I was suprised when my father told us that he booked tickets to Paris in summer 2014. We always had plans to go somewhere in Europe, but I never took it seriously. Later, in 30 April I was accepted in Central Supélec to pursue a master degree. It was a very nice coincidence.
We started planning our journey one month before visiting Paris, with the help of my father and some suggestions from mom, Ribal (my brother) and Dima (my sister). I used google maps to mark the places that we intend to visit and then we made a plan for our journey ( Our guide: visiting Paris). We did not stick to the plan as it is but it was very useful.
It is really exiting to go to Paris with my family knowing that I will stay there for a year most likely! I was not planning what happens after this week, rather I was focused on enjoying everyday and making the best of it. We visited the most known locations in Paris and had great fun. The hotel was also amazing! It is located in Vaugirard street near Montparnasse, in the center of Paris. They even have a kinect in the salon. We also found a very nice park nearby where all the family played ping pong once. I will let the pictures describe the days of this visit.

Dima’s Birthday: She eats the “tarte” and I take a bite!!
During the last few days, I had to bring my bags to Orsay, the location of the student residence. This day we had to buy a “croissant” from a shop in the metro station to get some exchange and use it to buy the ticket for the RER. This is not everything because we also took the RER B going in a wrong direction!
Nowadays, time has passed and I am getting used to the life abroad. This week with the family was unforgettable.
