A Visual Tour of Anna and the French Kiss in France

Some scenery in books is so breathtaking that you wish you could see it in real life. Well, fortunately with Anna and the French Kiss, you CAN see it in real life.

Like I said in my review, I went to France about two years ago, and it was absolutely amazing. So, I took quotes from Anna and the French Kiss and paired them with my photos of the actual places. I hope you enjoy them!

“The art museum is called the Louvre and it’s shaped like a pyramid and the Mona Lisa lives there along with that statue of the woman missing her arms.”

“We turn a corner and – there it is – the River Seine. The lights of the city bob in the ripples of the water.”

“And there, as we’re turning our attention back toward the river, I see it. Notre Dame. I recognize it from the photographs, of course. But if St-Etienne is a cathedral then it is nothing, NOTHING compared to Notre Dame.”

    Oh my gosh, this makes me SO homesick for Paris! I’ve decided that it’s my true hometown. There’s nowhere like it in the entire world. Love your pictures!

    What an awesome post! Thanks so much for sharing your pictures. I’m planning a trip to Paris with my sisters in about 18 months and I was planning on visiting all of the places that St. Claire and Anna went to in Anna and the French Kiss. This makes me even more excited for that trip.
