Bradley made it to Paris! Bradley made it to Paris!
Paris is such a magical city, absolutely beautiful and perfect to walk down…but I must admit that when I first backpacked through Europe 6 years ago, I only felt homesick when I was there. I decided that I wouldn’t go back to Paris until I went with someone I love, so of course I was happy with visiting with Brad!
We had the most unbelievable Parisian flat in Saint Germaine. It was on the sixth floor, with a huge terrace, and a complete view of the Eiffel Tower! I’m still trying to figure out how much it’ll cost me to buy this place!
I went to the grocery store so that we would have a well stoked fridge on our arrival, and after fetching him from the airport, we gorged ourselves on French cheeses/meats/bread/wines until it was time for our excursion of the night! No better way to start off a Paris trip than a trip to the top of the Eiffel Tower!
The views of the Eiffel Tower are spectacular from the ground, and spectacular from the second and top floors as well. The top floor is an open air room where you can buy expensive glasses of champagne (we didn’t), and look over the ledges at a 360 view of the city below (we did). I couldn’t think of a better way to start our portion of the trip together.
On the next post, we visit The Louvre and venture around the city some more!
