Paris // Eiffel Tower
I went with my roommates (also know as mom and dad) over Thanksgiving. We skipped a dumb holiday to go to France. My family is the coolest.
Besides being cold all the time for walking outside everywhere, it was without a doubt the best trip of my life. Everything was just WOAH. All the monuments and art, and yeah, the food. So much wine. And even more cheese. And souffles. The coffee is great there, too.
So, I thought I'd separate posts by location, rather than date. Of course this one is the Eiffel Tower. I'd figure I'd start off with the most quintessential Paris thing first. I was so surreal seeing something like this for the first time! I'll never make fun of tourist in New York gawking at the Empire State Building ever again, because now I know how they feel! This photo below os the first time I saw the tower, which was on a separate day and completely by surprise. It was the day we arrived and I was in the escalator in the Pompidou Museum (which I affectionately called the hamster tube museum) and out of nowhere I look out and there it is! I FREAKED like a little kid. My mom said that was her favorite moment of the trip, seeing me excited like that. How precious.
The rest of these are totally artsy black and white pictures. Enjoy! I might post through out the weekend with more Parisian things, if ya don't mind ;)
I'll end this post with my most favorite Instagram selfie ever:
