Paris (day 1)

I accidentally posted the wrong day first...so here is my second attempt.

We arrived in Paris soon after getting off the Chunnel
to our new temporary home for the next few days,
at the Hotel Duquesne Eiffel.


We left the kids in the ample care of the Grandparents,
 and made a beeline for the door.
No...not really.  
But we were happy to have a "kid-free" break for a few days for sure.


It was right in the center of Paris,
just a couple blocks away from the Eiffel Tower.
It. was. amazing.


Here is what our room looked like inside if you are interested...


I loved these vintage photographs taken when the Eiffel Tower was first being built.


View from our hotel room balcony...


A better view from the balcony with the doors open.


Out and about in Paris...day 1.
