Paris - Part Un

Eiffel Tower

Mr. Pin Junkie and I had three days in Paris.  Paris is a beautiful city layered with centuries of history and three days wasn't enough time to see and experience it all.  Our trip started with an early train ride from Brussels to Paris.  When we arrived, we checked into our hotel which was near the Arc de Triomphe and then walked over to the Eiffel Tower.  It really is a beautiful, graceful structure.

Then we walked across the river to Notre Dame Cathedral.  Along the way, we crossed a bridge where people have left their "love locks." When couples come to Paris, they leave these locks on the bridge to symbolize their love and leave a lasting reminder of their trip to Paris.

Notre Dame was beautiful from the outside . . .

After all that walking, it was back to the hotel for a rest and a dinner of the most delicious crepes I've ever had!
