A visit to Paris is on everyone’s bucket list. After the terrorist attacks in 2014 the people of Paris did not falter, that great city beloved of visitors and romantics worldwide remains strong and beautiful.
The iconic Tour Eiffel, usually vibrant with sparkling lights at night, went dark reflecting the grief of France but, two days later, the Tour Eiffel re-opened, lit defiantly in the tricolor of France. The people walked with purpose and hope.
