Here is a second entry for the travel theme roads. The Champs-Élysées is arguably the most famous street in the world. It was created in 1667 for King Louie XIV and was meant to be a visual extension of the Tuileries gardens. It runs from the famous French monument the Arc de Triomphe to the Place de la Concorde. The first photo is taken from the top of the Arc de Triomphe and the second is from ground level looking towards the Place de la Concorde and the obelisk in its center.

  1. I could use a little Paris right about now. The art, the onion soup, the pastries, the shopping…

    • What about the escargot? Yum

      • Definitely no to that! I do like mussels though.
