I think the thing I’ve found the most amazing about my travels in the UK and in Paris is seeing the tiny pictures that were in my 9th grade history textbook come to life. Just a few years ago, those places seemed like things out of a book that I’d never get to visit. Versailles was amazing even though we didn’t have enough time to go inside and Montmartre was wonderful too. I just wish I had more time there to soak it all in.
One of the things I really wanted to do was go to Paris for a weekend and I finally made it! I went through a student tour company and we drove/ferried overnight from London and arrived Saturday morning. We went to Notre Dame, saw the Mona Lisa, and walked all around the city. Needless to say it was super tiring but totally worth it!
