First Years Visit Paris
We had to be at school for a quarter past six, so many of us had to get up at five o’clock in the morning; we were all very tired. We took the coach that we booked for the weekend to Dover, and got the ferry to Calais, only to get back on the coach to our hotel in Paris. The hotel was called the Explorers’ Hotel, and was very spacious. We were in rooms of about five. On the Friday evening, we went to watch Buffalo Bills’ Wild West show, which was super exciting! We got to see live horses and buffaloes in the arena, and we ate unique Wild West food for dinner. It was very tasty! After that we concluded the evening with some shopping in Disney Village.
The next morning we woke up to alarms at seven am, ready for a full blown day in Disneyland. We had a buffet breakfast downstairs in the hotel. We were in the park ready for it to open at nine am and the queues were not too bad. All day we went on rides and ate lots of burgers and slushies. Our favourite ride was Big Thunder Mountain and the Indiana Jones ride. Later we went into the Walt Disney Studios and we went on the Ratatouille ride four times!
The final day of the trip we headed into Paris. We saw the Eiffel Tower in the sunshine and took lots of photos. Then we went 56 floors up in a lift to see all of Paris from the top of the Montparnasse tower. It was so beautiful. Finally we walked up to the Sacre-Coeur and had lunch in Montmartre, which was really busy! We were so excited to shop in the little shops and buy our lunch in French. We got back onto the coach and began the long journey home. We had a fabulous time in Paris and are so happy Mrs Roberts, Mr Jones, Mr Christou, Mrs Unwin and Miss Troughton could take us on this amazing trip.
