The Eiffel Tower

 On Saturday we went to the city of Paris. Our camping was right across the railway station, so we took the train to Gare de l'Est. It was about 50 minutes by train.

From Gare de l'Est we took the subway to Trocadero, which (we consider) gives you the greatest view on the Eiffel Tower. It was a bit rainy that day, but still very crowded.
 Although the lines were very long, we decided to go up of course! We stood in line for almost 2,5 hours before we could get in the elevator to go up. When buying the tickets, we were told we couldn't get all the way to the third floor. It was too crowed there, so they closed it for a while for new visitors. Too bad, we really wanted to go there.
We  were thinking of climbing our way up ourself, but our host told us it was a very long way up!
 Still, second floor is pretty high too, but we loved every minute of it!
As we were still very tired from the long day before, after we came down from the Eiffel Tower, we decided to return back to the camping and have a calm and relaxing afternoon there. We had to check out Sunday morning so we already packed our bags and put it all in the car. 

Tomorrow we will go home again. 

Thank you for the nice time in Paris!
