Rolling through my pictures from my past travels in Europe, I stumbled upon this picture which made me laugh as it has a little story attached to it.

My wife and I whilst in Paris arrived at our 1 star hotel, checked in, and with our backpacks on our backs and front, was guided to the lift that would take us to our rooms. When the door to the lift opened, we saw the smallest lift in the world, my wife and I starred blankly at each other and than the hotel receptionist, he also had a blank look as if he was saying, “Well you can go to your room now”. So I shrugged my shoulders while looking at my wife and walked in, she was giggling at me as I couldn’t even fit in with my bags on. I had to reverse out backwards and the hotel receptionist said “Leave your bag here and go up, I will send up your bags, than your wife. Normally I would say ladies first to allow my wife to go, but I thought I’d better check if this contraption went anywhere safe. It did and after the lift door opened, I reversed into a room that was the similar size to the lift with a door on either side, one was our room and the other for another hotel guest. I opened the door to our room and had a quick peek when suddenly I heard a “ding” from the lift and the doors opened and it was my bag, I said “Hello bag, glad you could make it” and threw it into the room. Another minute had passed, “ding”, my wife’s bags had arrived. I was now hoping my wife arrived next, or perhaps an exotic French maid to clean our room. Finally the last “ding” sound from the lift and it was my wonderful wife with a big smile on her face. We laughed and went inside our room which we could gladly both fit into. I love traveling in Europe.

Hello again fans,

You now have me bringing out all my European photos, for now I chose a few that contain the Eiffel Tower in Paris, the city of lights. These were taken back in 2007.
