Please excuse my obsession with Paris. Especially the Eiffel Tower. It’s just that ever since I was a little girl, I dreamed of going to Paris. I had seen so many movies and heard many stories about it and had hoped I’d go there one day, I just never thought it’d really happen. The first time my eyes saw the Eiffel was a moment I will never forget.
I was walking from my hotel to the Eiffel and I kept seeing signs that said ‘Tour Eiffel’. Being the silly American that I am, I literally thought they were referring to a tour. So I kept walking, very confused but I knew I had to be near. I mean, if they were giving a tour of the Eiffel Tower, it had to be nearby right?
Then there she was in all her glory. I looked right at it at first, but then it hit me…”that’s the Eiffel Tower!!” I exclaimed. People around me probably thought I was a total weirdo. That’s OK, I’m used to that by now.I just stood and took it all in. Being the total corny sap that I am, my eyes started to water. I didn’t care. No one was going to ruin that moment for me. Words cannot describe the magic of this city, but maybe pictures can help capture some of it.
Here I am, posing with the Eiffel on my balcony ♥
