    Paris - Champs-Élysées

    September 27, 2018 in France ⋅ 🌙 20 °C

    Von den Bateaux Bus aus sind wir als nächstes auf den Champs-Élysées gegangen. Da hatten die Schüler Freizeit und konnten sich in richtig Arc de Triumphe frei bewegen.
    Wir haben diese freie Zeit genutzt um sehr teure Macarons zu kaufen in einem sehr schönen Laden.
    Danach haben wir bei McDonalds Kuchen gegessen, der wirklich sehr lecker war.
    Vor dem Arc de Triumphe hatten wir dann sehr viel Spaß. Einige haben bei meinen Springe-Bildern mitgemacht und wir haben verschiedene Abklatsch/Schlag-Spiele gespielt. Ich mag die Truppe wirklich echt gerne! Auch so zwanzig Minuten ohne Programm ist echt lustig mit denen.
    Nach der Freizeit auf dem Champs-Elysées sind wir zu unserer letzten Attraktion aufgebrochen.

    Arc de Triomphe, Paris

    September 2, 2018 in France ⋅ ☀️ 22 °C

    Feeling very feet sore it was a relief to finally reach the Arc de Triomphe. Seeing it brought back so many memories from my Year 8 French lessons. I couldn't believe I was actually standing in front of it. Luckily I had done a little research and knew we had to walk under the road to reach the Arc de Triomphe, not risk our lives like some idiots trying to cross the extremely busy ring road.

    Measuring 50m tall and 45m wide, the Arc de Triomphe is the most monumental of all triumphal arches. It was built between 1806 and 1836 with its main purpose being to celebrate the victory of Napoleon. At the base of the Arch stands a torch and every evening at 6:30 pm it is rekindled to recognise the sacrifice of an unknown French soldier who gave his life during World War I, whose body is buried there.

    Thankfully we were able to get to the top in the lift and did not have to climb the 284 steps. The lift itself was amazing as it was a semi circle shape. Very unique and a bit claustrophobic, but I would have put up with anything so I wouldn't have to climb the stairs. I don't think my feet would have held up to the challenge at this stage.

    The views from the top were breathtaking and we could see the entire city spread out below. I loved the contrast of the leafy avenues against the white of the buildings. It was also a great view to some of the spectacular gardens built on top of the buildings. How on earth they built them there is beyond me. And of course, another great view of the iron lady, the Eiffel Tower.

    I was glad we managed to make our way here to experience the views, and to recall some school day memories.

    Arc De Triomphe

    May 25, 2015 in France ⋅ ⛅ 18 °C

    The Arc De Triomphe, the most monumental of all triumphal arches, was built between 1806 and 1836.

    The triumphal arch is in honor of those who fought for France, in particular, those who fought during the Napoleonic Wars. Engraved on the inside and at the top of the arch are all of the names of the generals and wars fought. There are inscriptions in the ground underneath the vault of the arch which include the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier from World War I where the Memorial Flame burns.

    The Arc De Triomphe was incredible to see in person, walk beneath it, to see the eternal Memorial Flame and engraved names.

    Arc de Triomphe & Champs-Élysées

    April 17, 2016 in France ⋅ ⛅ 10 °C

    After we had spent a few hours at the Louvre, we decided to go for a walk to Arc de Triomphe to soak up the sun. Arc de Triomphe sits at the end of 2km long boulevard called Champs-Élysées.

    Champs-Élysées is flanked with expensive stores and clearly attract the desired clientele. Not unlike the rest of Paris, this boulevard also has its share of street beggars - quite a juxtaposition of rich and poor. I've never noticed this many beggars at home. Or have we been so absorbed in our daily lives that we fail to notice the little things? In any case, it was quite a sad sight.

    By the time we got to Arc de Triomphe, our feet were aching and the sun was disappearing behind the clouds. The queue to climb to the top was too long. Flora's getting hungry - never a good thing. A few quick photos and we found the nearest metro to take us home.
