Alpadia testimonial - Maren

I very much enjoyed my stay in Paris. We went to the Eiffel Tower, Jardin du Luxembourg and to Versailles. My favourite moment since I have arrived was at the Eiffel Tower because of the amazing view over Paris, the houses and gardens – it was super cool! I enjoyed staying at the camp because there were lots of really friendly people and I made many new friends. We will stay in touch and have already exchanged phone numbers. I will ask my parents if I can come back next year.
