Day 66 .. First day in Paris

I think we may have over did it a bit today, talk about Paris in a day !!!! We walked from our flat near the Pompidou Centre down to the Arc de Triomphe, then across to the Eiffel Tower & back home again, about 16 kilns by the map or over 21,000 steps by the apple health app !!

This was a getting to know the place day, we went through the Palace, past the Louvre pyramid, up the Champ Elysees to the Arc de Triumph, just really strolling.  Once we spotted the Eiffel Tower we had to go there & catch the lift up to the 2nd floor, wow, what a view, awesome.  We did not go right to the top as far to many people waiting. Paris certainly has heaps to see & do …. We have 5 more days ….
