Paris at Night

There is something about viewing Paris from a spot on the Seine that is just so magical. We were lucky enough to be invited to a private party that was held on a boat cruising the Seine one June night. Sean & I went out to dinner together first at a café on the Place des Vosges and then walked over to the boat area. What a great night - friends, music, drinks, dancing - the whole experience was magical. The weather cooperated for the cruise, so we were able to spend plenty of time out on the boat deck just soaking in the views of Paris. It was amazing. I highly recommend to anyone coming to visit, that on one of your last nights, you do a cruise on the Seine to see the city all lit up. It's hard during the summer as the sun doesn't fully set & things don't light up until 10:00, but it is so worth staying out late for. On nice nights, people hang out along the banks of the Seine & you can wave back & forth. The famous monuments take your breath away as you see one after another lit up so beautifully. You can really appreciate why Paris is called the City of Lights. Unfortunately my pictures didn't turn out that well - you'll just have to come see it for yourself! Your room is waiting...
