France was an unexpected joy for me. I have enjoyed every minute of my time here! I had previously only spent one day in Paris (as a day trip from London -- what a joke!! You can't do Paris in a day!) and was unimpressed with my time there. This time around, we spent about 9 days in France -- 3 in the French Riviera and 6 in Paris.
My sister's favorite city is Paris, and I know many others who have loved this city. I liked it a lot but I feel like I need to spend more time here to truly enjoy it. It is such a big city with so many things to see.
Today I went to the French Open, which was one of the highlights of my trip so far! It's been a goal of mine to attend all of the tennis Grand Slams (Australian Open, French Open, Wimbledon, and U.S. Open) and as of today, I only have the Australian Open left! I need to plan a trip to Australia...
Anyway, I was lucky enough to get allocated a lottery ticket to the French Open this year -- you have to enter your name in a lottery in order to get a ticket. Some people entered the lottery, booked their flights/hotels...only to be told that they didn't get a ticket!! Fortunately, I was one of the lucky ones who got a ticket, even though it wasn't in the section that I wanted.
I am sad to leave France, but I am also eager to return to Barcelona! It's hard to believe that I've been travelling for over 3 weeks...I feel like it has been a lifetime.
