    Sightseeing 1

    June 8, 2019 in France ⋅ 🌬 17 °C

    Notre Dame - der meist besuchte Ort in Paris. Nach dem Brand, teils eingepackt von Gerüstgittern und großflächig abgesperrt. Dann gehts zu Fuß weiter über die Brücke - Ponte des Artes in Richtung Louvre. Von dort fahren wir mit der Metro ins Viertel - Montmatre. Als wir bei der Metro Station Château-Rouge aussteigen, haben wir das Gefühl mitten in Afrika zu sein (Wir sind fast die einzigen Weißen weit und breit). Weiter geht's zur berühmten Basilika Sacré-Cœur. Einfach wunderschön, trotz der vielen Leute. Für unser spätes Mittagessen finden wir dann ums Eck gleich ein feines Restaurant, und das Beste, der zweite Teil des gestrigen Tennis-Match läuft und wir dürfen miterleben wie Thiem, Jokovic schlägt und somit ins Finale einzieht. Super! Nach einem kleinen Rundgang durch Montmarte, zieht es uns noch für einen glutenfreien Lemon Tarte zu Hemlut Newcake. Zum Abschluss genießen wir noch den tollen Ausblick auf den Arc de Triumph von der Champs-Élysées aus. Au revoir Paris!Read more

    Tour d'eiffel und Louvre

    June 6, 2019 in France ⋅ 🌧 11 °C

    Wenn man an Paris denkt, dann denkt man an den Eiffelturm. Ob dieses 324 m hohe und ca. 10,1 Tonnen schwere Wahrzeichen von Paris schön ist, hmm, da gehen die Meinungen auseinander. Doch nachts, zeigt er sich von der schönsten Seite. Nachmittags war gemütliches Tennis schauen im TV, bevor es uns Abends nochmal raus zog. Vom Louvre durch den kl. Triumphbogen über den Park Jardin des Tuileries zum Place de la Concorde (größter Platz von Paris).Read more

    Arrivée à Paris - Ankunft in Paris

    June 5, 2019 in France ⋅ 🌧 15 °C

    Dieses Mal machen wir unsere Reisekilometer zu Land und nicht in der Luft - mit ÖBB und TGV gehts ab nach Frankreich. Nach guten 8 Stunden erreichen wir das verregnete Paris. Gut das unsere Airbnb Wohnung uns gemütlich empfängt. Wir freuen uns auf ein paar gemütliche Tage.Read more

    Roland Garros - French open

    June 7, 2019 in France ⋅ ⛅ 15 °C

    Heute ist unser Tennis-Tag. Nach einem feinen Brunch machen wir uns auf ins Stade Roland Garros. Nach den Blicken auf einige Outside- Courts, dürfen wir zu unserer Überraschung den letzten Part des Halbfinales der Damen (Barty-Anisimova) gratis ansehen. Danke das war toll! Das erste Halbfinale der Männer verfolgen wir dann auf den großen Screens, bevor es ernst wird und wir endlich im Court Philippe-Chatrier Platz nehmen können. 1h 28 min. durften wir das Duell zw. Djokovic / Thiem genießen, bis es dann leider für diesen Tag, wegen schlechtem Wetter unterbrochen werden musste. Am nächsten Tag, da unsere Karten nur für diesen Tag Gültigkeit hatten, haben wir den restlichen Teil des Spiels im Restaurante am Montemartre verfolgt. Thiem
    siegte in 5 Sätzen 👏.

    August 8 in France ⋅ ☀️ 34 °C

    Leider geht es heute schon wieder zurück. Der Regen der letzten Nacht macht den Abschied etwas leichter. Wir werden aber sicher noch mal ins Vendée kommen!

    Paris 10th - 12th

    May 11, 2018 in France ⋅ ☁️ 15 °C

    It’s a sunny morning here in Paris and I’m up bright and early... other two not so much! Anyway I’m going to make the most of my time here so after getting ready I decided to go shopping 😁 There are some really nice places along the street near our hotel including a wine shop, patisserie and flower shop. First stop.. wine! The man in the shop was very helpful and talked me through which type of wine he would recommend and the flavours etc... I just agreed and had no idea what he was on about! Next stop... patisserie where I bought 2 chocolate éclairs and a giant macaron for Leah who has been desperate to try one! After buying the nicest looking cakes I gave the flowers a miss after deciding they were a bit too hard to get home on a plane. Back to the hotel I went where the other two had woken up and were greeted with cakes which we ate later on in the day!

    First item on our list of things to do today was the Eiffel Tower. Let’s be honest you can’t go to Paris and not see the Eiffel Tower!!! Katie was amazed at how big it is in real life 😂 It’s a shame you can’t walk under it anymore as they have fenced off a large area around it. We decided to be very French and go and buy baguettes from a local patisserie and eat them on the Champs-Elysees looking at the eiffel tower... all very nice.

    Next thing to see... the Arc de Triomphe. We walked about 30 minutes next to the river and up a street of shops to find it. Once their we were highly entertained at the madness of the roundabout surrounding it with cars going every direction narrowly avoiding one another. This is one roundabout I would never want to drive!

    We then started to head back towards the Eiffel Tower via Paris’ oxford street! Looking for somewhere to get a drink we decided this street probably wasn’t the best place to look as prices were extortionate. Passing Louis Vuitton we spotted 3 Lamborghini’s and Ferrari’s that we could only dream we would own one day😂 Before we knew it we were back to the riverside and found a nice bar where we had a relaxing drink in the sun.

    Time was getting on and so we decided to head back towards where we were staying. After finding a few more shops to have a nosy in we went back to the hotel to rest our feet for an hour and get ready to go out again for the evening.

    Along near our hotel we found a lovely little French looking restaurant where we had some French wine and some amazing food!!! One thing we all love about France is how they give you bread before your main meal comes out and we even got given a glass of popcorn! We sat here chatting and enjoying our time in Paris long into the night until we decided it was getting late and we should probably get some rest.

    We have our last train journey tomorrow :( :) Mixed emotions... sad that it’s nearly the end, dreading the 6 hours sat there (although 6 hours goes fast now to us), very very excited that we are going to Spain and also extremely happy that we don’t have to get on another train!!!!😁😁😁

    Ville-d'Avray, France

    June 10, 2018 in France ⋅ ⛅ 22 °C

    Sundays are the best day for biking. I passed no less than THREE farmers markets and yes, I stopped at every one. Flaky, warm, buttery pain (bread) au chocolat. Delicious, crispy, burn-your-mouth hot potatoes. And, a sausage so scrumptious I forgot to take a picture.Read more

    Paris - Shower

    October 2, 2015 in France ⋅ ☀️ 14 °C

    Our apartment had what I later learned is a normal/traditional French shower: no mount for the head, no curtain. You have to kneel in the tub and get wet, turn off the water to soap up, then rinse off. Very water conserving but really awkward and not very pleasant!Read more

    Paris Day Two

    October 1, 2015 in France ⋅ 🌙 11 °C

    Spent the day in the Montmartre district of Paris which used to be it's own little town around a hill outside Paris's walls where the stuffy Parisians could go to to let their hair down , this is where the Moulin Rouge is, where Van Gogh and Picasso spent a bit of their lives and where the Church of Sacre Crouer is with a painter's square near by.

    We started with a great free (with tips) tour of the area with a local Monmartre-an (who prefer not to be cslled Parisian) who took us through all the local side streets and dodged all the crowds while pointing out all the intetesting parts of the area which is how I got a baguette from the bakery that won the seats for best baguette in 2015 which means they win the right to providr for the French President breakfast for a year.

    Oh and we ate at a Tibetan restaurant for dinner once I verified its street cred :p We also had coffee at CB cafe which as it turns out stood for "cooka burra" cafe and was Australiasian themed so we're kinda mixing it up a little foodwise

    Paris Day Three

    October 2, 2015 in France ⋅ 🌙 10 °C

    The Palace of Versailles! We started with a guided tour of the Kings private apartments that are not open to the public and are even kept shut out from the sunlight, when people aren't in the rooms , to prevent fading. Each desk is worth well over a million euro as was the China. We also got to sit in the grand Versailles opera house.
    We then used Rick Steves audio guide aa we walked through the public chambers and the hall of mirrors.
    We ended by going over the grounds of the palaces which is also sprinkled with Marie Antoinettes Mini palaces
