Let’s start this Paris party off with one of my favourite (and deliciously cheesy) memories of the trip. It reminded me a bit of the Audrey Hepburn movie, “Funny Face” where the three main characters each head secretly to the Eiffel Tower as soon as they land in Paris.
We actually hadn’t planned on going to see the Eiffel Tower at all. It’s located in 7th Arrondissement which is not close to anything else. I was definitely a bit surprised, but excited when Andrew suggested a cab ride to the tower after dinner on Sunday.
The timing was perfect, the sun was just starting to go down while we buzzed along through the city towards the tower. When we arrived, the sky was so pretty with pinks and blues. If you’ve never seen it in person, the Eiffel Tower is really impressive and the detailed ironwork is ornate and quite feminine up close. As we crossed over the bridge to the other side of the Siene, the tower lit up for the night and hundreds of people up on the Trocadero (meant to be one of the best views of the city) started taking photos like crazy. I wonder how many photos have been taken of this famous structure??
