FINALLY I kicked myself in the butt, and uploaded my Paris pictures, so you guys can see how amazing Paris is.
First of let me say that Paris is AMAZING! Everything is just 10 x more beautiful there. When I left the plane I could already smell it was going to be an amazing trip.
CAUTION: Picture overload
I had the window seat... SCORE
We arrived to Paris a little late, so we didn't really see much, but what we saw was amazing. Sacré-Cœur Basilica is what this amazing roman catholic church is called and it is the highest point in Paris. From here you can look out on the beautiful city.
I am busy taking pictures
Then I decided to be weird on the way home to our hotel lol
We ended the night with Sushi back on our hotel. What a great first impression I got of Paris that day
Next morning we were ready for what was to come... and we started the morning BRILLIANT! French croissants, I mean what can be better than this? seriously?
Notre Dame... So awesome to see, but oh boy what a queue to get in.
I signed my name in the guest book
Walking around in Paris.
My cousin talked about these trees before we got to Paris, so of course we had to find them so she could have an updated picture with one of the trees :D So pretty she is
I had to get a pictures as well. I look like I need an energy drink lol
Then my cousin fell in love with a tree... awww so romantic lol
Of course we had to see arc de Triomphe. My cousin talked me into getting up in it, so we could see the city. You know the Alicia keys song -This girl is on fire?... Well I sang my thighs are on fire... OMFG those stairs up. It's the devils work I tell you.
Then we walked to the Eiffel tower, and then we saw this just married couple (I think) so I just had to play a photographer... better pictures of the couple here
The biggest moment was when I could see the Eiffel tower complete... It's cool just seeing the top sticking up, but seeing this was just incredible.
I can't remember what was so funny, but I absolutely love this picture. I have to frame this when I move.
Then if it wasn't hard enough to climb Arc de Triomphe, my cousin wanted to take the stairs up in the Eiffel tower. OMFG at the point I was crying on the inside lol. I told her that I wanted to punch her bwahahah. WHen we finally got up it was amazing.
It was a bit rainy when we were in Paris, but then it stopped. Look how beautiful Paris is after a bit of rain. And what are the odds, that you travel to Paris, get up in the eiffel tower and this is what you see.
We decided to take a guided tour bus home. That way we could see Paris and still relax. At the point our legs hurt so freaking bad
Starting a new day with starbucks coffee and hot chocolate is AMAZING. Oh and my name was changed to Miriam for the day lol. That is actually my cousin's middle name. Her name of the day was Hayley (her name is Helene), and that used to be my nickname when I was younger... What are the odds?
Of course we had to buy macaroons, cause when in Paris why not??? We found this little french chocolate shop and decided to go in. The owner was the cutest little happy thing. She couldn't speak english at all, so I had to try and speak french with her (I know hardly anything), but we all took it with a smile and laughed. Oh and yay we ended up with what we wanted.
We took the tour bus again, because we are rockstars like that.
Then I had to pee so freaking bad so we got off the bus, and found a place to get something to drink and a toilet lol. This was the view from where we sat and enjoyed a cola. Freaking Notre Dame... right there.
Afterward we went to see the catacombs. After waiting for an hour to get in, this was what we saw. I personally thought it was a creepy experience. To use dead people like that, is just insane and creepy. When we got up from there we were really greatfull for our lives, each other and for what we have.
We ended our night and Paris trip with a Onerepublic concert. Here we are waiting for the show to start. I was so tired at that point.
It was a great concert... I was so hyper when the music started, and even though my legs were so freaking sore I was jumping around and screaming/singing.
A little video I shot at the concert
And another video
after the show we got back to our hotel. We had to leave for the airport at 4am.
All in all it was an amazing girls trip with my cousin, we saw a lot of things and we got to girl bond again.
Paris is a wonderful city and it is truly a place you have to visit. I am so happy that I got to experience it.
Have a great week
