Getting on the metro and after picking up my Paris Pass, the 1st stop was Eiffel tower( like there can be any other thing one would wanna see first in Paris ;) ). As I came out of the Trocadero metro station, the sight of the Eiffel tower hit me like a punch to the gut, well a rather good kind. It took me a whole minute to form a intelligent sentence.
Second Floor of The Eiffel Tower and i am feeling so lucky that i can't describe it in my words that what kind of experience it was when u actually on the Eiffel Tower and feel out of this world.
At around 16:30 hrs, I finally reached the legendary place of Paris. No prizes for guessing. It was the Eiffel Tower. I had goose bumps as I approached closer & was not able to keep my eyes away from this mystical tower. I had Arc De Triomphe, Sainte Garnier palace & Sacre Cour cathedral also in my list, which eventually got dropped after seeing this magnificent beauty. I decided to watch the different hues of sunset on Eiffel tower, treat myself with a glass of wine & soothe my eyes with its sparkling light post sunset. This was one of the most beautiful evenings I had in Europe & I was in absolute love with this man made creativity.
I took a cup of hot chocolate, and sipped it sitting on the stairs, staring at the tower. This has become a ritual for me now. I asked a few strangers to take some pictures of mine with the tower so that I would have some nice memories.
