Those that know me, knows when it comes to travel and business I’m fearless. So I told the cab driver take me towards the Eiffel Tower. On the way I saw bright lights and huge Ferris Wheel. I asked him what this area was and requested he drop me off here. It was perfect timing because as he pulled over the Eiffel Tower was in site. There it was and I was flushed with emotions! There’s this feeling that comes over you when you are moments away from checking something off of your bucket list.
I walked towards a bridge that had a direct view of this famous landmark and it was perfect. The carnival to my left, the Eiffel Tower to my right and water underneath me. The sun was setting and I am a sucker for a beautiful sunset. It was the perfect way to start my Paris exploration.
I stood on a bridge and took as many selfies as I could then I walked along the water. Making my way back towards the carnival, I stopped at a cafe for food and wifi. This moment was exactly what I envisioned. Sitting at a table on the corner, at a cafe, I sipped red wine. I took a deep breathe in and soaked up all of the awesome Paris vibes.
This was my first day in Paris and I was slightly jet lagged. I ended the night early but I knew this was the start to what was going to be an amazing experience.
What’s on your bucket list?
