The Paris Anniversary Marathon Day 4: Miles 21.5-26.2
Our last walking day! (Whew!) only around 5 miles to go today, yet somehow, we walked 25,000+ steps (our second longest day). Here’s the rundown for today:
Starting at Rue de la Pompe metro station…
After exiting the Bois, we continued up Ave Foch…
So close to the end and feeling triumphant ;)
We ended our marathon with a walk down Les Champs-Elysees.
Then enjoyed a victory lunch at the very old school Paris cafe, Le Victory.
For our anniversary celebration, we booked a dinner cruise on the Seine. The evening started by taking the metro to my favorite train station in Paris: Franklin D Roosevelt.
When I lived in Paris, this train station always had a distinctive smell that just said “Paris” to me - a combination of engine oil, slightly burning rubber and very subtle perfume. I always try and travel through here at least once, so was glad to make it here on our last night.
Rather than spend the evening taking photos, we just enjoyed the views, but I couldn’t resist this shot of Paris’ Statue of Liberty with La Tour Eiffel lit up in the background.
