Paris, just like everywhere else on this trip, was just simply AMAZING!!
I'm going to start you out on a little funny note. Kelsey, Tayler, and I had this wonderful idea to stay the night in the airport because we had an early flight. We hear of people doing it all the time..it couldn't be that bad right? Well, wrong...It was a little past miserable, but hey at least we can say we did it! Ha. So also the adventure getting there was a little more difficult than we had planned.
We met around 8 and went to eat dinner. We found this yummy place where I got a crispy chicken sandwich and french fries...and the waiter spoke loved that we were from Kentucky and said he loved the show "The Voice" and Blake Shelton and he said I like the music, country music, but not the dancing.. a little weird. So dinner was great, and here's where it went downhill. We had it all planned out on what metro and what trains to take to get to the airport to prevent ourselves from having to pay about 30 euros for a taxi. So we get to the train station, after sitting for about 20 minutes and every single person has left on the previous train, that the next one for our stop doesn't come until 5:35 in the morning..so we suddenly freaked out thinking about what we were going to do, when then they announce the station we were in is about to close.. you better believe we high-tailed it out of there. We then found the closest metro station and tried to get as close to the airport as we could to then find a taxi to take us the rest of the way.. it was crazy and I'm sure you can see us now running around almost in panic mode. We were all just laughing it off and enjoying the adventure. So we then get to the airport and have to walk all the way down to the only door that was open and then figured out that security was already closed, so instead of sleeping in not so comfy chairs, it was the floor for us! We found a spot and were out of it..well for a minute or two. The floor was so so cold and of course we had nothing except what we had packed..no blankets. So we slept (or laid there) for about 3 hours and then was rudely woken up by security. We checked in, went through security (where they threw my shower gel and scrunch gel away :(.. and then were on our way to wait another 2 hours for out flight to leave. Thinking about all of this just makes me laugh.. You always live and learn, that's for sure!!!!
So we finally take off and then have about an hour and 40 min bus ride from the airport to Paris. We metro our way to our hostel and luckily with no problems, find it fast. We recharge for a quick 30 minutes and charge our phones, and then off to find the meeting point for our FREE tour and of course to eat lunch. We eat at a yummy pizza place and relax with a Coke, then ready to start our 3 1/2 hour walking tour.
The tour was amazing and I learned so much about Paris. It was incredible and so beautiful.. Below are some pictures from the day!
