Paris!

So we started off with the Eiffel tower yesterday! It was very very impressive! We skipped out on lining up in the HUGE que by joining a shorter and faster moving que that took us up the stairs! We climbed the stairs all the way to the second floor. To get to the sommet we had to take the lift up! The view from the top was awesome!! You could see everywhere around Paris!! by the time we had come down, the original que we were in had quadrupled in length!!! So we were happy we got in when we did! We headed over to some building that we haven’t been able to find out the name of! And further on we walked to the arc de triumph! Was very amazing! Don’t think we have ever heard so many horns before – the traffic was in full flow and the people were crazy!! while on top of the arc we noted that the louvre was down the road. So we walked all the way to the lourve – a lot further than first thought! The louvre was huuugggee!! All of the art and sculptures were awesome!! We spent probably about 3-4hrs here and definitely didn’t see it all! We saw everything we had wanted to though, including old Mona!! We had dinner in front of the arc and a walk back to the tower we finally arrived back in our hotel at 10pm after leaving at 9!! So we were worn out!!

The next day (today) we headed off to see notre dame. Wowowowowowow!!! Absolutely beautiful!! We both loved the gargoyles and only wished we cudve seen them up close!! We then visited some other sites (don’t really know what they were!) and finally visited the pantheon. That was pretty cool! I didn’t think it was as amazing as some of the other stuff we’ve seen, but was still great to look at! Having a bit of a relax ready for tomorrow now! Catch ya! :)

    Nope our knees are still very sore!! It hurts just to stand let alone walk!! Haha! Didn’t get a selfie with her – it was hard enough to get up and see her – ppl wouldn’t move once they’d seen her so had to push and shove just to get near the front!!
    Will keep the blogs up for sure! đŸ˜‰
