Paris - July 16 & 17

From London we took the train to Paris and got in to Paris in the late afternoon. After checking into our hotel we went out to explore!

Our hotel was in an amazing location, we were just steps from the Tuileries Garden, the Louvre and  the Champs-Elysees:

After walking around for a bit, we got on our 'hop on hop off' boat to see more of the city.
First up - the Eiffel tower!

We cruised around, looking at all the buildings and getting off the boat whenever we wanted to look at something closer.

Out for a quick dinner:

The Louvre:

We didn't have enough time to go inside the Louvre, instead we admired it from the outside:

Back on the boat to the Eiffel tower:


The Eiffel tower lights up at night and twinkles for 5 minutes at 10pm every night. Of course, we could not miss that!

Waiting for the show to start:

After a very late night, we woke up early so we could make the most of our last day in Europe. It was also Michael's birthday! What a great way to celebrate!

First stop: the Notre Dame:

We walked past a bunch of beautiful buildings:

Arc de Triomphe:

And back to the Eiffel tower for a tour and to go up to the top!

Amazing views from the top:

We took one final full loop on the boat around Paris seeing all the sights and beautiful buildings. We ended our day with Michael's birthday dinner:

Creme brulee:

and a sunset walk:

We all loved Paris! It was so pretty and so fun to explore!

That ends our European adventure! Until next time!!
