Europe final day and return

After staying up late to pack we woke up at 6:30 and headed out to see some final few sights. 

The streets were empty and the doors of bakeries were open with the smell of fresh bread in the air. We stopped at 2 this morning because no one makes bread like the French. 

Notre dame was nearly empty, most of the people inside were staff and worshippers attending mass. It's an incredible sanctuary. I was so glad we were able to appreciate it before the crowds. I took some video of the bells announcing morning mass. I love that sound. 

Then we turned around at the hotel to get to the airport. It was a looong day of travel. We had the most fear-paralyzed traveler we've ever seen next to us on the first leg. It's not good when someone walks up to your row sobbing and asks, "you're not afraid are you?" We've basically been up for 24 hours, but are delighted to be home!
