We woke up at 7:45 AM (yikes?!) and I still felt as tired as I did last night.
We drove to the train station and took a train that gets up to 350 MPH! It's the
world's fastest train! We got to Paris in 2 hours instead of the 4 or 5 it would
have taken if we drove. When we arrived in Paris it was raining but we were
still excited to be there! We got a taxi and went to our hotel room, which was super nice! After we dropped our luggage off we headed to the Eiffel tower. We took
a lift up and had a wonderful view of the city.
It was so romantic even though it was raining.
When we got to the bottom, Brian and I were getting our picture taken when all of a sudden he pulled out a light blue box from TIFFANY'S!
He got me the most gorgeous necklace of a heart
that says in cursive "I love you." all over it.
The whole experience was so perfect and amazing!
After that we went for a short walk and then hopped on a double-decker bus. The
Landens went their own way. I think they visited a few palaces. We rode all around
Paris and saw all the sights like Notre Dame, The Arc, and the Lourve! We took
lots of pictures! We went back to the hotel at 6:30 PM and got ready for a night
on the town. At 7:15 PM a taxi came and took us for a tour of Paris at night. It was beautiful, everything was lit up and glowing.
We drove to the Eiffel tower and the guide said that every hour,
on the hour the tower starts to sparkle! It was amazing when we saw it!
It was like the whole thing was covered in glitter and diamonds!
The bus arrived at the Moulin Rouge at 8:50 PM and the show started at 9:00 PM.
There were lots of topless ladies doing cheesy dances.
It was pretty funny actually.
We had some champagne but I didn't like it at all.
Kathy was opening the second bottle we got during the show and the cork popped off and flew across the room and champagne sprayed across the 3 tables around us!
It was hilarious! After the show we went back to the hotel
completely exhausted. We took showers, lounged around, and fell asleep around 2:00 AM. The Landens so far have refused to let us pay for anything,
they are far too kind.
Here are the entries from my travel journal that I kept on our trip to Germany and France.
