Day 14 - Paris and Final Match

This morning we headed off on a bus tour of Paris.

We were able to see many of the amazing sights including The Bastille, The impressive building of the Louvre, La Opera and the highlight, driving around the Arc de Triomphe!

We finished our tour at a department store, Galleries Lafayette for lunch before making our way to the base of The Eiffel Tower. Unfortunately when we arrived we discovered the security staff were on strike and no one was able to climb the tower. We are all crossing our fingers and toes in hope we are able to climb the tower tomorrow afternoon.

We instead spent the afternoon enjoying the sunshine in Luxembourg Gardens before making our way to our final match of the tour against PUC Feminine FC.

The lovely field overlooked the Paris FC stadium, where we were treated to a delightful post match meal by hosts. The game was played with great intensity and showcased some great football by both teams. Our team spirit and positivity throughout the game was exemplified and the girls finished off their Wanderers football journey with big smiles on their faces.
