After dinner at Hippopotamus, we walked from the Champs Elysees to the Eiffel Tower. We wanted to make it there for sunset and see it all lit up at night. I’ve seen the Eiffel tower a few times in my life, but it still moves me to walk under its arches and witness the grandeur of its metal frame illuminated under the night sky. Truly, a magical and awe-inspiring experience. I feel incredibly fortunate to have a handful of such unforgettable experiences with my family these past 2 years. Even more grateful now to share this with Grandma and Grandpa, as we’ve desired for a while to share with them our love for travel, away from the homogeneity and comfort of an all inclusive resort experience. We wanted to share with them the excitement of walking for hours to explore a new place, because for us, everything feels more tangible and alive by foot.
Below are photos of our time at the Eiffel Tower, along with a short video of its sparkling light show. Enjoy!
