Unfortunately, we have had problems with our website the past few days, making updates very difficult. While the blog was on break, however, there was no rest for iglide on tour, which has made it’s way through England and onto France!
The first day in France, we made our way to Paris, where we visited the Eiffel Tower. Unfortunately, the car couldn’t make it to the top!
The Eiffel Tower is over 1,000 feet tall, and was built as the gateway arch to the 1889 World’s Fair. The iglide car was just one of the more than 7 million that will visit the landmark, one of the world’s most famous, this year alone.
While the car couldn’t climb the more than 600 stairs to the second level of the tower, we took the dry-tech box up to enjoy the view instead.
From the second level, we had an amazing view of Paris’ Champ de Mars, the park where the Eiffel Tower stands.
While we were in Paris, we were all lucky enough to meet the godfather of the iglide tour – Sascha! After leaving the tour in August, Sascha has been attending school in Paris, so it was the perfect chance to meet him.
We traded tour gifts from both our travels during our meeting at the Place de la Concorde – Paris’ largest public square.
At the end of the day, we made one last stop at the world famous Notre Dame Cathedral.
The cathedral is enormous – it can hold up to 10,000 people, and took nearly 200 years to build (1163-1365)!
The “City of Light,” as Paris is often called, is quite a beautiful city, but much too large for us to visit in only one day!
Until next time,
