A l'arc de triompe

Au restaurant


Brie market, arc de Triomphe, champs élysées, louvre and notre dame... Phew!

First we went to a French market to see what they sold in a traditional town. We then went to the Arc de Triomphe to have a look over the champs élysées where we had to climb many stairs. After that we went along the champs élysées looking in the shops whlist continuing down to the louvre where we saw the Mona Lisa and could have a look about at the galleries. After that we went to the Notre Dame where we saw people praying and could have a look about. Finally we went to a restaurant and had the best food we had had the whole trip!

Sacré coeur, seine river cruise and the Eiffel Tower!

Waking up after an 11 hour coach journey to Paris (give or take) was difficult, however definitely worth it! We started off by heading to the Sacre Coeur, a massive Church on a hill, during a service which was a religious experience personally. After having a look around and eating some delicious crépes, we headed over to the river Seine and took a historic boat trip around it! finally, after learning about the notre dâme etc, we headed over to the eiffel tower and managed to get a really good picture of Paris!

A la tour Eiffel


The journey so far

After an early start and a long journey, and also many stop offs, we arrived in Paris! Before we got to the hotel, we visited the Montparnasse tower, it was the tallest skyscraper in Paris until 2011, it was nice to see the beautiful view from the top. Then we got back to the hotel and went down for tea, it was lovely! After that we went back up to the room and got some sleep, ready for the day ahead!

Tour Montparnasse... wow what an amazing view of Paris!

The Montparnasse Tower is 210 metres  high and it takes 38 seconds in the lift to get from the ground floor to the 56th floor!  The view of Paris was just stunning and finally the sun was shining for us!!  After a late dinner we have finally settled in our rooms and getting some well deserved rest before tomorrow's adventures  Bonne nuit!

Paris 2015.... here we come!

After many months of waiting we are finally on our way to Paris!  It is raining but we won't let that dampen our spirits.  First visit is Tour Montparnasse to hopefully see Paris in all her glory!
