Weekend Trip to Paris!

This past weekend, I got to go to Paris. My roommate and I decided to fly to Paris since it was cheaper. The flight was super short and it was only around 45 minutes. One thing we didn’t realize is that if you don’t check your bag you must only have one small bag for liquids. So, we had to throw away a bunch of items. But, now we know. Once we landed, we were so excited. We got to our hotel and planned our weekend accordingly. The first stop we had to do was the Eiffel Tower. The Eiffel Tower is one monument that is even prettier in person. No pictures or videos of the Eiffel Tower didn’t do it justice. I didn’t realize that they are actually doing some construction to it. Our second stop was the Arce de Triomphe. These stops were pretty close together, so we walked to them. The Arc de Triomphe was in the middle of the roundabout which I thought was so odd. It was beautiful, but I was expecting it to be a little bit bigger! We ultimately had the best food and drinks in London. I think with every single meal I got in London I had to just get Italian food since it was just that good! One of the most memorable things that we did was go to the Louvre. The Louvre is so popular since it has Leonardo Da Vinci’s artwork of the Mona Lisa. The Mona Lisa was so pretty and it was so cool to see it in person since I have talked about it in so many previous classes. It shocked me though how big it was, I really thought it was going to be a lot smaller! We got the opportunity to also see the Notre Dame Cathedral. With that being said, it got caught on fire in April 2019, but it didn’t ruin all the building. The pandemic slowed down its rebuild of it. I thought it was so unique that we got to see it being rebuilt! Overall, if you are wanting to go to Paris I 12/10 recommend it!! I had the best time there!
