Next destination….to the city of love…Paris! Looking back, it was surprising how smoothly the trip went. We probably could’ve used one or two more days there as it got pretty rushed near the end but overall we had a great time and hit all the spots we wanted to.
Of course one of our first stops would be the most famous of them all…the most visited monument in the world..the Eiffel Tower! When we first saw it from far away where we stayed we were already so excited. The next day, we set out to see this amazing piece of architecture. We probably spent at least two hours there just taking pictures.
Here’s me, just casually having lunch at the top of Eiffel tower like it was no big deal. It was amazing.
It obviously wasn’t enough to see it just in the day time, so we went back again at night after we saw it blinging all the way from the top of Arc De Triomphe.
The next day we ventured out to the outskirts where there was an outlet and also Disneyland Paris. The last time I went to Disneyland was 6 years ago so it was pretty exciting to go back and relive my childhood…in such a foreign city too like Paris! Okay, I guess if there was one or two things that didn’t go well on this trip, it was that we got scammed when we were on the way back! We got held up at the station at Disneyland and we had got ticketed by these people who had just armbands…
On our last days we went around and visited the more historical and artsy stuff, including the Musée du Louvre, Versaille and the love lock bridge (all must-sees).
