We started planning our EuroTrip 2 years ago for Matt’s 30th birthday. Well the time finally came and it was the most amazing trip ever! We did 3 cities in 10 days and slept when we got back, we did not waste a moment. Here we go! PS we took 1200 pictures, I promise to give you all the highlights!
Before we left the airport!
We started on an overnight flight to Paris, let’s just say this was the worst flight we had ever been on. I have been on a few international flights in my life but this was so bad. Every 30 minutes the flight attendant would come on and let us know that we are going to experience rough air… I am not kidding. How are you suppose to sleep with that. Between both of us we got 3 hours of sleep, if you know us we would have loved a bit more but somehow we managed.
We dropped off our bags at the hotel and then starting exploring Paris. We headed to St. Chapelle, we were the only ones in the church! Stunning 🙂
We then headed down the street to Notre Dame. We decided to climb all 480 stairs to the top for breathtaking view.
Our second day we started with a full night of sleep, I felt like a new person. We headed to the Eiffel Tower to take pictures before our scheduled time to the top. Oh wait, we mixed up the days and ended up having to go twice, not a bad thing at all.
Matt went all the way to the top, all 900+ feet, I chickened out at the last minute. I don’t have a fear of heights but I do have a fear of glass elevators!
We went to the Lourve, saw the small Mona Lisa and a few others things I wished I remembered from art history.
On our third day we went to the catacombs, it’s a mile and a half underground tunnel of 6 million Persians’ bones, really interesting! We spent our second day at the Eiffel tower and then went to the Arc de Triomphe. We walked down the Champs-Elysees during a Christmas market with 12,000 other people and loved it.
We loved our time in Paris, we both would go back any day. Persians were nice and friendly, I know that sounds shocking from what you hear but we experienced nothing but friendly people. It was so easy to get around and we loved it!
