Father-Daughter Eurotrip: Day 14


 Dad and I had hoped that our last day trip in Paris would have been as memorable as the Normandy Day Trip. Yet, both Dad and I were very disappointed in the tour and the tour guide. We had booked a World War I tour of Arras and Vimy Ridge. What we had hoped for and what we got out of the tour were two completely different things. We were very happy when we got back to Paris.

World War I Tunnel
Putting aside the negative parts of the tour, we were able to see some of the cemeteries and memorials to the various countries for the First World War. We also had a chance to view the tunnels and trenches at the Canadian memorial.

 
After we returned to London, I took off to explore Shakespeare & Co.- the famous bookstore before Dad and I decided to get dinner on Les Champs Elysses.  Of course, what dinner at Les Champs Elysses would be complete without first exploring L’Arch de Triomphe. Dinner was great, and we finished the evening off at Laduree (but, of course!).
