Travel Update : Paris Day 2

We tried to cram in as much activities as possible for our final day in Paris. Starting at the La Fayette and making our way to the Tours de Notre-Dame, a beautiful old cathedral, where the Hunchback of Notre-Dame originated. Le boyfriend went up to cathedral's tower, while I took a solo tour on the hop-on-hop-off open deck bus with a bunch of lively Japanese tourists. There was so much beauty and history to absorb, right then and there, I felt like the luckiest girl in the world.

The La Fayette, by far the most beautiful shopping centre

After having mastered the subway and buss, we headed down the Champs Elysees to view the the Arc de Triomphe and finally, the Eiffel Tower. Thanks Napoleon Bonarte for commanding, two hundred years ago, that all these amazing structures be built and filling Paris with such a rich history.

Tired and hungry after a long day we headed to get some food, I mean wine, we went to get wine. We went for a wine tasting at the O'Chateau wine bar, tried some amazing vino and left to find our way back to the train station, whilst being distracted by the awesome ad posters in the subway.
