Chelsie’s Weekend in Paris

July 19th, 2016 · No Comments

We made it back safely to London today and we are happy to be back! When we first landed in Paris, we knew the language barrier would be tough, but most people we spoke to knew some English. Because we landed at night in a city we’ve never been, it felt creepy, but that feeling never really subsided. Once we got to our very first hostel, we were greeted by the guys behind the desk and they were very friendly and helpful and spoke English fluently. Our room was small but nice and free breakfast was included. Our very first hostel stay was a positive experience! On Saturday we spent the whole day doing typical touristy stuff. We did a free walking tour and learned so much history on France and some of the monuments and landmarks. While on the tour, we met a girl from Pennsylvania! We spent the afternoon with her eating lunch and visiting the Eiffel Tower! The Eiffel Tower exceeded my expectations. It was amazing.


This entire trip is going by quicker and quicker each week. I can’t believe we start our last week with Sodexo tomorrow! It will definitely be bittersweet. Then it’s off to Italy for our last week! After being away in Paris made coming back to London feel so familiar and homey.
