Paree! What is the first thing that comes to mind when someone says Paris? The Eiffel Tower of course! Pictures do not do a justice for the Eiffel Tower. It is a breathtaking site that everyone MUST see. You must be prepared to go to Paris. Learn a few French words before you go, the French will appreciate your attempt at their language. If you only speak English to them, you won’t get very far in this city. “Hommes” is the mens bathroom and “Dames” is the girls. Most bathrooms charge. In fact, everything in Paris charges. This is an expensive getaway but well worth it! Buy a weekend pass for the Metro. Jump on the Metro to go see famous Louvre museum. In the Louvre you will find the oringal Mona Lisa, Vinus del Milo, Winged Victory and more! Notre-Dame, St. Chapelle, Arc de Triomphe are just a few of the many attractions in Paris. Don’t leave without eating cheese and drinking wine. Don’t worry about staying in a nice hostel while you’re in Paris just make sure you’re close to a Metro stop.
