Student Voices 2012: STEPHANIE


While spending a month in France, the thing I enjoyed most was our weekend trip to Paris! When we first arrived in Paris I was super excited because I’ve always wanted to go to Paris.  The first thing we did when arriving in Paris was took a bus tour around the city.  After that we checked into our hotel and made our way to the Eiffel Tower.  We walked up 669 steps to the second platform and had to take the lift to the top.  When we arrived at the top it was beautiful.  I only dreamed about actually visiting the Eiffel Tower so it was a dream come true.  The view was amazing and I was really excited to have been up there.  After leaving the Eiffel Tower, some friends and I made our way to the Moulin Rogue.  The Moulin Rogue was a fun experience and cool Broadway type show, only with topless girls.  The next morning we got up and made our way to the Notre Dame cathedral, It was beautiful as well and we just toured the inside for a bit and after leaving did a little shopping.  That same night we attended the Kanye West and Jay Z Watch the Throne tour, which was EPIC! I had already attended the concert in Chicago but in Paris it was 10x better.  The concert to me was not only the best thing I experienced in Paris, but in France as a whole.  Now that brings us to the last day. That Sunday we went to the Louvre museum, which is huge! We only saw a few sections of the museum because it was way too big.  One thing we did see was there was the Mona Lisa.  It was crazy how people were surrounding the portrait and eager to see it.  I mean it was cool and all but those people were crazy.  After leaving the museum there wasn’t too much else to do so we just killed time until it was time to board the train back to Grenoble.
