Day 1
Since it's been a long time I did not travel, I decided, with the fortunate fact that I had money, to go to France. Once arrived there I took care of some things that will help me during the vacation. I started with a budget of $5000. I paid $76 for s hotel and I would have to pay $20 each day until the 7th. I went shopping for $20, and I've paid $978 to go to France. And i also rent a car which was to be paid $25 each day.
A couple of hours later, I went to visit the Eiffel Tower. Once arrived there, I glanced at what I saw. I've seen the Eiffel Tower on TV but there's a big difference in watching something on television and seeing it in front of your eyes. It's really magnificient. So was the architecture. The epople there are very friendly and welcomed me with open arms. There's a restaurant at its top and the food is extremely delicious. I paid $10 for it since I did not eat much. In conclusion, the first day was incredibly fun! I had $3901 left.

Day 2
The second day I started with a budget of $3901. I didn't know where to visit. Then something came to me. I went to le Havre. It took me about 3 hours to get there. Before I went there, I payed the $20 of lodgment which was a daily bill, the $25 for the car I rent which also had to be paid in a daily basis, $30 for gas.
Once arrived there, I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw the beauty of Le Havre. There were beautiful girls near the beach, restaurants and activities all over the place. All of them offered help, when I needed them the most. I spent $150 there. I had a lot of fun, really enjoyed myself. And once again, on my fortunate day, I won $20 on one of the activities. So far I spent s really good time!external image le-havre.jpg
Day 3
The next day started like any other day. Evidently the budget decreased from day 2. Now I had $3671 to start with. I was thinking and thinking where I should go. Then I decided to go to Lyon. Like always, I paid the $20 of lodgment, $25 for the car I rent, and $3 for laundry. Then I headed straight to Lyon.
The main reason why I went there is because the best soccer club in France is Lyon. There was a game that day and I wanted to watch it. So I paid $25 to watch the game. It made my day because Lyon won. A goal from Juninho and Lisandro. It was extremely fun! I took a picture of Juninho, some fans and I.

Day 4
Saint-Etienne was next in my list. With $3581 leftover, I was good to go, I thought. I paid all my bills and headed straight there. I went to the cathedral where the architecture is incredible. I took pictures, visited all parts of the church. Again I spent a good time.

Day 5
The fifth day of my vacation I went to Lille, another fancy place in France. As usual I paid for the hotel and the car i rent, I put gas on the car. Then I headed straight to Lille.
A friend told me that in Lille, they make delicious foods. And since I was dying of hunger I went to one of those restaurants there. Like my friend told me, the food was extremely delicious but expensive at the same time. I paid $50 for the meal.., in including drinks and dessert.This was one of my favorite day of vacation.

Day 6
The last day of my vacation since I had to go back to Florida the day after. So I wanted this day to be the best of the whole vacation. So I went to the beach in Paris and rode a cruise. I spent the entire day there. I talked to some beautiful girls that were there, ate, enjoyed it due to the fact that it was the last day of my vacation.
In conclusion, I spent a good time in France and I will never forget this important period of my life. It was really fun. People treated me well, they helped when I needed them...

It was time to leave, time to go back to the original life. I had $1713 left. I figure it wasn't bad after all! external image smiley-face.jpglol
