So I arrived at Charles de Gaulle airport at around 7 in the morning after a long day of travelling to find out it's pouring out. And as the adventurer that I am, I refused to book a shuttle or cab because the journey is just as important as the destination, except when it's pouring out and you're exhausted with 3 bags. I complained for a few minutes, then boarded my hour long bus ride, then ran to the Metro at Opera, took a couple trains and ran through some more rain and made it to my shelter.
My first few days in Paris were rather stormy weather, and I had already learned to be cautious since my first day, when it appeared to stop raining, I went out to grab some photos and the sky just opened up and poured with such force that I ran as fast as I could back. I arrived soaked to the bone and needed to air out my camera bag for a day.
So after about 2 days the weather settled down and I figured it was time to start my adventures, and where better to start than the Eiffel Tower ? That's what everyone wants to see anyways. So I jumped the metro over to Trocadero, and it was still very cloudy out, but they were very dramatic and interesting storm clouds, and the sun would slightly break out with a light golden color every so often. So I waited for some of that soft golden light to break through to get this, my first shot of the trip of La Tour Eiffel. Enjoy.
