"One of my favorite moments was seeing the Eiffel Tower for the first time. I was with a couple of my friends and we walked from the Louvre Museum all the way to the Eiffel Tower. It did not look that far away, probably because it is so BIG, but I think we walked almost 2 hours to get there. Not only did I get to see the Eiffel Tower in the end, but I got to walk along the Seine River and see Paris in a way a probably would not have if I just rode the Metro there."
