"Treasures of europe" SHARKFIN's Profile

For the first time traveller

When we decided to visit europe for the first time in our life , I did not know what to do except booking a tour . However when i stumble onto the virtual tourist site and read every questions asked in the paris forum, visit members web page i began to have clearer picture of what i want to do and how to go about doing it . With every question posted by others i began to learn and grow and eventually began asking question of my own . From just knowing that there is eiffel tower , arc de triomphe and Mona Lisa , I found out abt Monmartre , St chapelle , latin Quarter .. etc eventually when its time for us to leave for paris i have the entire trip all figured and plan out. I would like to thanks those members who were patience and helpful in answering all my dumb queries; members like Guyon and hamster_huey and many others . I have recently travelled to paris , lucern, venice , florence and rome and i will be putting my travel pictures and share my travel experience to others . I wish i will be able to help others like how the members of this website has help me

My travel plan

Before i arrived in Paris , i reserved the Blue Van Shuttle , that will bring us from the airport to the hotel doorstep at 14.50eur per person. However if we were to take the regional train from the airport to city , it will cost us a total of about 15 eur but as others has mentioned in the forum , carrying the luggauge up the stairs of metro can be tough. The blue van was waiting for us when we exit the airport and there were only another 2 passengers in the van and we were the first to be drop off .
