A Cool Trip to ... - Day 1

Last Thursday we went on a trip.
My owner told me to pack for 5 days, and to take my passport. We took a train and went to Schiphol where we had to board another train. We traveled for almost 6 hours. I will confess I fell asleep at one point and when I woke up:

We had arrived at our hotel.
I wondered where we were. That's Mona Lisa in the painting. Rome?

The view out of the window wasn't telling me anything.

Then my owner showed me the map of the city.
We were in Paris!

After putting away our luggage we decided to do a little sightseeing before it got too dark. We took a metro into the city.

Knowing me it might not surprise you we visited an old cemetery.

There were some really beautiful statues there.

In the distance I spotted the roof of a church.
My owner told me we'd go there next.

The Sacré-Cœur!
The Sacré-Cœur (Sacred Heart) is a relatively new church, build between 1875 and 1914, but I think it's a beautiful church.

It's on a hill so you can look over the city.
It was grey and foggy though, so we couldn't see very far.

We had a look around both outside the church as inside, but we weren't allowed to take pictures inside.

After visiting the Sacré-Cœur we walked back to the metro station. So far I thought Paris was a beautiful city.

When we were close to our hotel we found a place to get something to eat. After dinner we went to our hotel to get some sleep.

@Alexander: We need to be able to identify ourselves when asked, with a passport or ID card. I only have my passport and no ID card.
