Bastille Day Paris

Bastille Day in France is the equivalent to the 4th of July in the US. Three years ago I was in Paris for Bastille Day and the Fireworks were the most amazing sight to be seen, therefore I was blown away with excitement when I realized I would be witnessing them for the second time. In the early evening everybody makes their way to the Eiffel Tower with blankets, baguettes, cheese, meats, and wine, yes those are the Parisian essentials. Amanda and I arrived slightly later, making it a tad bit challenging to find a seat with a good view of the tower. Opera music was sang live as we snacked on some shrimp cocktail with the view of the tower. We waited patiently as the sun began to set, lower and lower. As the sunlight began to disappear, as it stays light out very late in Paris, our eagerness began to set in. As the first firework was set off a strange feeling came across me, I was watching one of the most beautiful sites in all of the world, more extraordinary than most, spectacular in every way. Below I have posted photos that don't even begin to describe how amazing the experience truly is, everybody should see the Bastille Day Fireworks at the Eiffel Tower at least once in their lives.
