Bonjour! Ça va? (Don’t worry that’s all the French I have for you in this post)
Last day in Paris. Alas this will be the last post about the trip as well, (I mean nothing else would really make sense ya know :P).
I could tell you all about the time I went to Nice as well, but I’m pretty sure some of you must be a biiit tired of hearing about France by now so I’ll spare you. I’m just that considerate.
Alright, now that we’ve established that my joking game is weak and the intro is done, let’s get started!
Before we left the hotel this morning we had to have all our stuff packed and ready to go, so that we could just grab it before heading to the airport when we would return later in the day.
The mindset on a school trip is pretty much like this: “It doesn’t matter if we just arrived or if we’re leaving today, we’re not letting a moment go to waste. Let’s go, we have 3 things to see today”
Can any of you relate to this or is it just my teachers who are crazy planners?:P
We walked to the first sight of the day which was the Opéra Garnier. It was too early in the day so we couldn’t go inside, but we didn’t really have time for it anyway so we just admired it from the outside.
Following that we walked towards Rue de la Paix which was pretty uneventful again since all the shops were closed. We probably wouldn’t have been able to afford anything there but it would’ve still been fun to visit a very fancy store.
After that we went to Place Vendôme where our teachers talked about the history of it. I think we were supposed to see the Tuileries Garden as well, but as far as I remember we never did.
Instead we walked straight to our very last touristy stop on this trip. And that would be the Musée d’Orsay. We had yet again questions to answer about the art there, so our experience was a bit like at the Louvre. Except that we were in a bigger rush this time so we didn’t have time to answer all the questions. We really made an effort though but we spent way too much time getting lost at the museum than we did finding the actual answers 😛 I also spent some time taking pictures of the giant watch, but I’m pretty sure that wasn’t why we didn’t have time.
When we were all done we went back to the hotel. We walked of course, always walking. Something you can be certain off whenever going on a trip with my two french teachers is that you’ll get plenty of exercise, so don’t you worry about eating those crêpes. And I mean one of the teachers is constantly wearing heels, I truly don’t know how she does it.
We ate lunch together at a cafe near the hotel, we had some time to do what we wanted and then we got on the subway heading towards the airport. Even they must’ve thought it would be overkill to walk there 😉
Before we knew it we were sitting on a plane, all tired from a couple of days filled with experiences, too much walking and new impressions. I don’t think any of us would’ve hesitated to say yes if we’d been asked to do it all over again though. I know I wouldn’t have. I’m in love with France and I don’t think I’ll ever get tired of travelling.
Do any of you feel the same way? About France or about travelling in general?
Let me know and do let me know if you like hearing about my travels as well. Or if you don’t! I’m always open to suggestions, constructive criticism – any kind of feedback really 🙂
You might have noticed that I changed the featured images on this series as well. Instead of them all just being the same I wanted to change it up a bit.
Which featured image is your favorite? (Day 1, day 2, day 3 or day 4).
I’ve already asked you way too many questions by now so byyyyeeee. I hope your weekend was great!
