Blogging From A to Z April - Day 6 - France

So F is for France :D

France is my second favourite country in the entire world, and yet I've only been there once! I went on the 6th December 2011, it was a trip to Paris with my school for the people who chose French as an option and the food tech people. Not sure why they came with us?? But oh well :P

I went with my two best buddies Harry and Bobby. I had the best time everrrrr, we got to visit so many places in just three days. Some including the a factory where they make chocolate, and a trip to The Louvre Museum and saw the Mona Lisa. This picture was obviously taken in 2011 so we were 14 years old and I had a bob, oh those days ;) Yeh excuse the hair it was kinda windy, although Bobby's hair looks pretty epic (one on the left) These two peeps made the trip 10x better!!

Im kinda coming off the topic here ahah :P So France is a whole other world to what it's like at home, a place were French women have perfectly clear skin and the streets are clean :O 



The places in France make it what it is mainly the Eiffel Tower, its an iconic piece of iron which is found on the Champ de Mars in Paris. Which is named  after the engineer Gustave Eiffel, whose company designed and built the tower. I managed, while on my school trip, to have the chance to go up the Eiffel Tower... and even got to go all the way up to the top too!!! Look at my amazing photography of the Eiffel Tower ;) and actually that day it was extremely sunny considering it was December!! 

Next is the River Seine. I hate boats!! and guess what we went on a boat trip :( But overall it was the most stunning river I had ever seen, it has so much history behind it. This fact isn't really the best but i thought that it was quite interesting... The river was a popular site for suicides and the disposal of bodies of murder victims. In the late 1700s and early 1800s over the space of six years 306 bodies were retrieved, the highest number in one day being 16. They were kept in the morgue for many years, and some were never identified. In 2007, 55 bodies were retrieved from its waters; in February 2008, the body of supermodel Katoucha Niane was found there. Ooooo errrrr creepy stuff :DDD

Not only is it a fantastic place but its one of the fashion capitals of the world. Many fashion designers have come from Paris and moved to Paris from all over the place. Many include Jean Paul Gaultier, Christian Dior, Christian Louboutin, Paco Rabanne and lets not forget the best of them all Coco Chanel. 

So that was a kinda long blog post for today, and leaned more over to be about Paris rather than France ahah oh well what can you do :P 

One day I hope to go back to Paris with my friends and maybe even live there 
This is me and my school outside the Notre Dame Cathedral, im the small one in the red coat at the front on the right :D

  1. Interesting stuff about France and Paris! Especially about the River Seine, creepy how many bodies they found! Would've thought with it being such a popular spot to dump bodies in the 17/1800's they'd keep a better eye on it!

    Great post, I hope you get to go to Paris again soon!


    1. I thought that too, but I guess not! Thank you :) I most defentaly will!! xx

  2. Hi Emma, I love France (Especially Paris). I too went on a school trip to Paris when I was 16 (about 16 years ago now!) and we dropped off outside Notre Dame at about 5.30 in the morning. Its a beautiful city though, so much to do and see. Its the people you are with that make a trip so memorable though to. Glad you had a nice time!
