    My very own Steve McQueen

    July 29, 2017 in France

    Finally Paul buys a pair of sunglasses and of course they are limited edition - he is very happy that's the main thing.

    Our stay in Paris is coming to an end, so today, Saturday, we decided to have lunch again at our favourite restaurant in Paris: Jaja. A little courtyard gem that we found on our previous trip. They have divine food and its a little bit different from what is on offer at the usual cafes. So for dessert we decided to have gelato. I have been planning to have it since we arrived but as I have been limiting myself to one serve of gelato per city I had to be strategic about it. This place has a line of people everyday to enjoy their delights. We had an amazing artisan gelato: vanilla and caramel.

    We have been taking it slow these last few days. Just going for walks around the many different areas and seeing what catches our eye. Great buildings, fantastic Lego demonstrations and quirky fountains just to name a few.

    Oxford to Paris via London

    September 14, 2015 in France

    Another full day of travel, all their way from Pxford , through London and I to the heart of Paris.
    We woke bright and early to finish packing and get to our car for our early train to London. Dropping the car off went without a hitch and out train was on time but slow to get I to London. We transfered through Paddington to Kings Cross and St Pancras international train station. Had all of my baggage inspected as a had a small hunting knife that I bought in Greece.. what a hassle! But got there in the end and through passport control with no worries.
    The Eurostar zoomed through the British countryside, the channel tunnel and up into France with ease. It was misty and raining in France but by the time we got into Paris it had cleared up. A quick commute through the Paris underground and we emerged next to Notre Dame for our quick walk to the Isle de Saint-Louis on the Seine river; we traipsed up a few spiral staircases and into our pokey little French flat.
    After a quick sorting out of rooms we went to find some late lunch and do a little shopping.

    Paris shops and first night.

    September 16, 2015 in France

    Went for a quick walk through the shops on the Isle which was nice. Lots of bread and cheese and wine and chocolate. Dinner was a quiet affair of bread and cheese, oh and a crepe before hand of course. Was frustrated yet again with my travelling companions so went for a late night walk. It was lovely seeing the Notre Dame all lit up next to the Seine.

    Paris

    September 20, 2014 in France

    Amour amour ... die Stadt der Liebe. Hier gibt es so viel zu entdecken. Wir waren ganze 3 Tage dort und haben leider nicht alles sehen können. Eines unserer ersten Ziele war natürlich der Eiffelturm. Wir haben jeweils die Treppen genutzt da es zum einen schneller ging und zum anderen man ein besseres Gefühl für das Bauwerk bekommt. Natürlich haben wir auch den Louvre besucht auch wenn das Bild der Mona Lisa ein weniger kleiner als gedacht ausfällt. Die Aussicht vom Triumphbogen aus war auch sehr schön, vor allem der Blick auf den Eiffelturm. Ein absolutes Highlight war aber der Besuch der Pariser Katakomben, ein "Massengrab" unterhalb der Straßen. Für den romantischen Part sorgt auf jeden Fall die Gegend rund um Sacre Coeur, alleine hier kann man locker einen Tag verbringen.Read more
