Paris with my sweetie

I met a sweet young kitten in Paris which is the City of Lights and Love. I took her around the famous sites including a romantic evening tour of the Eiffel Tower, one of the most recognizable monuments in the world.  Named after engineer Gustave Eiffel, who also designed the Statue of Liberty, it was built to celebrate the 100 year anniversary of the French Revolution.  It took over 2 years to build which was actually really quickly for a structure that high. It went up so fast because it was all pre-cut girders, riveted together like a giant erector set. The Tower was introduced to the public during the 1889 World’s Fair. There are 3 levels open to the public with antennas for communication above the visitor’s platforms.

We climbed as high as we could to see the entire city of Paris! My sweet kitten meowed with pleasure and licked my whiskers. I am in love!    Purrs, Gulliver

Barcelona

Do you like to read? I do, so I plan to find a Spanish sweetheart in Barcelona next April and celebrate Saint Jordi’s day with her. Like Valentine’s Day it is a romantic holiday. On April 23rd the man gives a rose to a woman as sign of love and in return, the woman gives a book as a sign for eternal love. Thousands of stands of roses and bookstalls are set up for the celebration. Around 4 million roses and 800,000 books are purchased on this day for lovers to declare their love. An interesting fact: The City of Love (Paris, France) is home to the Eiffel Tower, but the original location was supposed to be Barcelona! Barcelona is over 2,000 years old and has a lot of history to explore. I also enjoyed sunbathing on the Mediterranean coast during my trip! Purrs, Gulliver
