i have been here quite a few times but mostly with my school so it was a little sheltered. i have obviously been to paris though didnt bother to wait to go up the eiffel tower as the que is always huge. i also didnt get to go the notre dame as the coach trip my dad had won for me didnt include this.
i have been to paris with my boyfriend, i love the buildings in paris, the way the city looks. at first i found french people to be very rude but if everyone seems rude to me then they must just be doing something i find rude as a normal part of their lives. it was paris so its a big inner city like london so i guess i shouldnt be surprised if they seem a little grumpy. the shop owners etc are nice though. i recomend the boat trip on the river, it was informative and it was damn impressive to watch someone present paris in a variety of languages!!
we had a photo taken by surprise which my boyfriend looks fabulous in and i look like i am trying to run away, which i sort of am.
i have also been to the south of france with pgl http://www.pgl.co.uk/online/ which i found was a great experience and i recomend this company. i was bullied at school and sufered from depression and this holiday really helped me every year.
also have been to normandy and caen but only on a french exchange so i didnt really see much more than museums which i remember but in a childish sort of way.
