Schooltrip to Paris

Last week I was in Paris for four days. Not completely for fun, as it was a schooltrip, but it was a great visit nevertheless.
Paris is always beautiful and we saw and did some great things. And in the end we managed to get all our students back home safely and in once piece, so that also makes it a success :-)
I was not able to make as much photographs as I would have liked to, but I was not there as a tourist, I was there as a teacher, making sure the students were safe etc. Quite a different matter! And in such a large group (50 students and 5 teachers) you cannot constantly stop whenever you want to.

Despite that, I did manage to make some photographs and here are some for you to enjoy.

The Notre Dame is one of my favorite churches. 

The Eiffeltowers is lit beautifully during the evening. 

Versailles is very beautfiful and impressive. This is just a part of the palace. 

The hall of mirrors in Versailles.
Very crowded, but you can still see how impressive it must have been. 

Of course we went to Montmartre and saw the Moulin Rouge.
Small thing, actually. 

The Sacré Coeur is a strange church, I never really can decide if I like it or not. 

Centre Pompidou, next to Les Halles
in the middle of an area with many shops and lots to see and do.

The French flag in the Arc de Triomphe, over the grave of the Unknown Soldier. 


  1. What age are the students? Because 50 is a lot. Glad you survived. (And love the pictures of Paris!)

    1. Thank you! The students are 15 years old, it was my form group and another group. So yes, 50 15yo, in Paris. But it all went well! And they also loved Paris.

      Kind regards,

  2. Ooo, how fun! Perhaps more for the kids than you teachers who had to keep them under control. Haha!

    I love the shot taken of the Eiffel Tower, unusual angle.

    1. Thank you, I try to make certain photographs a little bit more original and therefore more interesting, at least, that is what I aim at :-)

      It was fun for us as well, although the responsibility never leaves you, you are working 24h a day, 4 days in a row.
      But Paris is well worth is!

      Kind regards,
