    Seine piekniek

    September 24, 2017 in France ⋅ ⛅ 21 °C

    Isabel love mos 'n stukkie piekniek en veral as sy soos n erg franse meisie met twee brode onder die arm kan stap om te gaan piekniek hou iewers.

    Oppad na die piekniek spot toe, op die Notre Dame eiland in die Seine rivier stap ons verby 'n plek waar duisende slotte teen brug reëlings vas gemaak is glo om mense se liefde vir mekaar te bewys.

    Ons het so lekker geëet dat ek skoon uitgepass het vir 'n middag slapie op die gras voor ons langs die rivier gaan sit en sjampers drink het.

    Wat 'n epic naweek sover!

    It's up and up in Paris

    November 4, 2015 in France ⋅ ⛅ 14 °C

    After an early night we made up for lost sleep and woke around 6:30am. After our lunch yesterday we didn't have dinner so needed some breakfast. We found a place that had 2 coffees, 2 orange juice, 2 crossaints and 2 half baguettes with jam for €15. Having filled a hole we set off for Notre Dame. Being around 8:30 there was no line in sight so we walked through then waited a bit for the towers to open and met some fellow brisbanites inline. €8.50 to climb and there was no lift like the Eiffel tower. Feeling the burn we enjoyed the view from the top before making our way down and off to the Arc De Triomphe. So firstly, I broke our Euro Trip 2010 golden rule: don't climb anything and secondly we decided to then climb the Arc? Well aren't we smart cookies. If you do decide to climb something in Paris the Arc is great. It's interesting to watch the traffic but it also gives great views over Paris. Lunch was a chicken and salad baguette for me and roll for B. Plus a chocolate éclair to share. Back to the hotel to relax before our Saint Germain food tour. Three hours well spent getting bread, meats, cheeses, salami, chocolate and learning about these things in French culture. We then enjoyed them all with wine at a small wine shop.Read more

    Photos look great. Looks a bit wet and chilly. CJ

    Bonjour Paris

    November 3, 2015 in France ⋅ ⛅ 12 °C

    The Eurostar was quite simple to use with immigration and security and it ran with military presision. After sitting in carriage three for 3 minutes we realised we needed carriage 2 and swiftly changed. The journey to Paris was quick - 2 hours 20 minutes but the channel tunnel was almost a non event (sorry James). We arrived in Paris and after a quick ticket debacle (machine only taking card but not ours...we found a cash accepting machine) we were on the metro to Odeon near our hotel. We found the hotel and yes our room was ready! It's quaint and has everything we need plus a cute balcony to top it off. We wandered for a bit and had lunch - 3 course set menu for €15 plus some rose wine of course. It was really quite good and a great start to French food. The French seem pretty friendly and like our limited french. Off to see B's relative quasimodo next. The line was long so we just admired it for today. Now off to the Eiffel tower and another long line. It took us an hour to reach the top, not too bad really. We just went to the second floor as B was more than happy at that level (well not happy but could tolerate it). We had some hot chocolates while up there (€7 for two with cream....only it wasn't real cream it was delicious). Starting to become weary we headed for the hotel. We had planned to go out this evening but we are buggered. Paris will be waiting tomorrowRead more

    Métro-Station Châtelet, Pont Neuf

    November 22, 2018 in France ⋅ 🌫 3 °C

    Mit der Métro fahre ich bis zur Station Châtelet, wo ich nochmals umsteigen muss. Umsteigen? Nein, lieber ganz aussteigen. Ich habe ja genügend Zeit, um noch kurz an die Seine zu gehen.

    Und so laufe ich die paar Meter zum Flussufer und über die Brücke Pont Neuf. Auf der Brücke steht ein Obdachloser (aka Clochard), der heisse Maroni verkauft. Ich kaufe ihm eine Portion ab und verspeise damit heute meine erste feste Nahrung (das Joghurt zum Frühstück zählt nicht). Sie sind teilweise verkohlt, teilweise noch nicht gar und somit völlig überteuert. Aber auf dem improvisierten Ofen in seinem umfunktionierten Einkaufswagen hätte ich sie vielleicht auch nicht besser rösten können.

    Nun denn, Zeit weiterzugehen, weiterzufahren. Ich gehe also zurück zur Mëtro-Station und suche in diesem dreidimensionalen Irrgarten meinen Perron. Die Ausschilderung ist nicht sehr hilfreich, eher verwirrend, aber schliesslich gelingt es mir, und ich kann weiterfahren.

    A quick British visit

    November 3, 2015 in France ⋅ ⛅ 13 °C

    Yes, the remaining 10 hours of that flight did eventually pass. We arrived at London Heathrow 20 minutes early...which was then spent in line at immigration (1.5 hours...they do say the Brits like to queue!). The immigration officer was quite interested to know what B's baking specialities were and then we were off to the tube to buy an Oyster card each and load them with credit to use when we come back at the end of November. We were soon at our one night stay in London before taking the Eurostar the next morning. Both exhausted we went to Pizza Express for dinner - the calzone for B and chicken salad for me. It came to £31 including a drink each. Pricey but we were happy. We were tucked in bed by 8pm and woke to no jetlag and an exciting day traveling to Paris.Read more

    Yippee 1.5 hours queuing. Can't wait. Good that you woke with no jet lag. Enjoy Paris.

    Paris strolling

    November 5, 2015 in France ⋅ ⛅ 17 °C

    Today we had crossaints and coffees at Eric Kayser (quite a popular boulangerie) followed by a stroll to the Louvre and through the Jardin De Tuileries. We strolled back to the hotel to get ready for lunch. After a 15 minute walk we got to Les Bouquinistes restaurant. This was our "splurge" meal in Paris. The restaurant is owned by Guy Savoy who is very big in the restaurant industry in Paris. It must be famous people eating day! We chose this restaurant based on location and price (at the lower end of fancy.... Some three course lunches in Paris go for €500 a head. Let's just say this was not in that league...A measly € 45 each) We both had pumpkin soup and slow cooked beef. Fig dessert for me, rice pudding for B. The meals were really well done. Not the best meal I've ever had but you couldn't fault it. The champagne and wine also went down well. Another stroll lead us to a river cruise and after that Sainte Chapelle awed us for a while. As the day was getting on we opted for banana and Nutella crepes on our stroll back to the hotel. A nap for me and some reading for B followed by dinner at a French burger place €30 two burgers, two softdrinks and some hand cut chips. B thinks it's the best burger he's ever had. French meat is very high quality! Tomorrow sees us in a new town. Bonne Soirée (good evening)Read more
