Lovers in Paris - Day 1 | November 9, 2014Thursday, December 11, 2014
around 2:30pm and was able to check into our hotel (Mercure Paris Centre Tour Eiffel) early and rested before we headed out for our Eiffel Tower tour and dinner.
We got ready after and hour and headed out at 4:30pm to start getting in line for the Eiffel Tower. It was a long, I mean a really long line. We stood in line for about 1 hour (it felt a lot longer)! By the time we got up to the 2nd floor of the tower, the sun had just set. It was beautiful. I couldn't believe I was standing inside the tower that Ive only ever dreamed of seeing in person! While we were up there, light started to flicker! I thought it was fireworks and John was all "Look up! The tower is blinking!" I guess it does that every hour. Pretty amazing!
