to Paris is amazing! Plus, we are saving alot of money on hotel by staying with a few of my guys friends over there some nights.

If Paris doesn't work out it's Punta Cana but, I'm super excited.

Getting my passport on Tuesday. YAAAYYYYYY!

Anyone been to either?

i've been to paris. my absolute favorite spot is montmatre. it's the highest hill in paris and over looks the city. it also has a really old church but the coolest thing about it is its an artist's village and has been for years - its where impressionism started. the "bohemien" movement in europe happened, etc. its really worth spending time there especially if your into the artistic side of culture.

The first thing I did when I got there was went and saw the catacombs, seriously don't miss it.



Also see; The Louve, Notre Dame (and the crypts), Arch D'triumph, Gare du Nord, The Eiffel Tower, and save time to shop at the Champs-Elysees.

Also, eat french chocolate mousse every night for dessert.

thanks! i'm going to start checking some things out, for timing and that kind of thing, hopefully we will have a few awesome tour guides taking us around showing us the cool shit.

i need more chocolate in my life. i think i will eat chocolate mousse every night. live a little hehe.

we will be on a little bit of a budget so cheap spots to eat are a MUST

punta cana has been pushed aside for amsterdam which we could also stay basically for free.

paris is still top choice though.

this was awesome, they had cool archs leading to the metro. you seriously need like 4 days or more to see everything. shit, you need a few hours for the louve (btw: the mona lisa is a really small painting).

if you have the extra money, take a train down to the french riviera, it's so beautiful.

if your boy knows people from there, they will probably be able to take you to cheaper places with good food and keep you away from the tourist traps that cost more.

I've had the luck to go there twice, absolutely beautiful city -- Louvre for sure, Le Pere Lachaise Cemetery is outside of the city but a very cool place (Jim Morrison's buried there too, which is why I went), Palace of Versailles (bout half hour outside the city), Musée d'Orsay (museum that was a train station), clearly the Eiffel Tower and Notre-Dame --- I'd love to go back there, everything about that city is gorgeous

This place is cool if you like modern art and its within the city


Good page with a ton of museum info
