A Paris Memory

Of all the places I have been to in the world, Paris is by far my favorite.

Picture this…

As you’re window shopping making your way down Champs-Elysees you find yourself walking through the beautiful Tuileries Garden. You stop to get a baguette at a little stand, and you look up to see the Louvre right in front of you. After admiring its beautiful structure, you keep walking and cross a bridge and see the sun setting perfectly behind Notre Dame. The sun sets and the first Eiffel tower light show of the night can be seen above the tall buildings around you. You follow the lights and turn a corner only to be presented with this picturesque moment:

I was lying on the ground here to capture the Eiffel Tower in all its beauty, Paris, France. 

You proceed to walk underneath the tower and take a moment to appreciate the architecture of this true work of art.

Stunning if I don’t say so myself, Paris, France.

A new day turns and the sun shines bright through your window. A day to the top of the Eiffel Tower is a must. After waiting in an hour+ line you finally start making your way up the 600 steps, along with one last lift ride to get you on top of the world. A deep breath in, a long exhale out. Fascinating.

One of my favorite memories in Paris was engulfing myself in what I had heard about and seen in photos so many times in my life: The Eiffel Tower. Being able to witness it, in person, both underneath and above, is a huge check off my bucket list. Just like life, perspective is everything, I love seeing the world from all of its angles, even if it’s taking a photo lying on the dirty ground.

Literally every corner you turn in Paris you see something even more amazing than what you just witnessed. If you ever go there, give yourself at least a week to be able to see everything this city has to offer.
