Photo of the Week: Illuminated

IMG_3838Paris, France

This photo was taken at the Eiffel Tower, one of the most recognizable landmarks in Paris, perhaps in the world. While we were there, we decided that it was a good idea to go up to the top of the tower.  Even though the line was long, we were not deterred, that is, until a few hours in.  Four hours later, we FINALLY made it to the observation deck.  The view was amazing, but I am not sure it was worth the wait.  

The line down was almost just as long and we didn’t make it down until midnight.  At this point we were starving because we hadn’t had dinner, so we decided to spread out a scarf and have a picnic on the grass right at the base of the Eiffel Tower.  A guy came by and try to sell us a 5 Euro bottle of champagne.  Again, for some reason we thought this was a good idea.  It was not.  

It was a long night full of bad decisions, but it was memorable.  We will never forget the night we had dinner under the Eiffel tower with a cheap bottle of champagne.

Every Monday of each week, I’ll share a photo with you from my adventures around the world and at home.  Most of my photos have little or no post processing.  If you would like to see more, please click the ‘Follow’ button.
