Planes, Trains, Metros, and Buses


I just arrived back in Paris today! My dad drove from my town in Massachusetts to John F. Kennedy Airport in New York so that I could take a direct flight to Paris. Direct flights when flying can be a lot less stressful because you do not have to worry about missing a connecting flight nor your luggage not making it on the next plane with you. Once you are in Paris, though, transportation becomes a lot easier than flying.

How do people get around?:

People love to walk in Paris! This city is actually quite smaller than most people think. You can walk from the most eastern part of Paris to the most western part of Paris in just an hour and a half! However, there are also easier and faster ways to get around, like taking the metro or the bus. I have a pass called a Navigo, which is an unlimited transportation pass that I pay for monthly. This way I can ride the metro or bus as much as I'd like around Paris. I can also use it to rent a bike to ride around Paris. 

How did I feel when I tried this way of getting around?:

Sometimes the metro can be very busy in the morning. I used to take the metro everyday to school because I believed it to be the most efficient way to get me from my dorm to school.
