Last April I had the privilege of traveling to Europe with a group of 20 students from my high school. We were gone a total of two full weeks. The majority of our time in Europe was spent in France. We also visited Italy, Monaco, and England but I will talk about those places at a later time. While in France, we toured many of the major attractions. Of course, the first thing we visited was the Eiffel Tower.

We spent about 2 hours standing in line waiting for our turn to take the elevator up the tower. We were only able to go as high as the 2nd level because the 3rd level was under construction. The view from the 2nd level was breathe taking. I can only imagine what it would have looked like from the very top. Have you ever been to the very top of the tower? What was your experience like?

Some of the other attractions I visited during my time in France were:
Touring Versailles
Visiting the Pere Lachaise Cemetery
Walked to the top of the Notre Dame Catherdrale
Visited Nice, France
Traveled from Northern France to Southern France on the TGV
Walked along the Mediterranean Beach
Explored old castles
And much, much more!

Here are some pictures I took throughout my trip

                                          This is a picture of the group I traveled to France with.

                                                                    Nice, France
If you have any questions for me about my experiences feel free to ask! I would love to share more of my experiences and learn about adventures you had while traveling abroad.
