Day 12 - France at Last!

During the night I woke up at 4am and stayed that way for 30min until falling back asleep until 7:20. We went downstairs and had a lovely breakfast prepared by the hotel. We then went out and looked at the 'Arc de Triumph' and we even got to climb up! On the top there was a fantastic view but I'm not sure it was worth it. We had to climb 284 steps to get up! I did get to touch snow up there though so it was pretty cool.

After the Triumphal Arch we went to my Papa's place which was close by. We spent a couple of hours there including lunch. We had a great time there and i even received some presents. I got a torch, a watch, a wallet and a steak knife! Not just any steak knife, an ornate steak knife!

After Papa's place we went to the Eifell Tower to go up it. Once there we saw the line and it was monumental! (Get it! It was at a monument... Ahr! Ahr!) We ended up not going up and we went to the Maritime Museum instead. That was pretty cool as we got to see heaps of models of ships and carriers and busts.

We finally we home and now are waiting for dinner.
