Europe Day 11: Paris, FRANCE

27 Dec 2006

2nd day in Paris. We had a lot to see today, it's FULL ON! See my freaking sleepy face you know it was damn early in the morning. Zzzzzzz~~~~

It was so early that I couldn't even smile properly, lack of facial exercise!

Busy paris

Eiffel Tower

Once criticised as a useless and mostrous junk. The Gustave Eifeel's iconic tower eventually earned its reputation when 2 million visitors made pilgrimage to the tower the first year it was completed. The iron tower is 320m high and 7000 tonne.

Arc de Triomphe

One of the most famous monuments in Paris, commissioned in 1806 after Napoleon's stunning victory at Austerlitz. Standing over 51 m in height and 45 m wide, it is the second largest triumphal arch in existence!


The grandest boulevard running off the Arc de Triomphe, one of the most famous streets in the world. The boulevard is 2km long, popular with its cafes, theatres and luxury designer shops.

Grand Palais - a large glass exhibition hall
