My birthday trip to Paris was a success, and a successful completion of a good chunk of my bucket list.
Our train arrived midday Friday, and we spent the first few hours getting completely lost in the streets. When we finally made it back to the hostel we stayed in, we unpacked and then wandered down to the Louvre. Where we saw beautiful art pieces including the Lady Victory, Statues of hercules and the Mona Lisa.
The Mona Lisa is a wonderful piece of art and something beautiful to look at however my favourite piece contained something that looked extraordinarily like the Death star and Darth Vader in the top right hand corner of the painting, making my friends and I laugh to this day.
That evening we watched the light show on the Eiffel Tower from the Arc de Triomphe, it was a great way to see anticipate the our adventures the next day, climbing the tower itself. We walked up every step the next day, which was very painful. We went right to the top, it was an amazing site and something i would suggest everyone does at least once as the view from the top was definitely worth it.
That evening we walked back up the Rue La Fayette, with an amazing view, and had a nice dinner in the bar, with some live music. Leaving late the next day, we spent the morning walking down the Champs-Élysées, adventuring into the shops and having a nice relaxed time before the train home.
It was an amazing adventure that was the perfect end to my teenage years and begin my twenties, completing as much of my bucket list as i can to fill my life with amazing experiences. There are somethings i didn’t get to complete, but i believe thats the perfect excuse to go back again!
