The place I have been waiting for all of my life.
05.07.2013 - 08.07.2013
So my entire life I have been dreaming of one place to visit, and that place is Paris. I have dreamed about going to Paris my whole life, not only because it’s one of the best fashion cities in all of the world and I have a mild obsession with all things fashion, but because it is one of the most beautiful places ever!!!
The best trip of my life began on July fifth when I took British airways flight 332 at 6:50 a.m. departing from London, England. After one hour and fifteen minutes of torture later (344km), at 9:05a.m. Paris time, I arrived in Paris, France! The flight was a great price! I got a deal so it only coast about $110 dollars Canadian.
There was an amazing hotel that was just 1km from the airport, Novatel Paris Charles De Gaulle. As soon as I checked in and got all my stuff ready for my three nights stay I took a cab straight to the city where I rented a bike to get me around. Naturally the first site that I wanted to see was the Eiffel Tower. Which was just as amazing and big as I expected it to be. For about $18.00 I got to go up the Eiffel tower and see the view that many citizens of Paris take for granted every day. The most magical thing happened too, just as Mr.I had told me the tower lit up at night and became even more beautiful to see. The Eiffel tower, though amazing, was not the only land site that I wanted to see, on my second day in Paris I went to visit the Arc de Triomphe, and learned some pretty cool things about it. Like engraved on the inside and at the top of the arch are all of the names of the generals and wars fought. And that the entire structure was made to honor all who fought in the war. It is amazing how many sites I have heard about and think look amazing but have such strong meanings that I have yet to learn. I spent the remainder of my time in Paris on Rue de Passy, shopping my heart away, and the little money I had left. As well as Mustard Street where I was told the best cafes and restaurants were. But unfortunately the trip of my dreams had to come to an end only three short days after my arrival.
