Floating Over Paris

Champs-Elysées

Champs-Elysées at night

Our original plan was to bundle up against the cold and take an evening walk up the Champs-Élysées to get some photos of the festive holiday lights and to check out the Christmas Village that sets up on the lower half of the Avenue every year.

Then margaritas got involved.
And before I knew it, there was talk of getting on this Ferris Wheel.

As much as I resisted, it seems that my friend, combined with a margarita or two, are more persuasive than I realized.

I'm afraid of heights, but as soon as we were locked into our little carriage and started moving smoothly up into the sky, it just wasn't as scary as I thought it would be. The Wheel stopped while we were at the very top, giving us time to appreciate the glittering lights and beautiful night views.

She got me to step out of my comfort zone. Thankfully.
Without her, I would never have had the chance to float over Paris.

"Hanging out" on the Champs-Élysées. Yes, we went up in that Ferris wheel. I was terrified at first, but it was totally worth it.
