Eiffel Tower
The most iconic landmark in Paris. Eiffel Tower remains to be the most visited paid landmark in the world. Built by Engineer Gustave Eiffel, the wrought iron lattice tower was constructed from 1887-1889 for the 1889 World Fair. At first, Parisian didn't like it but eventually grew on loving it and now it is considered to be a global cultural icon of France. 

You can't miss the Iron Lady when you're in Paris with its 300 meter height and the most popular sight seeing spots to see the Eiffel Tower are in Trocadero and Champ de Mars. These two areas are located a few meters away and is separated by River Seine. For 5 straight days (yes, everyday in Paris!) we visited this place just to adore the beauty of it. 

Day 1

Seeing the Eiffel Tower was our last agenda on our first day, and when I finally saw it up close I was in awe and I was very emotional. I even cried - it's as if I've finally seen my long time idol. The first time is always unforgettable and even if I look so tired and haggard, I allowed Mike to take a photo of me the moment I saw it. 

Trocadero
The Trocadero is located north of Seine and is right next to the Eiffel Tower making it an excellent place to see the tower.

Beyond #blessed
Trocadero is composed of several gardens and buildings built for the 1937 Universal Exhibition

The Trocadero and its famous stairs which I had been wishing to walk all my life
It was already late in the afternoon so the sun was almost down so we only had a few minutes to explore Trocadero

Day 2
In the afternoon, we visited the Champ de Mars & Trodacero on our second day. It was springtime when we went here so the gardens of Trocadero had beautiful spring flowers on display. 


Champ de Mars
Champ de Mars is located on the South bank of the Seine River just like the Eiffel Tower. Located in Paris’s 7th district, the Champ-de-Mars is a 780-meter long (2,574 feet), large public greenspace that runs along one side of the Eiffel Tower and the Military School on the other.

Activities like picnics, marathons, concerts, exhibitions are held here
But during our visit, the area where people usually do their picnic was closed


Barricaded area on the left for picnic
Some green areas were open though, but it was too cold to spend hours sitting here
So instead we did a little photo session
The Eiffel Tower is always a beautiful backdrop
Hey you, Handsome!
At last, a picture of both of us!
Moments like this will be remembered forever!

Day 3
Again, we visited it on our third day right after our tour at the Palace of Versailles. Stopped at Champ de Mars and then walked our way going to Trocadero where I ordered French crepe and sat at one of the benches there. Eating crepe while staring at the Eiffel Tower had been on my bucket list. 

Day 3 of seeing this beauty
I don't think I will ever get tired of taking photos with you!
And I think he agrees with me too!
It's so sunny but yet it was very cold
Spring and Eiffel Tower make a nice combo!
Taken by your beauty!
Loving my #GSunnies
After our quick picture taking at the Champ de Mars walked going to Trocadero
Yay! French crepe!
Been wanting to do this!
I love you both πŸ’‹
Stayed here until sundown again. Day 3 #OOTD

Stunning!
Last look before we leave
Day 4
Since we've been visiting the tower in the afternoon, on our fourth day we decided to visit it first thing in the morning. 

Morning in Trocadero on our 4th day
This particular day was cloudy
Look, the sky isn't blue!
Nonetheless, I'm all smiles
Any day, time and season, it's beautiful. Yes?
At last, I look fresh! Since we were here first thing in the morning
For the past days, I look tired and dugyot.

If you've visited this area you'll know that it's hard to take photos with no people around. So this was a hurrah moment! Plus we found a nice stranger to take a photo of us. 
Eiffel for you!
