Our Parisian adventure started with the Hop On Hop Off Bus Tour which took roughly an hour. We passed attractions such as Notre Dame, the Louvre, Place de la Concorde, Conciergerie, National Assembly, Palais Garnier and the Eiffel Tower. I really enjoyed the Hop On Hop Off bus tour and would definitely recommend it as it was a quick and easy way to see the main attractions of the city.
Once we finished the tour we walked the streets of Paris, getting our bearings and experiencing first hand local life by enjoying ice cream and fresh bread whilst window shopping. Eventually, we made our way back to our hotel which was situated in the Latin Quarter. Here, we showered and slept off the remaining jet lag.
The French Revolution of 1789. A period of time when cell phones, Facebook and selfies weren't 'a thing,' I suppose you could say life was pretty dull. What's the point of living when you can't update what you've had for breakfast or post the latest morning selfie on Instagram #nomakeupselfie. But I do have to say, there was much more going on during the year of 1789 than that of our futuristic selfie (or self obsessed more like it) twenty nineteen.
For all of you who are reading this and have no idea about this French Revolution nonsense, then I suggest you go to the nearest library and pick up a book and start reading, or seeing as though we are technological crazed beings living in the 21st century, perhaps just Google it.
