- Eiffel Tower

- Seine River
Our list of things we had left to do in Paris wasn’t impossible, but it was Sunday and a lot of places were closed. We started our day with a nice brunch at a café by our hotel. We had crepes, omelets, and baguettes. I loved how the locals walked around with pain (bread) and baguettes like it was an accessory. One of the things I enjoyed doing in Paris was people watching. There were so many happy and fabulously dressed people to see and the Europeans just loved to sing in the streets.After brunch, we walked towards the Seine River and discovered the Love Lock Bridge. We took pictures and celebrated all the love that was in the air. Couples kissing here, a group of friends putting a lock on the bridge over there and then it was us, trying to recreate Beyonce’s XO video…(don’t ask).
The Eiffel Tower was marvelous. There were a lot of people who had the same picnic plan as us, so it was quite crowded with tourists everywhere. Everyone was in such great spirits as we ate Nutella crepes and took pictures with Miss Eiffel.
We proceeded to walk along the Seine River which was close by. The walk was serene and eye-opening. Parisienne people love their bottles of wine. I watched as the locals walked, jogged and played along the river, a bit envious that Paris was a place they could call home, while I had a clicking clock whose time was almost up. I too found peace on the Seine.
That night, we had dinner at a cute restaurant by our hotel. The waiter was hilarious. He was super charming and allowed us to drink our own bottles of wine. We laughed the night away, embracing French culture to its fullest.
After dinner, we decided to take the bus back to the Eiffel Tower. It was definitely more gorgeous at night. We had a blast, although we encountered rats in the area…yuck.
The clock stroke one, which meant the final light show of the night was on the way and let me just say, it was enchanting. We sang Drunk in Love by Beyonce as the locals sang with us. We also made videos of our wacky wine night until it got too late and was getting too creepy. Two guys started following us by the Seine so we naturally ran for our lives. Once we got back to a safe zone, we took a cab back to the hotel. Oh quelle nuit!
