On September 10th, Nuno, the girls and I, boarded a plane headed for Paris, France. Come along with me...I'll tell you all about it!
After lunch, we decided to go for a walk to explore our surroundings. We stayed in the Marais area of Paris, in the 4th Arrondisement, only a few minutes walk from the Seine river. We walked all along the Seine,and eventually, all the way to the Eiffel Tower. Here are some photos from our walk...
This was my first peek at the Eiffel Tower, in the distance!
This is Pont des Arts bridge. Hundreds of padlocks adorn the fence on this bridge. They are placed here by tourists and lovers who write their names on the locks and throw away the key, as a pledge of love to one another!
|Look at the full moon! You will notice the sky getting darker and darker, the further we go on our walk.|

The Eiffel Tower's twinkling light show takes place every hour, after it gets dark. It really is a sight to behold!
Up close and personal
I will never forget my first encounter with the Eiffel Tower. It took my breath away! The full moon next to it, made it even more special!
|I heart Paris!|
After taking in the magnificence of the Eiffel Tower, we took a cab back to our neighbourhood. This Crepe stand was just outside our studio. You will find these crepe stands all over Paris. Anita and Annabel enjoyed one filled with Nutella!
Goodnight moon, goodnight stars, goodnight Eiffel Tower!
I have so many more pics to share with you, so I will have to do this in several posts. Hope you enjoyed following us on our first day! More to follow soon!
