We made it Paris!
The team left Vienna this morning and had about a 90 minute flight to Paris. We were all pretty tired from the hectic travel at the airports, but we went right to sightseeing after we checked into the hotel.
The first sight we checked out was the Sacre-Coeur. There were A LOT of steps to get to the entrance of the cathedral, but the views of the city were amazing. We toured the inside of the cathedral, then found a place to eat. The food was good but most of us stuck with the pasta.
After dinner, the entire team took a boat tour on the River Seine. We sat on the top level of a boat and had great views of the Eiffel Tower, Notre Dame and other famous buildings in Paris. We posed for a lot of photos and waived to the people sitting on the shore of the river. We had a lot of fun!
Tomorrow we are taking a bus tour of the city and then we are on our own to hit up more museums and landmarks in Paris. We are all looking forward to seeing more of this awesome city!
