Hi there! So, as most you might know, I went to Paris on 4th June and came back on 8th. I promised that I will do a post about my trip to Paris, so here it is. This is going to be a long post, so I’ll just get straight into it.
Monday 4th June
Journey to accommodation
On Monday, we left the school at 8:00 am and had numerous stops throughout the way. We got to Paris at 4:45 pm. So our journey took around 7 hours. We didn’t have time to do anything else so we are dinner, got our room’s keycards and went to sleep. Nothing interesting really. I was actually supposed that I didn’t sleep that much, but maybe I was just excited.
Tuesday 5th June
Tuesday was the day for the Eiffel Tower, [boat ride name], some shopping, and a walk to some kind of castle I think. I’m not really sure why we went, we just got to the “castle” and got on the coach back to the accommodation for dinner.
Ok, so first when we arrived to central Paris, we went on the Eiffel Tower. Honestly, it was much bigger than I thought it would be. When we arrived, it was kind of foggy so we couldn’t even see the top of it. It wasn’t the best weather, but it could have been worse so I’m not mad. Once we got the tickets we went onto a lift to the first level (or whatever it’s called), we walked around the whole thing with some friends, and then I went into a gift shop and bought two mugs, and a magnet. It cost me around €20. (I didn’t take pictures of the gifts, but I might do that in another post as this post is very long anyway)
After that, we went to the second level, and we just walked around again. We also went into a special effects studio thing. We walked on a green screen and it looked like we were climbing the actually tower. So that was cool, and then we saw this cool floor window so we stood on it and some boys started jumping and it was annoying. -_- It looked cool so I took a picture but it doesn’t look that cool on the picture.
Then we had a choice of going down in the legit or use the stairs. I would have probably used the stairs but my friend’s knee was hurting so I stayed with her to get the lift.
Once we got down I think we ate lunch and went to the [boat name] next. It wasn’t as exciting as the Eiffel Tower, but it was really nice to just sit down and enjoy the view from a different angle.
Then, when we got off the coach, we looked at the [square thing] for a bit and went to some shops if we wanted to. We then grouped up again and went for that long walk, and got onto the coach again.
When I got home after the whole trip, I actually found out from my dad that there was a person associated with ISIS around the place we were, and they found them the next day. I was wondering why there was a SWAT team and police everywhere…
Wednesday 6th June
On Wednesday it wasn’t that exciting. We went to a palace and some gardens, so there isn’t much explanation to do.
It was very fancy outside and inside. Apparently when this was built, they used the gold to symbolise their wealth. I can’t remember more about it though.
Garden (one of 3 -I think)
Thursday 7th June
And last, but certainly not least, Disneyland!! I was definetly than most excited for this, as I’ve never been to Disneyland before.
Walt Disney Studios Park
So we went there first as it closed at 6pm. We walked around, I bought an adorable stitch and my friend bought an Incredibles t-shirt and some more stuff as she’s obsessed with it. We actually walked behind them as well, but my friend was too scared to say hi.
We then went on a Studio Tram Tour, which showed us some cool special effects, like actually setting a truck on fire then having a massive waterfall to cool it down again. It was amazing! You could actually feel the heat from the explosion as well.
Me and my friend didn’t really want to go on fast or crazy rides, so we just walked around for a bit.
We then went to the actual Disneyland Park, and I was honestly amazed.
When we walked it we just kind of walked around, got our food vouchers, and another friend joined as she didn’t want to go on fast rides either.
We went around and bought stuff in the shops. We also went into the castle and I loved it!
And just before going on a Dumbo ride, we met Alladin and he said “Hey Girls” to us and it was so cool!
We then went back to the main area and waited for the parade. I have more pictures and also videos but I’m just going to show a few of the coolest ones.
One of the prince’s winked at my friend as well, and its still so funny as she has a picture of it.
The parade was so cool and I really enjoyed it. We then grouped up again and waited for the fireworks for some time.
Everything was just so detailed and dedicated to the movies, and even the pizza we ate was in a star shape!
I honestly loved it, and I wouldn’t want to spend that time anywhere else. We did actually have a little fall out like 15 minutes before the fireworks started, but everything went back to normal just in time. Well, I wasn’t really involved in it, but we just needed to talk about some stuff. But I’m glad everything turned out well.
Friday 8th June
We left the accommodation at around 9:30am and we arrived at school at around 6:30pm. I was exhausted so I slept on the coach a lot, as we got back late from Disneyland.
I hope you enjoyed reading my post. Let me know if you would like to see a post about what I bought.
I hope you had a great day, or night, wherever you’re from. 🙂
Love Wiki, going into the unknown…
P.S I decided that I will post tags/awards on Thursdays, and normal posts on Tuesdays, as I think that the weekend should be dedicated more to my family and myself. I’m just experimenting with my schedules so I know which ones work best for me. I hope you don’t mind 🙂
