Deuxième jour à paris

12th of March 2019 – The Eiffel-tower, food & rain

After an almost sleepless night we finally woke up at around 7 am. I was hoping to be able to sleep in on this mini vacation but I guess my mind and body had other plans. We were well excited to finally have a great buffet breakfast awaiting us. But we were unfortunately very surprised when all we got was 1 coffee, a glas of juice, 1/2 a baguette and 3 sweet pastries with only jam and butter as toppings. Was this a normal french breakfast? Disappointed after spending a large amount of money at this hotel with a breakfast included, we had no choice but to settle with what we got.

It was only 10 am so we decided to take a morning walk around the block. The sun was shining yet again to our delight and we were thrilled to see spring arriving. We were both starving after an hour so we sat down at a little cafe for an early lunch.

Back at the hotel I rested my feet before we decided to take an adventure to the Eiffel-tower – 6 km away. A mission to accomplish, especially at 7 months pregnant. We took our map as help and walked alongside the Seine. Halfway there we had to take a break and warm up since the wind was especially strong today. A coffee later we made our last effort to the infamous landmark.

A sight to see for sure – such a beautiful landmark to visit. Even though the top floor was closed that day, we enjoyed the view from below. After some admiration we found a restaurant – ‘Cafe Gustave‘ – where we enjoyed a well earned dinner before we took a taxi back to our hotel.

London Eye

This time last week we were at the airport about to go trough security. I looked back the last week and thought about what I did exactly a week ago. It’s weird how time flies by before your eyes, and the next second you blink everything has changed. We try to enjoy the moment, but somehow time doesn’t want us to and it runs through our fingers.

Last Tuesday we had a great sightseeing day in London. We slept in, had breakfast and then around noon we went for a walk through Hyde park, as per usual. At the end we took a taxi to London Eye. We exchanged our tickets and waited a while before we went on the 30 minute ride. There was a lot of wind that day but still such a beautiful day. The sun was shinning and we got to see all of London from above.

The fairies wheel went slow, enough time to enjoy the view and take lots of pictures. I actually wanted to wait till the sun was setting, but we went on a little bit too early, but it was still so pretty.

Day 2: Alpsee

The day started off after finally sleeping in till half past ten. After a nice breakfast set at the table my day went on a bit slower then everyone else. I was so tired and we didn’t make our way out before noon. The day went to Alpsee where king Ludwig II had his castles. A total tourist attraction, something I hate, but I got the chance to test out my new lens for my camera and we had a nice meal.
