Paris: Day 1

We arrived in Paris really early this morning (over an hour before sunrise!), and we made it to our hotel after a couple transfers later, exhausted.

But we rallied and walked all over the city seeing the Tuileries Gardens, Left Bank of the Seine, Rue Cler, a couple churches, Museum of Invalides and Napoleon's Tomb, the Eiffel Tower, and Grand and Petit Palaises.

Then we crashed for a nap once our roomS were available. Yes, we got upgraded thanks to Will's points to a suite with a sitting room attached to our bedroom.

We woke up and explored Notre Dame, Ile de la Cité, and Ile St. Louis. Our first dinner hit the spot: coq au vin, chicken with mushroom sauce, Bordeaux wine, and creme brulee.

It was a great first day, and I know we'll feel refreshed after a full night's sleep!
