These photos are from my trip to Paris, France, in July 2009. I was selected to travel with the Sound of America Band my dad went on when he was my age. I was 17. Paris has always been on my bucket list and being able to not only tour Notre Dame but to climb the famous spiral staircase up to see the beautiful city from the top. Everything from the gargoyles to the Rose Window to the acoustics in the cathedral was breathtaking.
