Today, is a warm day … Mayday, filled with boating events and such, yet here I am thinking about travel and how cost effective the Paris Pass would be if I decide to indulge in a trip to Paris.
I used to speak French fluently until after grade school then our school district stripped out French, Spanish and replaced them with German. http://www.parispass.com/paris-attractions/Louvre-Museum.html
Yes, it was disturbing as a kid and to be sure switching to German was not an option and by the time I graduated from High School, French was but a memory. I tried to use my French as much as possible on visits in Canada for fun clubs and the food even though
the border was not kind to me. Not only was the car pulled over each time boyfriend and I had to cross, the whole thing was disturbing yet it did not stop us from enjoying Canada though. I will admit our trips became less fun and thus less frequent over the years. I would recommend going to Canada a few times to explore and enjoy the food, visit Montreal and Toronto... they are some of favourite places including Vancouver and then redirect your plans and go directly to Paris! Oh and do not forget your pass ... The Paris Pass is a sightseeing card which gives holders FREE ENTRY to over 60 sights and tourist attractions in Paris. Customers simply pay the one off price for the Paris Pass of their choice (there are three durations to choose from) and then can enter as many of the tourist attractions included on the pass that they wish to, without paying, plus travel for free on the Paris Metro System.
Attractions which can be visited free with the Paris Pass are the Louvre Museum, the Arc de Triomphe, a Seine river cruise, an open top bus sightseeing tour, the Grevin Wax Museum and the Palace of Versailles – to name but a few
