Hey mes petits dreamers,
Today I discovered la Grande Roue because why should kids have all the fun?
A Ferris wheel 60 meters high that entertains both adults and kids on rue de Rivoli. The wheel was built for the millennium celebrations and was supposed to stay at the Place de la Concorde for only one year but
was dismantled in 2002 when Marcel Campion, the owner, refused a judge’s order to have the wheel taken down.
After that, the wheel was re-erected in the UK in 2003 and 2004, and La Grande Roue came back to Paris in 2007.
It’s not only beautiful from down below but if you’re patient enough to wait in line you can also see an amazing view over Paris from above.
I’m not – so I didn’t. Maybe another day 😉
Still getting lost in the right direction.
