We are going to Paris, some place i never really wanted to go but my friend wanted to so here we are now. Paris is the capital and largest city in France. Paris is situated on the river Seine in northern France and is at the heart of France. In 2009-2010 Paris was ranked among the three most important and influential cities in the world, among the first three “European cities pf the future”. There is soo much to do in Paris it is hard to start. of course we are going to visit the Eiffel Tower but we also want to see more thing that are important in Paris. So we went to Disneyland Paris it was soo amazing alot of local said that we should go. Next we went to the Musee d Orsay which is a museum building used to be a railway station. Located on the left bank of the River Seine. It is a very small museum in comparison to the Lourve. But it has a large collection of impressionist and post-impressionist paintings in the world. It was a sight to see, everything was beautiful. After that we just walked around to explore what was in Paris. It was amazing.The per capita of France is 33,300 in 2010

going to iceland

Iceland

sunny

My next stop is in Iceland. Im excited to see what there is for me to do here. Ice land is in a European island country. It is in the North Atlantic ocean on the Mid-Atlantic Ridge. The largest city in Iceland is Reykjavik, with the surrounding areas in the southwestern region of the country being home to some of the national population. The population in Iceland is 320,000. Iceland mainly consists of a plateau characterised by sand fields,mountains,and glaciers. Iceland is very different from everywhere else in the world. Here you can play golf climb a glacies and fish for salmon all in the same day, pretty cool huh. Today me and my friend are feeling very adventerous so we have a big day ahead of us. First since its summer, we plan on going River Rafting. Something I always wanted to do. River rafting operators often offer a choice of routes with different levels pf challenge , for people that have never done it before need to have a training lesson before they start. But we did it once before so we got to do the third level. It was a rush for sure. I love every second of it and would do it again any day. Next we went on a Glacier tour which was pretty awesome. It showed us around Iceland in a fun and excited way!!! Then we went to a Whale watching it was a nice relaxing way to end the day.. The per capita of Iceland is 36,700 in 2010

Time to go to China

Yay China.

51 °F

We are finally in China and it is veryyyy different from any were I ever been.. But I am excited to see what I can get into. I am going to Hung Kong China. China is seen variously as an ancient civilization extending over a large area in East Asia, a nation and a multinational entity. With almost 4,000 years of continuous history, China is one of the worlds oldest civilizations. It possessed one of the most advance societies and economies in the world. In 1949, after major combat ended in the Chinese Civil War which made two states combine into one , calling themself China. China ranges from mostly plateaus and mountains in the west to lower lands in the east. There are almost 7 million people that are crammed into Hong Kong. Hong Kong is a city for skyscrapers but thats not the only thing here. There is also lush countryside and small rural commuities. I am visiting Hong Kong Victoria Peak, which is the highest peak point on the island with amazing views north over the city as well as overr the greener southern slopes down to the South China Sea. Clinging onto the northern slops of the Peak are the prestigious Mid-levels, full of tightly packed, towering blocks of flats. The Mid-levels steep slopes are best negotiated using the Peak tram or the Mid-levels Escalator. Beautiful place to see when you are traveling. Then we went to a theme park that a lot of locals told us about called Ocean Park. It was very fun and a change to what I am use to.The per capita of China is 7,400 in 2010
