And so began the second last day of our tour, and our full day in Paris.

Back to the hotel to grab our bags and head to the airport for an overnight 11 hour flight to Paris. Hit Paris around 6:00 and was near 8:00 by the time we got to the hotel.

... mentioned that thunderstorms were supposed to be a brewing, but that was not going to deter us. Unfortunately the top top of the tower was closed, due to the significantly beautiful heat lighting going on (Brian took some incredible pics, check them out), but we still walked our way up to the second floor and took in Paris at night. The city was glistening and the backdrop of the heat lightning gave it a postcard-esque look. From the tower we made our way ...
