The next day I will be visiting 2 places in Paris. My first adventure will be visiting the Eiffel Tower. Did you know that the Eiffel Tower is the most visited monument in the world, bringing over 11 million visitors a year and it cost 7 euros to get into the Eiffel Tower. Also the Eiffel Tower was going to be demolished in 1909 but instead was re-purposed to be a radio antenna. One last fact about the Eiffel Tower is that it was built to show Frances power and growth. When the Eiffel Tower was built it cost over 7 million euros. The Eiffel Tower also has over 100 million different lights which is just amazing. This amazing monument definitely defines the French culture.

My second adventure for the day would be to go check out the "Musee du louvre". This museum is one of the most famous museums in the world with one of the most beautiful exhibits ever. Did you know this museum is the biggest museum in the whole world with hundreds of different exhibits. Another fact is that It was originally built as a fortress in 1190. One last fact about the Musee du louvre is that it houses the Mona Lisa, which is in the top three for the most famous paintings of all time. This museum is the most visited museum in France and is by far the most beautiful.

- On my final day in Paris I will be going to check out something that many people who visit Paris dont go and see. Its called the "Les Catacombs de Paris." Many people who visit the catacombs say that it gave them the creeps. Did you know that there are over 6 million full bodies worth of bones in this catacomb. Another fact about the Paris Catacombs is that when they decided to make this it was because that they ran out of room in all of the cemeteries so they had to make a Catacomb. One last fact about the Paris catacombs is that its all underground and it spans over 4.2 miles which is the largest in the world. So if you dont like getting creeped out I do not recommend going here.

The next day will be very busy for me. I will visit 2 places and also check into my new hotel later that day. My first adventure in Bordeaux will be to visit the "Mioir d'eau" which is one of the most beautiful things to visit in Bordeaux. Did you know that the Mior d'eau was built in 2006 all along the quays. Also the pool part is made of all granite with a little less that 2 inches of water on top which will give you the reflection when you look at it. On a nice day, when you look at the pool you will almost think that the water is glass because of how calm the water is. One last fact about this awesome monument is that many people say that this place is the true definition of the Bordeaux culture.
