A trip to Paris for the winners of the International children’s art competition ‘Golden Easel’

July 14, 2019

Lviv – Kyiv – Paris – Disneyland – the trip was long, but worth going.
When I got off the plane in Paris, I saw a lot of people with disabilities and was impressed by the conditions created for them. The cleanliness of the premises, streets in Paris and in Disneyland also surprised me. There were people from all over the world. I didn’t understand a lot, but all of them were very friendly.
Disneyland turned out to be huge. The extent and amount of entertainment in this fantastic town were unbelievable. There were beautiful fairy-tale buildings, many attractions for both children and adults on its territory. Several rides were scary even to me.
Apart from a lot of attractions, the next day, after a good night’s sleep, we had to cover distance of 17500 meters – this is 28538 steps in a day. And in Paris itself – 20784 steps; there we were able to see the architecture of the European capital: the Eiffel Tower, the Arc de Triomphe and others. The great thanks to Olena Demchuk – the sponsor of the trip to Disneyland and a wonderful company of ‘Golden Easel’ finalist – Pavlo, Dmytro, Daryna, Victoriia, Sofiia and Yevhen. Everyone felt great under the care of Ms. Olena and Ms. Veronica.
