How do you sum up one of the world’s most breathtaking cities in one blog? YOU DON’T! You post multiple times! Lucky you 😉 But I promise to make this worthwhile reading, not a snooze-fest of picture after picture of the Eiffel Tower. That right there is a challenge in itself. I’ll try and limit it to 10.
“You saved the best for last” must have been termed by some traveler/writer/philosopher that visited Paris last on a worldwide tour. I have seen 5 major European cities now in the past 3 1/2 years: Dublin, Barcelona, London, Madrid and now…Paris…and I can definitely say that I saved the best for last.

First things first when landing in a major tourist-trap-of a-city: get the know the sites quickly. This helps weed out what you really want to see up close and personal (sounds a bit kinky, huh) and what you’re ok with seeing from a distance.
Perfect example right here. I have no idea what this building is. It’s old. It has a cool roof. That is the sole reason why I took a picture of it. No need to visit any further. I apologize to you building whose name I do not know.
After the best 2 1/2 hour Hop-On Hop-Off Tour (the 1 of 2 that we did), we were more excited than ever to explore the city further! And at that, I’m out!
Eiffel Tower picture count: 1, so I’m allowed to show 9 more before it’s overkill!
