Paris part deux April 13, 2010

Filed under: Europe,Traveling — leanbean @ 5:19 pm

Joe and I ended up having a three day weekend and decided to head off to Paris.  We did the things we didn’t get to do the first time – go to the top of the Eiffel Tower, visit Versailles, go to Chanel.  The best part of the whole trip came in the form of Mickey, Aerosmith and Rollercoasters – we went to Euro Disney!  People said things like, “it’s not fun when you’re old” or “you need to take kids to enjoy it” but we had a blast!  It could be because the last time I went I was eight and don’t really remember anything except the It’s a Small World ride.

Here are the pictures:

From the time to buying a ticket to getting to the top of the Eiffel tower it took over two and a half hours.  The first elevator takes you to the second viewing deck.  Once on the second deck, you stand in line to get to the top which took an additional 45 minutes.  At the top Joe convinced me it was a good idea to spend 20 euro on champagne because as he stated “when else will we be at the top of the Eiffel tower”.

We didn’t go in to Versailles because we were kind of tired and the line was long.  After waiting so long for the Eiffel tower, we didn’t feel like waiting to walk into a couple of rooms.

Just some randoms:
