For my second day in Paris I decided I was going to climb things! Well not literally climb things but I was planning on climbing to Sacre Coeur and the Notre Dame towers. I'll let you in on a secret - I climbed both! Anyways, I ventured out to Sacre Coeur early in the morning since it was the farthest from my hostel but it was easy to get to on the tube. It was a beautiful day so the view was amazing from the steps let alone the top of the dome! The church itself was beautiful, not elaborate beautiful but simple beautiful. I recommend making your way out there to check it out!

After seeing Moulin Rouge, I headed over to the Opera House. Growing up with a poster of Romeo and Juliet from the Paris Opera House hanging in our house I always wandered what the building was like. It was cool to see the building but unfortunately there was a rehearsal going on so I couldn't see inside the actual Opera House.
After the Opera House I went to Notre Dame and I was starving! I found a nice little Crepe shop nearby and got a delicious Nutella and Banana Crepe! It is the best thing ever! After, I toured around inside Notre Dame and it was beautiful! I then went and stood in a half hour line to climb the towers! I have to say even though I already saw so many views of Paris climbing the tower was really cool! I was even up at the top on an hour to hear the bells go off which was startling at first!

|Mona Lisa - it is a lot smaller than you think!|
Over my two days of traveling in Paris I saw a lot that I was completely exhausted but it was worth it! Here are some other places I saw along my travels:
|The Liberty Flame|
|The Statue of Liberty|
|St. Michael's the Archangel statue|
|The Bridge of Locks|
I did have one more day in Paris but I decided to spend it outside of the city so that post to come soon!
