These are only a fraction of the stairs that lead up the hill to Sacre Coeur, but I hiked up every single one of them. I know I don’t have to tell you that the view is breathtaking…looking up at Sacre Coeur or looking out at the city from the top of the stairs.
Done all in white stone (probably marble) and beautifully lit, this staircase in the Louvre Museum easily could have been an M.C. Usher inspiration with its clean lines and insinuation that it does not end.
After years of being asked by various teams and months of harassment doled out by my co-ed softball team, this non-snow bunny agreed to play in this ridiculous tournament called SnoBall in South Lake Tahoe. With games limited to 25 minutes and snow almost knee deep, it is more snow than ball but it was an entertaining experience nonetheless. Besides, I got to witness some of the beauty of the area covered in snow, which I otherwise would not have seen because I avoid snow as much as possible.
If you are brave enough to climb the seemingly never-ending spiral staircase within the Arc de Triomphe, you will stumble across this wonderful sculpture. Just like the rest of Paris, in every corner and in every nook and cranny there was something interesting and beautiful to discover.
