    Bei Gisele in Paris

    August 21, 2020 in France ⋅ ⛅ 28 °C

    Nach etwa 280 Kilometern und nur einem kurzen Stau irgendwo bei Paris bin ich bei Gisele und Adrian angekommen. Die Sorge hier einen Parkplatz zu finden war erstaunlicherweise unbegründet. Nach einer Dusche ging es noch mal eine kleine Runde (8 Kilometer) um den Block.Read more

    Atlantik -> Ville de Neuilly-sur-Marne

    May 8, 2019 in France ⋅ 🌧 12 °C

    Den Campingplatz am Atlantik haben wir in strömenden Regen verlassen. Auf der Piste gab es immer mal wieder Schauer, in Paris ein sattes Gewitter. Jetzt stehen wir auf einem Campingplatz auf einer kleinen Insel in der Marne. Am Himmel grollt schon das nächste Gewitter. Jetzt sind es noch 946 Kilometer bis nach Hause.Read more

    Space, Science & Technology Day

    July 4, 2019 in France ⋅ ☀️ 22 °C

    Not much of an Independence Day here. Hope everyone had a good one back home! Last time I was in Europe on 7.4, Jess and I were in Pisa.

    Since neither of our planned locations opened until 10am, we had a leisurely morning, sleeping until 8am and eating crepes on the street. Train, then bus well out of town to the Air & Space Museum at Le Bourget airport. It was neat seeing mostly French planes, with a smattering of foreign planes as well.. The kids enjoyed the simulators and I particularly liked the deconstructed planes, seeing the inside of a 747, Concorde and even Soviet ICBM as you enter, which is a mind blower.

    Next, we took a bus down to the Science museum, munching snacks along the way. There were exhibits on high speed rail, robotics, Argonaut sub, a small aquarium, and more. Upon leaving , we look the Metro back into town. The kids and Tom went back to the burger place they ate at while I was in Lyon. I didn't feel like a burger, so I headed back to our flat for a battery backup to charge my dead phone and I grabbed something quick at a falafel place across from our place.

    Quickly jetted down to the river to see Sainte Chappelle, one of the places I really wanted to revisit before we left. Only 30 minutes before close, there is a long line. Fortunately, the last hurrah with the Museum Pass allows me to skip the entire line and I'm inside in only five minutes. Having been before, I skipped everything other than the stained glass, which is unbelievably gorgeous. I took a number of photos, which really can't to it justice, before heading back to rejoin the three guys.

    R predictably enamoured with the Lego store. I purchase a womens national team jersey at the Nike Store - had I known, I would have visited before heading to the match! Tom went off to unsuccessfully look for clothes, while L headed back to our place to relax.

    Afterward, R and I headed back down toward the river to hit tourist shops in search for the perfect Paris had for him - his third of the trip, one for each stop. Finally found one. My feet are killing me, it is hot, and I'm exhausted. R has been jonesing to ride one if the electric Lime scooters, so I grab one and we manage to balance together all the way back to our area. He rides it solo half a block and back, shortening the entire way.

    At long last, we are back. I shower and browbeat the kids into packing stuff up. They don't understand why since we have a 'whole entire day'more and keep asking what we're doing tomorrow. Little do you know, kids!!

    The Longest Night

    July 3, 2018 in France ⋅ ☀️ 18 °C

    I have used the phrase “the longest night” in the past to metaphorically declare I have lost sleep. This time it is literal. The last sun I saw was around 7pm last night. It is now 12 noon and the sun has now caught us again. Sure, I’m using Singapore time whilst flying over Europe but, technically, it has been dark for 17 hours. That is one long eclipse.Read more

    It was 1972, and yesterday.

    May 14, 2017 in France ⋅ ☁️ 13 °C

    It's only happened twice. The first time was 1972. I'm in the back yard at home in Greensborough. A thunderous roar breaks and rolls across the sky. I look up to see and wonder, for Concorde has come to Melbourne. Supersonic passenger flight had (almost) arrived.
    The second time was yesterday. The air and space museum outside Paris has TWO Concordes, the first and the last. I'm eight years old again, lost in wonder as we wander inside and out.
    That was even above the already awesome collection at the museum: whole satellites, rockets, helicopters, 100 years of planes.... A real treat.

    This was a stop as we headed out to northern France. The Air and Space Museum highlights many French achievements. Rocketry and satellites, aircraft, helicopters, as well as the starring Concordes.

    Premiere Classe Roissy

    April 27, 2017 in France ⋅ ⛅ 10 °C

    Now that I'm learning to speak Spanish, when I speak French I realize that I actually have a fairly good grasp of French. Tom and I spent some time speaking mostly just French to each other as I splinted my feet in the hotel. Later, while I read, he ubered 5 minutes to the little town of Roissy to pick up groceries for dinner and to see the cathedral there.Read more
