Paris-City Of Lights

I just can't believe that it has been three months since we took trip to Paris. It has definitely been one of the highlights of our life. We saw the obvious, the Eiffel Tower, Champs-Élysées, the outside of the Louvre and Notre Dame Cathedral as well as Place de la Concorde in between and I must say Paris is a beautiful city.

Firstly, the Eiffel Tower which stands as the worldwide symbol of Paris. Eiffel tower is impressive, bigger than I thought to be fair and you just have to struggle to get up there. Yes, there are queues with no apparent beginning or end but it is just too good to miss out on. The views at each stage are mindblowing and worth getting over at any case. At night, it lights up every hour, twinkles and whispers in your ear, "Paris is Magic".

We ventured out to take "Paris By Night" to see the 3 major landmarks of Paris, The Arc de Triomphe, Champs-Élysées and Place de la Concorde, and it was worth the price. The Champs-Elysees was buzzing and Arc de Triomphe looks stunning in the Night. The eternal flame below the Arc burns more brightly at night and this adds to the spectical. The roundabout around the monument is awesome to see.

Paris is just splendid, certainly a beautiful city that is packed full of impressive architecture, monuments and sculptures. Yes now I understand the reason why Paris is the most visited city in the world.

Life is not about the number of years that you live but the amount of life you experience in those years.
