Have you guys been watching the Olympics? I’m sorry to say that I’m a little obsessed. My favorites are women’s gymnastics (duh!) and women’s swimming. I mean how insane is Katie Ledecky? While I watching her match over the weekend she beat her own world record by almost a body length. AND she’s only 19! That’s crazy! At 19 I was worried about finding a fake ID so I could get into the club that weekend. Not breaking world records. It’s so inspiring to watch.
One of the best views of Paris is definietly on top of the Arc de Triomphe. That’s if you can make it up all those stairs. I don’t think it’d be so bad if it weren’t so windy but I definietly think it’s worth the trip. It’s amazingly beautiful.
The Eiffel Tower was just a 10 minute walk from the apartment we were staying. It was so fun to walk over there with a croissant and just people watch. It reminded me a lot of the Washington Monument with all the angles and view points.
Pro tip: If you ever want to see the sunset on top of Arc De Triomphe with views of the Eiffel Tower, get your spot early! There were tons of people crowded in this little corner all trying to take pics of the Eiffel Tower. For some reason I didn’t expect the crowd.
As I was taking this image, there were some teenagers next to me. Two girls were taking pictures of their friend on their phones. I couldn’t understand what they were saying but they kept on going “ohhhh” after every phrase, picture and pose. Even if you can’t understand them, “ohhh’s” and “ahhh’s” are pretty funny in any language.
Missed the light show by 10 seconds!!
Guess what? I went to Paris over the weekend! It was awesome.
This is of Paris Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas. Taken right before sunrise, there were plenty of people stumbling out of the casinos. They had a lot to say to me, some of which was really funny. Oh to be sober, when others aren’t. HAHA
