We arrived in Paris, France with high hopes and imagination. Not knowing what adventures laid before us, we were ever excited to see everything. But after arriving at our host Stephanie's flat I had to take a nap for a few hours.
After waking from my slumber, our first tourist spot was the Arc de Triomphe. Built in the early 1800's, it was a dedication for those who fought in the French Revolutionary and Napoleonic Wars.
Of course the Eiffel Tower was next!
We were constantly getting lost. But I guess that's part of the experience of being in Paris and not speaking French.
Our host Stephanie (who we met thru couchsurfing.org) introduced us to her friends later that night and we had fun conversing with the locals. everyone was super cool and nice.
the world famous Louvre Museum. It houses many of the most famous paintings and art including the Mona Lisa.
