Long Weekend Plans! Lovely London, Pretty Paris!

– by Akshaya Iyer

For some awesome architecture, tasty desserts and great memories visit London, England, and Paris, France! There is plenty to see and do in these places!

Let’s say Hello London! Take a tube and go down to the London Eye and take a ride on the wheel for a breathtaking view of the city.  Proceed to the Big Ben from there,  which is adjacent to the London Eye to see a beautiful clock tower. After touring this amazing architecture, visit the Buckingham Palace to see where the royals live. There, at certain times you can also witness the ‘Changing of the Guard’ which is very unique and impressive!  And not to mention the Tower Bridge to get a great view of the River Thames. 

Take an overnight train to Paris for another fun-filled, thrilling experience! When you first arrive in Paris, take a boat tour to see the  Eiffel Tower, Louvre Museum, and the Palace of Versailles. Do go back to the Eiffel Tower again at night to see the Eiffel Tower light show!

For breakfast in Paris, head to any cafe and get Croissants (whether it be plain or chocolate) or try some delicious crepes with a fruit filling. For some amazing dessert, go to any bakery and pick up some rich and delicious macaroons in all kinds of flavors like strawberry, lemon, and more! Another dessert option is to head to a gelato shop and get the famous Flower Gelato. An additional delicious dessert to try is Eclairs (a pastry)! Also, make sure to get some Baguettes before leaving Paris!

For a nice evening stroll, explore the city by foot. There’s plenty of souvenirs such as miniature Eiffel Towers, keychains, sweatshirts, and more available from the street vendors!

Once the pandemic is over, to get a great experience with yummy desserts and rich architecture, head on down to London and Paris!
