Swedish Love Affair has turned into French Love Affair during the last couple of days! I know. Still, I can’t help to share my Parisian experience with my readers, so here’s one of the highlights again.
Many of you have told me to climb up the Triumphal Arch no matter what, and so we did on our first night in Paris!

Long way up! At least we could do it for free, since we're citizens of EU under 25

    I just have to share this, because it always makes me smile: did you know that Napoleon originally wanted to build a statue of a giant elephant in the place where l’Arc de Triomphe now stands? It’s true! What a different place Paris would be if there was a giant elephant at the end of the Champs-Elysées :)
