So to honor that monumental day, two years ago, sitting on the plane thinking what did I get myself into, here's a few photos that show that it was worth it.
Warning: I say "few" very loosely. I started looking through these photos and got a little carried away!
The first photo I took. Near the Champs Elysees.
I loved all the street markets. And nothing beats fresh flowers.
Waiting in line for the top floor of the Eiffel Tower.
Pretty incredible what a lot of time and patience will get you.
Window display and street refection off the Champs Elysees.
View from the top.
My roommate and greatest friend of the trip, Kelsey. And I. Lost in the early hours of morning near the Louvre.
Paris in springtime. Pretty lovely.
Amazing transportation system, including these bikes you can rent all over the city.
Bicycles in front of Notre Dame.
Brandon decided to join us on the left. And then there's Sam-and-or-antha, moi, Sophie/Quasi, Kels, and Karissa. My partners in crime.
Je t'aime Paris,
vous avez saisi mon coeur et ne laisserez pas aller.
