The First Two Weeks: My Journey to Paris

13 Mrz, 2024

First week in Paris

The first week in Paris was truly fascinating. It took a while for me to adapt to school and daily life, but once I got into the rhythm, everything went very smooth. On the first weekend, we ventured together into Paris for the first time. Even though I was already familiar with most of the sights, it remained incredibly interesting.

We took the metro to the Arc de Triomphe and strolled along the Champs-Élysées. Passing by the Petit Palais, Grand Palais, and the Invalides Dome, we walked down the „Pont Alexandre Troisème“ bridge until we finally reached the Place de la Concorde and the Louvre. The day was both incredibly beautiful and exhausting!

Second week in Paris

The second week flew by quickly. On Saturday, we were back in Paris, mainly to climb to the second floor of the Eiffel Tower. From up there, we had a magnificent view of all of Paris and could spot all the famous buildings and monuments. Afterward, we went to the „Tour Montparnasse,“ spent some time there, but had to return early as we had underwater hockey training in the evening. In my host family, the two sisters and their father actively play, and my exchange partner used to play as well. He taught me a bit about how it all works and what to watch out for. It was definitely a lot of fun but also incredibly demanding! On Sunday, we visited a huge shopping center.
