PARIS: June 2011
When we talked about going to Europe I can't tell you how many people told us "don't waste your time going to Paris, everyone is so rude there and it's so dirty." Thank God I didn't listen to those people! I mean seriously what part of town were they in?! Paris was beyond beautiful!! Yeah sure the French can be a little rude and snotty, but I secretly I loved that about them!

So I knew the Eiffel Tower was going to be amazing. But I had no idea how awesome it really was. I could have sat in the park and watched it all night. I'm so not one of those "gushy" girls that can sit and watch a sunset and say oh its so breathtaking blah blah blah. But no joke this thing made me get pretty darn close to gushy and girly! It was that pretty!
Can you have too many pictures in front of the Eiffel Tower? Cause if you can then we probably came dangerously close to hitting that limit.
The Arc de Triomphe
Yep 284 stairs to the top of the Arc de Triomphe.
No one told me I should have cross-trained for this trip. I seriously considered asking for an oxygen mask at the top of this thing.
The Venus de Milo
Palace of Versaille
The Gardens at the Palace of Versaille
OH the FOOD! I love French food! But French food in
French I mean France....even better!
Wine, wine, and more wine. Even their table wines can put ours to shame.
Jason with his Cappuccino...cracks me up watching him drink out of those little cups!
Oh just taking a shot or ten at a bar.
And last but not least a video of when the Tower lights up and well, sparkles I guess, every hour .
(So a few of these photos I have to give credit to Karen. Thank you for sending my some of your awesome pics!)
And that was Paris. Next Tuesday.....Rome!
