visit some famous bistro or café, like the Café the Flore ( the one made famous by Sartre and de Beauvoir)?
