Martin (10, Miskolc)

Martin added some flair to the standard "I would like to travel to Paris" wishes, because, instead of the the usual Disneyland visit he wanted to see a Paris Saint-Germain game in their home stadium.

The flight was thi first magical experience for Martin since he had never flown before.

The next day started off with rain, even the top of the Eiffel tower was covered in clouds, so Martin spent the morning discovering the Louvre.
Mona Lisa's smile is still mysterious, but she quite reticent, hiding behind bulletproof glass, and cordons.
By the time we left the museum the sun started to come out. MAGIC!

In the afternoon we headed out to watch the game. A huge crowd was streaming towards the stadium.
Martin received his coveted fan scarf and took his seat in the Parc des Princes stadium.
Although Neymar had broken his leg recently, and the team just had been eliminated from the Champions League, we saw a fantastic game againts Metz.

Paris Saint-Germain beat Metz 5-0.
The fans went wild and they were celebrating in the streets until the wee hours. The French press was also happy about the resurrection of the team.
Martin had hoped to see lots of goals at the game and his wish was completely fulfilled! Maybe it was also Magic Lamp's doing?

The next day the weather was sunny and clear, so we managed to see a few famous sights. We visited the Arc de Triomphe, then walked over to the Eiffel tower. We also spotted so many cool cars! Martin did not miss any of those awesome Aston Martins, Lamborghinis, Ferraris, and Maseratis. We took the elevator to the very top of the tower and did not want to leave until dusk.
While we were up there, even saw a marriage proposal. The sight of the falling rose petals was very romantic from above.
Paris is definitely worth a game!
