Paris day 1: Discovering the city

An exciting week in Paris ahead of us. We decided to revisit the city of love, which was our destination 5 years ago for our honeymoon. This time we went with a pair of friends who have never visited the city, so we did a couple of must-sees as well as some not obvious choices for tourists. But of course, the first day was devoted only to grasping the spirit of the city by walking to and fro. Because of my condition, I sometimes had to pass on certain attractions and stay in countless cafes or parks while the rest went sightseeing, but that was fine too - I had a possibility to have a look at the details.
Our first spot to see was l'Arc de Triomph, from where we took Avenue des Champs-Élysées to reach the centre of Paris with Louvre and numerous palaces (there were so many of them I somehow lost track - anyway - we didn't pass by all of them).



When we reached Roue de Paris we didn't think long. Five minutes later we could marvel at the roofs of Paris from a comfy Paris eye.

After the ride we found ourselves just in front of the Louvre square from where we moved to the Pont des Arts which is also known as a Love Bridge full of emblems of infinite bond and happiness - padlocks with names of the lovers.

It was already a bit late so we headed to a restaurant to try some cuisses de grenouilles (frog legs). After that I was a bit too tired to continue, so I let Radek and friends see the Eiffel Tower and watched photos later. Lovely as usual.
