Hello from Paris

Sharon and I arrived in Paris today to begin celebrating our 30th birthdays. It has always been a dream of ours to visit Paris, so I guess you could call this our dream vacation.

We arrived today around 10am after a long, but uneventful flight. After hanging around the airport for about an hour waiting for our private shuttle, we found that most workers in the transportation field were on strike and our shuttle wasn't coming. On the plane we met a nice guy from New Zealand and decided to split a cab with him. The view immediately outside the airport is not so nice, but once we arrived in Paris it just kept getting better and better.

We rented a penthouse loft about 100 yards away from the Eiffel tower instead of checking into a hotel. This was the best move we could have ever made. The loft is nothing sort of spectacular with breathtaking views of the Eiffel tower and the surrounding Parisian streets.

Due to severe jet lag we weren't very mobile today, but we did manage to get out and walk around the Eiffel Tower and eat dinner at a great little restaurant called 38 Eiffel. It was our first experience with French cuisine and if all the restaurants are like 38 Eiffel, we are going to be in heaven.

It's time for bed now. We are looking forward to waking up and finding a nice place for a great French breakfast. Until then, here are a couple pictures from the balcony of our Paris loft.
