The tower sparkles and my heart flutters

This time round we bundled up in our windproof jackets (you can always count on Paris weather) and headed out to Champ de Mars an hour before nightfall to watch the Eiffel slowly light up and illuminate the Paris sky. The highlight of the night was a 5 minute light show where the tower completely sparkled like a diamond. This was the moment where I thought to myself, “I’m truly here in Paris, living my dream”.

  1. Oh! How divine! Like you, we went in winter, so it was far too cold to wait around, we did catch a glimpse of it though, and it was breathtaking!

    Keep living the dream 🙂 x
