France

sunny 20 °C

The UK was very interesting experience I really like the soccer game. Now I am heading to Paris to see the Eiffel tower. France receives the highest number of tourists per year, largely thanks to the numerous cultural establishments and historical buildings implanted all over the territory. It counts 1,200 museums welcoming more than 50 million people annually. So when I was passing I saw many different people doing different things but almost everyone had a camera with them shooting a picture of themselves beside the Eiffel tower. It was a really busy day here in France, France was hosting its annual Tour de France which is an annual bicycle race held in France and nearby countries. First staged in 1903, the race covers more than 3,600 kilometres (2,200 mi) and lasts three weeks. As the best known and most prestigious of cycling's three "Grand Tours", the Tour de France attracts riders and teams from around the world. The race is broken into day-long segments, called stages. Individual times to finish each stage are aggregated to determine the overall winner at the end of the race. While the bikers were still going they looked very professional, people cheering for their favourite biker and they were going so fast for a long distance event. I was very amazed at how much skill you need just to ride a bike. When I got back I over heard these to guy talking about how Paris is the City of Lights and their amazing times at the Eiffel Tower, the Louvre, the Scare-Coeur, Montmartre, Saint-Germain I was thinking that this country is not only very diversified, it also offers most of what you can possibly be looking for your vacation. Whether it's an adventure vacation, a tour, just sightseeing for a day, shopping or experiencing different cuisines, in France you can do it all.
