We took a break from our early morning wake ups and slept in a bit today. We took off for downtown Paris and saw the Eiffel tower. It didn’t blow either one of us away. It was amazing to be there -simply for the fact that it was the Eiffel tower -but after a few minutes of looking at it, we weren’t entirely sure what to do. We took our pictures, walked around -then headed back to another stop we had found yesterday to get some souvenirs, and of course -our baguettes.
It was grey and cloudy -but we still took our obligatory photos in front of the tower.
I had read online that when going to Paris -you should dress up as nicely as possible. I think we were the only ones dressed up. Don’t get me wrong -no one was wearing sweats or baggy clothing -but there were a lot of jeans!
While it was fun to visit – I don’t understand what the big fuss is about it, to be honest. I think it has been played up so much, that I was expecting way to much from it.
But now I can say I have been there – seen that!
Hello there, big tower!
…and finally, another obligatory photo: The creepy elevator and baguette story!
It was another amazing trip -albeit fast! Seeing three countries in five days tends to make a fast paced sort of trip!
