In London I joined a Contiki tour, and from there we headed off across the English channel via ferry to Calais, France. My first real taste of France came when we arrived to Paris. What surprised me the most about Paris was the wide, wide avenues they have. I was expecting cramped, small streets but the Champs de Elysee is huge!
I was really looking forward to seeing the Eiffel Tower in person and I have to say it definitely did not disappoint!
