Oui Oui Paris

We took a bus day trip to Paris that worked out perfectly as Paris is only about four hours from our house here in Germany.  We arrived at about 8:00 in the morning and watched the city come alive.  Our first stop was a the Louvre.  We didn’t go inside because that likely would have taken over our whole day.  The outside of the Louvre is still beautiful as are the courtyards surrounding it.

We then headed to one of the bridges covered in love locks.  Thousands upon thousands of locks are there.

Nothing for this trip was planned, the only sight that I had to see before we left Paris was, of course, the Eifel Tower.  When we arrived at the tower, it really felt like we were in some kind of movie.  It didn’t feel like we were actually there! I am so glad we made it to Paris.

For the photo below we stood there for probably a whole minute or two waiting for a woman to take our picture.  It was so awkward and hilarious to stand there kissing his cheek for so long.  This was actually the last picture of many that the woman took.  You can tell that I am laughing.

After thoroughly enjoying the tower, we walked around and rode a hop on hop off bus to see the rest of Paris, including Notre Dame.

The photo below is the same place we were standing in the very first photo.  Look at all of the people! I’m glad we got to see it early when no one was there.

After walking miles and miles and miles, we decided to head back to the Eifel Tower one last time.

Paris was never top on my list, but I am very happy we made a day trip out of it.  We were able to see all of the main sights and get a good feel for the biggest French city.
