Bonjour Paris!!!

This morning I packed up my suitcase, loaded the bus, and departed for Paris! Ever since I was younger, one of the destinations on my bucket list was to go to the Eiffel Tower. Today, I can finally cross that off!

Once my class arrived at the Eiffel Tower, we headed straight to the line. We were told it wouldn’t take too long, but we ended up standing in line for an hour and a half. The vast amount of people provided us with entertaining ‘people watching’ opportunities. Once we made it up the elevator, onto the second floor, I looked out upon the beautiful city of Paris. On each side of the Eiffel Tower you look out onto a completely different view of the city. There is no building even close to as tall, so you really get a bird’s eye view of the entire city.

In the evening we took a cruise on the river. Our entire class got all dressed up for one last hurrah. The weather was perfect as we sat on the roof of the cruise; the only spot you should sit on the cruise. As we passed by Notre Dame the sun was just setting, making for a beautiful site. Seeing the city from the river allows you to see the many unique bridges of Paris. The coolest bridge was the “Locket” Bridget. The entire bridge is covered with locks that people put on the bridge and then throw the key into the river; a very cool tradition. Viewing Paris from the cruise did give me a completely different view of the city and I suggest doing it!

Tomorrow off to Versailles!
Bonne Nuit!
