Well its been awhile!!! I just thought i would do a blog eventhough im not a fan of these anymore, hahaha!!! Well friday night me, sara and kelsey headed to paris on yet, another bus!!!! Its was the 3rd weekend in a row that ive taken a long bus ride somewhere!!! Well we got to london and on the bus, and headed off around 830!!! We drove to dover where we take the ferry over to france!!! Well i guess a couple days before than, Sea France went on strike!!! We ended up sitting waiting to board a ferry for like 4 to 5 hours, it was ridiculous!! We finally got into paris around 10 on saturday morning!!! Me and the girls split cuz we were staying in two different hostels!! There were two guys supposed to come with me but they backed out!!! I headed off to my hostel to drop off my bag, i got there and i couldnt get to my room til 4 that afternoon, the hostel was pretty disgusting!!
So i dropped off my bag and called shelby (a friend from osu thats studying at dijon), she decided to come up with some friends the same weekend and meet up with me!! Well i headed off to meet them at a museum!! They were already in the museum so i decided just to wait outside til they got done!! I got some lunch and walked around. They finallly came out and she introduced me to her friends. There were 2 canadian guys and a girl from kentucky, they were pretty cool. They got some lunch and than we headed to Notre Dame!! Notre Dame was absoluty beautiful! They were giving free tours in all the languages so we got there in time for the english one!! The lady was a volunteer and really couldnt speak good english!! The tour was around 50 min and than we hiked up to the top of the notre dame, it was 420 steps!! It was tiring, but well worth it!!
After Notre Dame we headed over to the eiffel tower! Shelby and them got in line and headed up and i was supposed to meet kelsey and sara at an underground station at 6. I came to find out at 6 that the underground station was closed so i had no idea what to do. The girls didnt have a phone so i couldnt call them. So i went back to the eiffel tower and sat for like an hour hoping they would show up. They eventually did and we went and got some dinner! After a good dinner we grabbed some amazing Crepes and headed back to our hostels cuz we were exhausted!! I got to the hostel and came to find out that bathrooms were outside, we did have showers in our room but they were really small!! It seemed like we were just camping out in the woods!! Ill never recommend that place to anyone!! haha!!
On sunday i got up bright and early and met the girls at the Louvre. We came to paris at the right time, all the museums were free on the first sunday of each month!! So we went thru the louvre, ive already been there before but it was still cool to see again!! After the Louvre we headed to versailles, we got lost but we finally found it!! Versailles was alright, we didnt do the whole thing because part of it cost money, but i had already seen them before!!! After versailles we took the train back to downtown paris and went and saw the Cirque de Triumph, and than got some dinner!! After dinner we headed to the eiffel tower to go to the top at night!! It was beautiful!!! After the eiffel tower we called it a night cuz we had been going nonstop since 9!!
Monday morning i got up around 1030 and made my way to the bus station. I met a lady from denver, when i was waiting for the underground and i talked to her for awhile!! I met the girls at the bus station and we left there around 2!! We drover for about 4 hours and made it to customs!! Customs is a total pain in the butt!! We had to get out for the french customs with our bags and passports! We went thru pretty fast but a guy from brazil got stopped and had a problem with his passport!! We ended up sitting there for 2 hours waiting on him, the officers finally came out and told us to go ahead, the guy was getting deported back to brazil!! Than we had to go to British customs and the same freaking thing happened, two guys had somehting wrong with their passports!! We finally got thru and got on a cargo train, it only took like 30 min to get across the ocean!! We finally made it home around 11 that night!! It was a good trip!!!
