Tuesday Travels

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!

Hanging out with these guys at the top of Notre Dame Cathedral

Inside Notre Dame Cathedral

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

The Louvre
Leonardo DaVinci's "Mona Lisa" at The Louvre 

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! 


Frog Legs
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.
After a show at the Moulin Rouge. I saw more boobs that night than I ever care to see again! Holy nakedness! I mean I get it's a cabernet show but come on! How come Christina Aguillera didn't make it legit in her Moulin Rouge movie and show the sisters off?? 
At Dinner

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!
