I've always been told that everyone should visit Paris, France at least once in their life, and I now fully understand why. Upon touching down in Paris after a 6 hour flight through the night, I expected to be tired and groggy. This was not at all the case, as my family and I were so very excited to be in Paris that we found ourselves to have bundles and bundles of energy. We spent our first day in Paris walking the streets and getting our bearings. We enjoyed a wonderful lunch, complete with a glass of red wine. It was not until dinnertime that our lack of sleep caught up with us. By that time, we had seen dozens of attractions and spent a good 8 hours soaking up what the city had to offer. Not bad for a first day of vacation!
