The perfect way to say goodbye to Paris is at the top of La Tour Eiffel. A gorgeous view, a tasty glass of bubbly from the Champagne Bar, what more could you ask for?
It was my last day in Paris after a week of art, culture and delicious food. I took a moment to reflect on my time spent in this beautiful city. Paris has always been a magical place for me. Not just because of the architecture, galleries and shopping. I love the people and culture experienced with each visit.
Often I had heard people say that the French are rude. This is not the case from my experience. Okay, they are not as carefree as the Italians, Spanish or Greeks, but the French are relaxed and know how to enjoy life all the same.
So despite the crisp afternoon breeze, the view from the summit of La Tour Eiffel was breathtaking. It is the perfect spot to stand and look out over the city. As you tune out the chatter of people around you, the city spread out below captivates your attention.
Looking down on the city brought back memories as I picked out all the places I had visited. I remembered the sights, sounds and tastes as a wave of nostalgia washed over me. It felt more like leaving home than a city that I had visited for a week.
