Paris, France

With so many pictures for each day in Europe, we wanted to tell you about where we went divided up by the city we were exploring. So, first up is Paris, France! We arrived in Paris at about 5:30am (Paris time), picked up our luggage and took the metro in to the city to find our hotel (Hotel Home Latin). After a few wrong turns, we found it and were able to lock up our luggage until we could check in to our room. In the meantime, we went exploring. We had a great brunch at a little cafe and then we followed Rick Steve's walking tour in his France 2008 book to see some of the main sights close together. One of the main ones was the Notre Dame Cathedral - this was my favorite place I visited back in 2001. The outside and inside are incredibly detailed. We explored some of the side streets close by and then headed to the Louvre and the Arc de Triomphe (so I thought at the time). We then walked around some more and eventually went to dinner. After dinner, we decided to walk off what we ate and went down to Champs-Elysees and walked all the way down it to the REAL Arc de Triomphe! :) We explored the city a little more before turning in for the night.

The next day, we woke up, had breakfast (croissant and coffee) and then went to the Army Museum which was fantastic. Napolean's Tomb was also here so we walked through it as well. It was a museum that we could have spent many hours in, but we were limited on time. We defintely recommend going there if you ever get the chance. After our museum visit, we checked out of our hotel and took a flight to our next destination...
