After two amazing days in London, we hopped aboard the Chunnel and zipped straight to Paris! Once again, we had amazing luck with a wonderful Air BnB listing and ended up in a cute apartment in Bastille. Our host recommended a cafe down the street, so we immediately headed that way for dinner.
It did not disappoint.
Our bellies full, we grabbed our gear and started out towards- what else?- the Eiffel Tower.
Our friend Allie had given us directions to the tower, and we wanted to see it all lit up at night.
I knew it would be beautiful, but I really did not expect it to be this amazing! What an incredible piece of architecture. We enjoyed a romantic moment, and let it sink in that we were in PARIS by the FREAKING EIFFEL TOWER!!!
Romance quickly vanished once the heavens opened. We were caught in rain like we've never seen before.
What can I say? We're Californians.
We ran, laughing and squeezing the water out of our hair and clothes, back to the train and got back to the apartment. The next day was a perfect, sunny day to explore the city!
Oh, Paris. How I wish we had more time to spend with you! But, alas, after two magical evenings, we bid you adieu and hopped a flight for ... VENICE! Part 5 coming soon!
