3/1/18 Paris, France
Well, I don’t know what to say about Paris.
After a few delays on the train from Germany, we made it to Paris Tuesday evening.
Though we lost about 2 hours of our time, we still made the most of our time by going to the Eiffel Tower and Arc de Triomphe at night, which lent itself to some cool pictures. Though I brought a tripod on the trip, I neglected to bring it out with us. I had to get creative with how I would stabilize the camera with various benches, hats and at one point my shoes. Though it was freezing, the pictures came out alright making the pain of cold concrete to my socks worth the while.
The following day, we set out at 10 AM for a very busy day of tourism.
We stopped by Notre Dame, which may be my favorite church we have visited so far, the Louvre to see some art, both famous and not so famous before we had lunch. Of all places we settled on Italian, which may have been foolish, but was still very good, and more importantly filling for the price.
Following lunch we spent some time on the Champs Élysées and shopped around for a while.
To cap our day off, we did go back to the Eiffel Tower to go to the top, and grab some more pictures. Though I am not keen on heights it was quite a view and something I am glad we did.
Overall, Paris was a really remarkable place to visit. Though it may not have the same history as Rome, or the same beauty as Venice, the city’s wide, tree lined avenues, and the cultural landmarks made it a really fun place to visit.
We’re now off to Switzerland for our final leg of Spring break. It should be a fun time.
