I've got the Paris blues!!!
I have returned from the beautiful city of Paris, and let me tell you, once you have been to this romantic city, it will never leave your soul!
This was my third trip to Paris and I still cannot get enough of it.
The amazing architecture, the jaw dropping art,
the lovely french accents, the gorgeous city scapes,
I could just go on and on, but hey why don't I just show you some photos?
The first thing my friend and I did was walk from our apt. to the Eiffel tower, she had never been to Paris before and so of course before we did anything I had to take her to this famous landmark. We opted for the experience of walking up all 686 steps!!! It was totally a challenge but we got a total sense of accomplishment when we finally got to the top of the stairs! Not to mention, great exercise! lol
You then have to take the elevator to get to the very top and at this point we were happy to get the ride up the rest of the way!
The 360 degree view is soooo beautiful at the top and the wind just whips you around like a rag doll! It is an experience that one never forgets!
This is the view of the building that we had from the window of our apt!
Isn't it beautiful?
Every morning I would throw back the curtain and just sigh with utter awe with the atmosphere and the history of Paris.
Well, that's just a little preview of my trip. I have many more photos and bits to tell you about but for now I must say au revoir. So, keep coming back to see more and later I will also be announcing my last Paris shabby chic winner. The winner will receive a little bit of Paris along with a collage, so keep your fingers crossed.
talk with you soon,
