We had a nice room service breakfast of fresh fruit, hard boiled egg (which seems like the only egg they cook here), and cereal. I mainly ate the large fruit plate that had the best strawberries I had in awhile. They were smaller then what you would find in a grocery store and tasted just like they had come from the garden. I just can’t get over what better quality their food is here in
Our first stop was Printemps, which was the large and very high end shopping mall. It contained three buildings with a floor each devoted to one area. There was a men’s building with 6 floors of designer fashion. The Women’s building contained 8 floors of fashion. One of which was an entire floor all for shoes. This isn’t your normal payless shoe; this was all the hottest designers stuff. It was incredible. The middle building was devoted to house good items. I feel in love with the many china plate settings and crystal collections. There were also two floors for children clothes and we found some of the cutest outfits for the kids but way too over or budget to purchase. At the top of the building was a little café and terrace that looked over the city. This was my first view of the Eiffel tower. It was a gorgeous view and my excitement peeked.
Christa we took these next two pictures for you, you would have died and gone to heaven!
After Prinptemps we went to a more affordable store were I bought a couple of tops and a skirt to wear that night for our anniversary dinner at the Eiffel tower. After the shopping we took a tour bus around town getting off at the Notre Dame. We didn’t have time to walk inside. I was in need of a nap. But we did enjoy walking around the grounds eating the best chocolate ice cream ever. Oh my goodness, it was soooo good!!!!
Supposedly this is the number one place in the world for car accidents. It was crazy to watch the cars drive around it cutting in front of each other as they got on and off the round about. There was no lane markings and people were driving so fast. We didn't see an accident but kept excepting one every 15 minutes, it was crazy!
We then headed back to the hotel and took a short nap before getting ready for the Eiffel tower. We had made reservations with a tour group to have dinner on the Eiffel tower followed by a river cruise and then a show at the Moulin Rouge.
The Eiffel tower was beautiful. We ate with our group on the first floor. We skipped out on the coffee and walked up to the second floor before having to return to meet our tour group for the cruise. It was a hike to make it to the second floor. My legs hurt and I was exhausted. I couldn’t imagine hiking to the top. I am so out of shape. Unfortunately, even if we had time to make it to the top, the stairs leading up were closed and the price to take the elevator was more then Jared wanted to pay for, so we never made it all the way up.
This is us on the second floor after climbing 340 steep steps.
The river cruise was next and amazing as well. We learned a little bit about the history of
By the time we made it to the Moulin Rouge, I was exhausted and had a horrible head ache. I didn’t think I would be able to make it till 2 am when we were scheduled to return back to our hotel. I had trouble with the idea of viewing the show before coming to
