Eiffel Tower

Where do you want to go?

Planet earth has 196 countries, all have amazing destinations to explore. My goal is to explore all seven continents and as many countries as possible. Get travel tips, recommendations and the tricks I use so you can explore planet earth cheaply!

Strategically scheduled layovers can be a quick and cheap way to explore a new city.  In this trip, I used a 14 hour layover to explore some of the typical touristy places of Paris, France.

Let’s start with the obvious, Paris in January is cold and rainy; not exactly the greatest time to visit.  It’s extremely rare that I check bags, so I was able to grab a jacket and off I went.

Paris is rich and full of history and beauty.  I would recommend spring or summer as the optimum time to visit, however flights are usually more expensive then.

This visit was a rather overcast and chilly day.  I arrived in the city center and walked to the Eiffel Tower some 2km away.

In all honesty, the weather conditions made photos fairly ugly.  I intend to make a trip back here for an overnight to properly photograph the beauty of this iron beauty.
