Solo Backpacking in Europe: Paris – alone and alive in the City of Love – II

As usual I woke up early, to start my day right, LOL
I ate breakfast in the hostel. It’s an eat all you can, except for the bread that the server will give you 2 breads, I think that’s enough .  And I love their cereal, the one with chocolate chips 😄

Because I really love the Louvre, I went back there to take a picture in the morning. There are still few tourist at that time. But well, the weather is still not good. Good thing I have my umbrella with me 😌

And then its time for Eiffel tower.
I really wanted to take a photo shoot of the Eiffel tower in different angles, that’s why I search where I can find the best places/spots. I think I got most of them,😊.
Each tourist spots will require a lot of walk. (So tired )

I need to go upstairs to Eiffel tower. I opt the stairs instead of the lift, because the queue is too long, besides, I’m so impatient, LOL.
For the stairs, it’s just €7, for the lift, I think it’s 12 or €15, this is for the 1st and 2nd floor.

I’m not sure how many stairs it is, but I’ll tell you it’s really really high 😄
The view from 1st and 2nd floor.

After taking the picture and wandering around, well first I need to find a restroom before going down, good thing there’s one in the shop at first floor.

Going down was a bit easier of course, but I was lost not just me, 3 of us were lost, finding the exit. We were at the machine part of Eiffel Tower, which tourists are not allowed, then someone just appear out of nowhere, and told us that it is prohibited place, and we told him that we can’t find the exit,😅..he just laughed at us, and make a call to let us out 😄

Time to go to Arc de Triomphe, I plan to go upstairs, but as I said, my feet are so tired, so I just took a picture at the center of the road.

Yeah, I know, it’s kinda irritating, but we’re not disturbing the road, are we?😂

The Place de la Concorde is just around the corner. Well, you still need to take the subway. Or if you want, you can also walk, for me, subway it is.

I went back to the hostel, to take a rest and eat something. Before going to the Louvre museum, I’m just too late though, because when I arrived at the museum, I just only have 1.5hrs to roam around.. LOL

At least, I was able to see Mona Lisa.
And was able to see all in that span of time, wahaha..(well at some point I rushed 😆)
