Bonjour Paris Day 1! Part II-- The one in Champs-Élysées, Arc de Triomphe

We reached Champs de Élysées, the extremely famous high street... Famous for it's posh fashion houses, and insanely high priced clothes.

And finally, I reached the Arc de Triomphe! This is the place I dreamt of stepping my foot on when I'm successful in life since in high school 10years ago! And now I'm here.. It's an emotional affair...

Of course this visit won't complete without climbing up the Arc de Triomphe... The photo was taken while climbing up the Arch...

The view from the top of the Arc is nothing less than spectacular!
