Uni trip to Paris
This was believe it or not my first ever time to Paris and I am now just rooting to going back, a few days was just not long enough! Above is me and the girls under the Effiel tower! when we got off the metro and saw it peering above the trees we actually all screamed. I was actually amazed at what an extraordinary structure it is, I kept thinking why does London not have something as impressive. It was actually freakily coincidental when Elise (far left) said that she had never seen the Tower all lighten up at night and then just than second all the twinkly lights fluttered up and down the Eiffel Tower, it looked so magical!
We had such a fun evening we went on the carousel (pic adapted by Elise), had some scrummy crêpes and finished off the evening with some lethal cocktails!
