Riding the Chunnel to Paris. This is a bit of the French country-side.
First stop of the day is the Louvre. I'm guessing no matter what time of the year, it's always busy.
It's a slow and steady process, but you almost have to fight your way through a crowd to get close to the Mona Lisa.
Mission accomplished, I got a closer picture of the Mona Lisa. It's true what they say, it does look smaller when you actually see it up close.
Almost walked past this till I realized what it was. What can I say? I was on a mission and had lots to do. Venus de Milo
It was just a day trip to Paris and this was next on my list. The Arc de Triomphe, built in honour of those who died in the French Revolutionary and Napoleonic wars.
One of the few times I actually posed for a photograph.
From the top of the Arc de Triomphe you can see the Eiffel Tower.
Many of the roads surrounding it lead directly to the Arc de Triomphe
One last photo as I look towards the Eiffel Tower. Guess where my next stop is?
On my walk to the Eiffel Tower I stopped to get some authentic French Pastries.
Getting closer to the Eiffel Tower I'm impressed by the size. Photos do not do it justice.
The Eiffel Tower is a popular place. The queue is almost a three hour wait. At least you don't have to leave the line to find a trinket to purchase.
On my way up, I take one last look.
On top of the Eiffel Tower, I take a look out over the city. Such an impressive view.
It's tradition to enjoy a glass of champagne on top of the Eiffel Tower. So I had to order one.
Cheers from the top of the Eiffel Tower!
