OMG It’s the Eiffel Tower! 天吶是艾菲爾鐵塔!

Processed with Rookie

來到巴黎的第一個早晨,天一亮便迫不及待的從床上跳起來,想用一頓美好的早餐迎接這星期的開始。

在這裡我想要小小的宣布一下,我是個不折不扣的早餐狂,無法忍受不吃早餐的日子!

在陽光下享受一頓美好的早餐,對我而言,是一天最完美的開始。

所以,不吃早餐的人,快點開始吃早餐吧~~~~~~~!

這間Cafe就位於我們飯店對面。在巴黎,找咖啡廳是件相當容易的事,每條街上、每個轉角,只要稍微注意就會發現咖啡廳。

我們點了兩份”巴黎人”早餐,法式早餐其實都很簡單,可頌、法國麵包、現榨果汁、果醬、咖啡,雖然不多樣,卻讓人更能細細品嚐每樣食物的味道,慢慢的,享受一個早晨的開始。

We started our week in Paris with a parisian breakfast. Here I’d like to make a little announcement, I’m breakfast addicted, I love LOVE eating breakfast, in fact i shall die without breakfast. A wonderful breakfast in the sun is just simply the best way to kick off the day. So, for people out there who skips breakfast, START EATING BREAKFAST!

This lovely cafe was just across our hotel. In Paris, there’s never a problem of finding a cafe, it’s literally everywhere. However, we decided to go with the “Parisian Breakfast” menu, which came very simple with croissant, french bread, jam, fresh juice, and a cup of coffee.

我們坐在Cafe外的座位,感受早晨溫煦的陽光,看著街上來往的人群(我的特殊嗜好),讓巴黎的風從髮絲間吹過。

在大多數的亞洲國家,或許沒有那麼多的戶外座位,有時太陽太大,有時下著雨; 交通太過噪雜,空氣中太多污染。但在法國,幾乎每間餐廳都有戶外的座位,而且往往看起來比室內座位舒適許多。人們坐在戶外用餐的畫面彷彿也成了一幅畫。

這樣的兩份早餐花了我們22歐元(約台幣880),也讓我們在第一天就了解到,巴黎真的很貴阿~~~~~~

從我們的Hotel到艾菲爾鐵塔,距離並不遠,走路大約20分鐘,因此我們並沒有搭地鐵。

在鮮少高樓大廈的巴黎,艾菲爾鐵塔十分顯眼。一步一步往前,鐵塔也就能清楚看見。真的會越走越興奮,天吶不就是傳說中的艾菲爾鐵塔嗎!

We were sitting outside of the cafe, enjoying the morning sun, watching people on the streets (as I somehow like to), and feeling the wind breezing through. In most of the Asian country, sitting outside of a restaurant is not common, it’s either too hot, too cold,or too much traffic and pollution. So, though the price of this meal wasn’t looking so lovely (€22), I was still willing to pay. (And also learned the price of living in Paris is not so friendly)

Our hotel was within walking distance to the Eiffel Tower, therefore we decided to take a walk instead of riding the metro.  I was getting more and more excited every single steps as we were approaching the tower, you can just see it so clearly from a distance, IT’S THE EIFFEL TOWER!

中午的巴黎,太陽真的很大,很熱,有人居然為了降溫跑去抱路燈。

Its was a super sunny day, way too sunny I’d say, somebody actually ended up hugging  a street lamp to cool himself down.

對我而言,艾菲爾鐵塔一直都是一種夢想的象徵。當我們走近鐵塔,並且從更多不同的角度看見它時,一切也更加不可思議。

若跨過塞納河,到鐵塔的另一邊,便可以看到一座巨大的噴水池,噴水池後方是個平(Jardins du Trocadero),這裡被說是拍攝艾菲爾鐵塔的最佳拍攝地點,能夠清楚看見被草地圍繞的噴水池、艾菲爾鐵塔、以及巴黎蔚藍的天空。

Eiffel Tower is always a symbol of a dream, I mean, who doesn’t love it? As we walk around the tower, and seeing it from more different angles, it just gets more and more magical. If you cross the river to the other side of the tower, Jardins du Trocadero, where is said to be the best place to take pictures of Eiffel tower, You’ll see this giant water fountain surrounded by lovely green grass, with Eiffel tower and crystal blue sky as background. It’s a wonderful picture.

(最酷的是有人居然這樣躺在地上拍照……)

艾菲爾鐵塔下總是有許多條長長的隊伍,排著等著上去觀景的人們。

想上艾菲爾鐵塔有兩種選擇,其一是到第二層,另一是到最頂端(如下圖)。如果想上鐵塔觀景,我會建議先在網路上定好票,否則可能就要排進我人生中看過最長的隊伍…..

網路上事先定票相當方便,但一定要提早訂,如果當天訂很可能會遇到已售完的情況。

(You can actually see people taking pictures like this….. lol)

There is always a huge line underneath Eiffel Tower, which is for accessing to the top. There’s two options, you can go up to the 2nd floor, or to the top floor (as the image below shows). I’d suggest to book a ticket online previously, which is more convenient and also save up your time for waiting in the longest line I’ve seen in my life. Also, it’s recommended to book the ticket in advance, otherwise there’s a big chance the ticket might be sold out.
