STATUE OF LIBERTY

















The statue of liberty! If you payed attention in history class you might know that it was given to the United States from France as a gift. The statue was constructed by Gustave Eiffel (yes, he's also the one who constructed the Eiffel tower). When we arrived on a boat to the island, I actually thought the statue would be a bit taller, but it was smaller than expected.. If you know the background details why it was built etc. it's so fascinating that this is the landmark of the city. I actually also bought a little statue for my room as a reminder of this amazing memory I made on this island and ofc of this incredible city + skyline! Definitely worth a visit! xx
