Two and a bit hours on the Eurostar and now in Paris ❤️ although the Queen had to line up with all the other plebs and wait almost 2 hours for a taxi to drive me under 5 kms to the hotel 🏨. Sweaty Betty had sweat running from my bum cheeks to my shoes 🤣 did not go out or look at anything as minimal sleep had caught up with me 😱 9 hours last night so rearing to go !Read more
So we all know the rules on the mini bar … do not under any circumstances TOUCH the mini bar (my 🐵🙈🙉 can confirm that rule they have heard it 100000 times !) so the mini bar here is partly tricky ! Nespresso machine ✅ well that’s free , bottle of Evian on the little table with a bottle opener one would assume is free ✅ a as bad next to the Nespresso machine a rather innocuous looking small block of Alain Ducasse Le Chocolat weighing 60 gm. Almost unwrapped and ate that beast in one mouthful due to its position next to the free Nespresso machine … for some reason I thought hold on lard arse let’s just check this baby out on the “free” or not “free” mini bar list … thank god I did 🤣🤣 €14 which currently translates to $21.18 AUD 😱😱😱😱😱 now that is my line in the sand (Iceman are you hearing me ?) old habits die hard … never ever touch the mini bar even if it’s sitting next to free stuff 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣😂Read more
Galleries Lafayette .. such a beautiful shopping building ! No €€€ spent here ! Mastered the Met 🚊 spent the day wandering all the little streets. Weather a bit like home ! Warm amd sunny one minute then raining the next ! Almost need a pair of jeans and long sleeve top - which I don’t have !Read more
Just in case you thought I was living it up. In Paris with a maid and a chauffeur … washing still needs to be done !
Finally made it to Monets garden in Givenchy. Literally sprinted between trains .. fastest I have run in months !
Musee D’ Orsay ❤️ my fav ! Gaudi and Impressionism Exhibitions. Note the painting of the naked woman with the clothed men ? Totally scandalous of its time .. not because of the nude lady sitting with clothed men 😱 women were only allowed to be painted naked as gods and mythical creatures - not just a female sitting in a park naked amongst clothed men 🤣🤣🤣🤔Read more
Palace of Versailles - the nice me says omg such amazing beautiful opulence that one can only imagine … the nasty me says omg the world or country is crumbling around your gold plated feet 🦶🤣🤣🤣 no time for analysis tho just pretty pictures !
Oh I also wasn’t watching where I was walking (reading the guidebook ) tripped on a step and went down like 10 tonne tessie 🙈😱🤣🤣🤣 I hoped no one saw but was seen by a husband and wife who said omg are you ok ?? Nothing to see here kids keep moving .. Big girl is ok keep walking 🤣🤣🤣 slashed my palm on the rocks, cuts on my knee and elbow and bled through my white linen pants on my knee 😂😂😂😂 EMBARRASSING 😳 I had to go the pharmacy so she could pick the stones out of my knee and palm .. too tight to pay a doctor 🤣🤣🤣Read more
