With only one full day in Paris, Beth and I knew we had to make the most of our time in the fabulous city, so we decided to jam it full with activities that included visiting the Eiffel Tower (natch) and the Catacombs. Knowing it would be a long day full of photo-tastic things, I had charged my phone through the night, only to find THAT MY CHARGER HAD BROKEN :O and that my phone had been on 1% for the whole night – I know, TRAGEDY! Luckily I had my camera to shoot the day’s fun festivities.
We started our day by fuelling ourselves with a Parisian breakfast of pain au chocolat and baguettes swathed in butter. I’m not a breakfast person, but it was soooo good.
We then set off for the day in search of the Eiffel Tower.
And made our way up to the very top – squealing with excitement and terror the whole time.
When we finally reached the top, it was like being on top of the world. Above the clouds, the sun shone fiercely and brightly (making it a little hard to take a picture without getting blinded hahaha), where we stood in awe and couldn’t stop grinning and smiling.
After a while at the top, we started making our descent downwards, back to the gloom but splendour of the city.
We stopped for a hearty lunch.
Then made our way to the infamous Catacombs… where we waited in line for what felt like FOREVER.
The Catacombs were nowhere near as scary or terrifying as I had expected them to be, but they were insanely fascinating, interesting and a whole lot of fun.
By the time we reached our hostel, we were ready for bed and crashed out for the night…
…or so we thought…
