In Gulliver's Travels, the main character, Lemuel Gulliver is initially sailing to the South Seas. However, a storm blows him off course and he lands on the island of Lilliput, a land inhabited by people 6 inches tall. He briefly returns home to England, then heads out on another journey and is blown off course again. This time he lands in Brobdingnag, where people are all 60 feet tall. After another pit stop in England, Gulliver ends up marooned on an island near Vietnam, then gets picked up by the floating island of Laputa. People on Laputa are normal sized but entirely impractical. Then Gulliver travels to Glubbdubdrib, an island where he meets ghosts, and Luggnagg, the home of immortals. Gulliver ends up in Japan, sails home to England, then leaves again, this time as the captain of a ship. However, he doesn't prove popular as a captain and his crew maroons him on an island inhabited by intelligent, noble horses called Houyhnhnms. Finally, he returns home to England and his family, much changed by all his travels.
So in brief he travels to:
small island near Vietnam

Amusez-vous bien à Paris.
going by experience it would be 'the metro' .
The Paris Métro is an electric underground railway system; the term metro is also used in other countries to define a rapid transport system, not necessarily underground.

Acording to a reserch, 97,5% of the tourists would like to go to Brazil again.
It can get cold there. Due to the Gulf Stream, much of the west of Europe has milder winter weather than other parts of the world on the same latitude. So Paris would be milder than other parts of the world, but it still can be cold there.
Paris is the capital of France.
The Eurostar takes 2 hours 15 minutes between London and Paris. There is approximately one train per hour in each direction.
Eurostar is the brand name of the company running high speed trains London-Paris and London-Lille-Brussels through the Channel Tunnel.
Eurostar uses the stations: St. Pancras (London), Gare du Nord (Paris), Bruxelles Midi (Brussels) and Lille Europe.
Currently these are the only passenger trains operating through the tunnel.
Times vary from airport to airport, from air carrier to air carrier and even from day to day. A general guideline is 1 1/2 hours before departure for US domestic travel when checking bags. 2 hours before departure for International departures. For major holiday travel, add another 30 minutes, just to be sure. If you have no bags to check-in, most carriers now have some form of online check-in or airport based kiosk (self service) check-in that might allow you shave some time off your check-in.

SETE - Société d'Exploitation de la Tour Eiffel. This is a limited public-private company which holds the franchise until 2015. The City of Paris owns 59.9 percent, and various finance houses the rest (except for 0.01 percent belonging to the Paris Tourism and Congress Office). Separate companies run the souvenir stalls, the restaurants and biffets, the telescopes, the ATMs and the guided tours. Profits are about 4 million euros a year (less tax), resulting from a revenue of 66 million, of which 24 go to personnel, 9 to the City of Paris in royalties, 14 to paying of debts. These are th#e figures I can find; the rest, presumably, goes on maintenance and refitting, of which there is a lot.
