  THE avenue....
by Colzy

What can you say about this famous avenue that hasn't already been said?? I'll give it a go by recounting my own experience there....

Apparently this avenue became popular in the mid-1800s by the endless flow of young ladies wanting to show off their finest fashions. It is still a fashion hub with many famous outlets situated here. As you may imagine, my clothes did not lend me particularly well to the Paris scene. When you are a tourist comfortable shoes are a must and thus fashion is sacrificed for smelly sneakers.

Probably try to avoid the coffee there as it tends to be quite expensive but do stop to take in the wonderful atomsphere of this avenue. I promise you as you make your descent you will be thinking 'Oh my goodness, I can't believe I am walking down the Champs Elysees in PARIS!!' It is a wonderful feeling I assure you.....

Address: Champs Elysees
Directions: I'm sure you will find it by yourself without my terrible directions, if you make it to the Arc de Triomphe then you are very close!!
