Paris day 1

On April 10, 4:00am in the morning dad, mom, Shea, and I went to the Regina airport. We were about to go on a plane to Paris, France! First we went to Winnipeg to Toronto. When we arrived in Toronto we had to stay there for six hours before our next flight so we went to Meredith's apartment.
We gave Meredith a painting for her 22 birthday which was the next day. The painting was by Kayla Plosz one of her friends.
After the nice visit we got on the plane to Paris!
We arrived in Paris it was 10 in the morning.
When I was three years old I started getting interested in Paris. My favourite was the Eiffel Tower.
So when we arrived in Paris we got off the and met the EF group guide, Max. Max is from Rome. We also met the other groups from Newfoundland. Then we waited for the bus. The bus took an hour till it came but it was worth it! The airport wasn't really in the city of Paris it's kind of in the out-skirts. Now this was my big moment of excitement! When we arrived in Paris (the city) I was amazed! No wonder I loved it so much it was beautiful! I couldn't believe my eyes it was so amazing! That was one of my favorite moments I've ever had. The bus ride to get to our hotel was two hours! But the hotel was on the out-skirts too. 
After we got to our hotel we waited for this person in the Regina group because they took the wrong luggage at the airport! But thank goodness the person who took her luggage was from Regina also! Then after that confusion we headed to the Louvre. The Louvre is the world's largest museum. The Louvre also has the Mona Lisa and Venus Di Milo, which are one of the world's most loved pieces of art. The Louvre is very big! Thats becasue the Louvre used to be a castle and it's about seven long blocks wide! Our tour group could go into whatever section of the museum we wanted to see. It would probably take you about a month or more to see the whole museum! Our family saw the art and statues sections. We first visited the statues section. I was very intersted in the Lourve because I love art and I was so excited to see everything there. My mom thought I was going to fuss about all the walking to find the right section and she was worried I was going to be bored after a awhile but my sister and my dad were the fussers that day and my mom was very proud of me. We saw Venus Di Milo and she was my favorite. I also saw Mona Lisa which was amazing you can see why they call her smile mystery. The was really great!
They next thing we did was see the Eiffel Tower! As you know the Eiffel Tower is my favorite thing about Paris. It was about seven or eight o'clock at night. The Eiffel Tower is beautiful at night. Well when we got there we had an hour to look around ad maybe buy some food in the shops there or take pictures. We took pictures. It was an hour and we were waiting. We were waiting for Max and it was a long time till he came. While we were waiting the Eiffel Tower started to flash the lights that were on there and it was one of the most beautiful things I've ever seen! Finally Max came and we went on a boat at 10:30 at night for an hour long boat tour. I was so tired but I was the kid on the tour who didn't sleep. My mom was happy and I was sleeping. We went back to the hotel and that was day 1 of Paris.
