My train pulled in to Gare de Lyon and I made my way to Costa Coffee where Robin and Amy were waiting. After hugs, laughter, and chai tea, we dropped my things off at the hotel and we started off for the Eiffel Tower. We picked up some mini quiches, a huge bottle of water, and the most beautiful basket of cherries for a picnic on the lawn by the Eiffel. So Parisian, I know.
After lunch, we headed over to l'Arc de Triomphe. For all the times I've been to Paris, I had never actually gone up to the top of l'Arc. The view was lovely, and all of the history of that place was incredible.

|No monsters in this metro|
|Who wouldn't want wedding pictures with the Arc in the background?|
|Love these girls|
|This tree is the oldest in Paris.|
|Our hotel was on Rue Cler, pretty close to where I stayed the first time I went to Paris!|
