Day 2- Paris



Consumed- 1 chocolate croissant, cheese plate, 1 café crème, 1 orange fanta, 1 baguette with salami and butter, chicken with a curry sauce, 1 glass of rose champagne, 1 glass of red wine, 1 scoop of chocolate and 1 scoop of pistachio ice cream fromBerthellion . MMMM- jealous yet?

Today was Eiffel Tower Day and we decided to go early because we wanted to beat the crowds. There are two levels of the Eiffel Tower- and we decided to go to the tippity top. I am deathly afraid of heights and when we got to the very top- I held on for dear life. There is even a bar up there, but I lasted maybe 10 minutes clutching to the center pole and sweating, before I had enough.

There are a ton of beautiful bridges in Paris, including pedestrian only bridges. Many local Parisians will set up a picnic around sunset time and watch the sun go down. The funny thing about this bridge was there were a ton of locks in the links of the fence. If you are in love and you put a lock on the bridge then your love can never be broken. Romantic isn’t it? - only in Paris.
