View of Paris from Eiffel Tower

A tale of mixed feelings. I can't really say we got the typical experience of French culture with shopping, food and romance; to be honest the first few moments were consumed with the smell of piss, and total anxiety over the prospect of being "helped" when we were leaving the train station. I started off not trusting to have a good time and it was unnecessary to be so worried. Eventually we found the home we were borrowing and the bike tour on the first night was truly something to remember. #FatTyerTours I will rave about those guys until everyone I know experiences a new city through the eyes of a cyclist guided by someone who had to take a bloody hard test to qualify as a tour leader. They each add their own flare and its the best way to see the city and hear about its history. Shout out to Louie who actually grew up in Auckland, and Sam who showed us around London a couple days earlier.
