Paris Attraction; Louvre

Luvre is not to be missed tourism site in Paris. And you really need to allocate a whole day for this one.
It is the most biggest museum I ever been. So many Interest things inside, especially this is where the famous MONALISA painting is being keep. Unfortunately, all exhibition name and explanation is in France. You may need to rent an electronic guide for 6 Euro if you want to know what are you seeing there.

The ticket pricing.
It is free entry for European Student. Therefore me and my friend, we can enter free as we are student in Germany. If you want to get this free entry ticket also you must bring along your passport with your student visa inside together with your student card from European School or University. If you only bring your student card, you won't get the free ticket. This what happened with one of my friend,Soroush. he have to bought a youth ticket (below 26 yrs old) because he forgot bring his passport. Pity him  :(

As I said in the beginning there so many things inside Luvre. Below are few of them.

Me and the Monalisa Painting.

Paris; Notre Dame Cathedral

Notre Dame Cathedral is the 1st tourism site that I visited in Paris. It is because on that day is exactly Easter and I wanted to have an Easter mass in a church. It is why my friend Sourosh suggested us to go to Notre Dame in early morning so that I can have my Easter Mass and my other friends can have their sight seeing inside or around the cathedral. Everybody Happy  ^^V

Aura by Swarovski; Spring Collection

I was in Champs Elysees street in Paris when I passed by this Swarovski outlet and my eyes just couldn't resist the sparkling of the Cristal on top the Aura Parfum's bottle displayed on the window.  I actually knew about this new Parfum from internet and from the sample given by a Parfum store in Germany and I'm interesting already because the smell is so fresh and it really great as now is spring. The only thing is I haven't seen the physical product before, and once I saw it I just felt in love :)

Air France: Stuttgart-Paris Route & Cost of transportation while stay in Paris

On 23April 2011 me and my friends were flying to Paris via Stuttgart airport with Air France. Surprisingly, The plane is small like Airasia. The different is the fare included 23kg baggage allowance and free snack & drink on board as well as free seat allocation.  The duration of our flight is about 1 hour 30 minutes.

With my travel Buddies.From left to right:
Me, Sundeep , Ai Lin, Akash, Helen and Iris.

Our Flight Information
Me & Miklos Vilaghy from Hungary. 
This is his 1st time traveling with plane as in Europe traveling is more common via train & bus. 

The snack on plane.

Above is list of transportation cost in Paris. Price depend on number of day and zone.We bought the 51,20 Euro/person ticket for a ticket valid in zone 1-6 for 5days because we are in Paris from 23 april to 27 April 2011. Believe me, this might look Super Expensive but this is the cheapest offer we can wish for. Transportation cost in Paris really expensive and the journey  from 1 place to another place is  very far. From the airport to my friend place in zone 4 take 2hours train journey. Unbelievable!!!! But when u ask people who stay in Paris, 45minutes train journey from 1 place to another is can be consider close already. Amazing.!!!
