    Dinner at Chez Leveque

    April 16, 2017 in France ⋅

    I had passed this eclectic little restaurant two doors from the lovely Hotel Esmeralda and looked at it curiously as it didn't look like much from the outside. I asked the hotel owner for a recommendation and this is where he said to go. Inside the restaurant was small with a vibrant atmosphere and the menu was blackboard style all in French. The friendly waitress translated for me but in the end I asked her to choose for me.

    My starter was a pork terrine on toast with melted goat cheese. It was delicious and the salad it sat on had a very nice dressing. Next was a perfectly cooked medium rare duck breast sitting on a bed of creamy mashed potatoes, also very good. The sauce was very tasty (I could hear Manu saying ahh the sauce) and I really enjoyed the meal.

    As I left the restaurant I used their bathroom and to my delight found it had a shelf of paint pots and brushes for you to paint your own tile! I spent far too long reading other people's and left without doing my own but I will try and visit again and leave my mark!

    Hotel De Ville

    October 13, 2015 in France ⋅

    When it came to buildings, the French did everything big and grand. This is the City Administration Building. Originally completed in 1357. Reconstructed in 1892. Our tour guide, Dennis, was wonderful. He was with us the whole and was a wealth of knowledge about everything we saw and French history. He is the one with the shaved head and glasses.Read more

    Paris

    September 29, 2018 in France ⋅ ☀️ 57 °F

    Saying farewell to Bordeaux we boarded a train for Paris. This was not the super fast TGV; we did make brief stops in Poitiers and Angoulême. Still, it only took three hours and the train was very comfortable. The scenery on the train was pretty ordinary. The scenery from our hotel in Paris, however, was fantastic. The Paris Pullman is located close to the Eiffel Tower. In fact we had a partial view from our rooms. Our first goal after unpacking was lunch. We found a wonderful restaurant called Beaujolais that served great Italian food! We still had time to show Pat and Mike a few sites. We started by walking to the Eiffel Tower for a closeup view. Then we took the metro to the Arc de Triomphe. There was some special veterans celebration going on--lots of people and old soldiers. We did a little strolling down the Champs-Elysées before returning to our hotel for the evening.Read more

    Paris, france

    September 28, 2018 in France ⋅ ⛅ 17 °C

    Quelle grande ville!! 2 jours de visites non-stop pour prendre avantage de notre Paris pass. Ou commencer.. !! Premierement 2.5 jours a Paris n'est vraiment pas assez! Je crois quil faudrait un 4 jours afin de visiter tranquillement. Mais bon - nous avons compacter le tout et sommes contentes avec nos visites! Nous avons pris le bus ‘hop on hop off’ qui nous a permit de visiter plusieurs choses! Deux églises (Sacre Coeur et Notre-Dame) Arc de Triomphe, jardins trocado, petit palais et grand palais, tour Eiffel, tour Montparnasse, chateau Versailles et ses jardins, musée Louvre(un dixième lol). Nous avons aussi fait le bateaux sur canals et un beau wine tasting dans les caves du louvre. Nous avons mange de la gelato en se promenant auprès de les canals. Wow nous aurions pourrions être ici pour plus longtemps! Les Parisiens en general on ete tres gentils avec nous mais tu as les typiques qui te coupent en ligne ou ne se donne pas la peine de te faire un sourire. Aussi - il n'y a pas de toilettes nul part et quand tu en trouve il faut payer!? Une chose - nous realisons a quel point nous sommes bien et choyees dans notre pays!

    Nous avons terminer notre sejour a Paris avec un petit picnic en avant de la tour eiffel et sommes presentment en route pour la Belgique. Je pense bien d'y revenir un jour Paris pour faire les choses unpeu moins touristique et juste vivre leur quotidien (cafes, magasinage, restos, promenade a velo).

    Bruges- nous arrivons!!

    Stadtrundgang in Paris

    November 14, 2004 in France ⋅

    Bei der Begleitung eines Schüleraustausches bleibt den Lehrkräften in der Regel wenig Zeit für eigene Unternehmungen.

    Wenn sich eine dieser seltenen Gelegenheiten bietet, muss man sie nutzen. So konnte ich einen schönen Novembertag damit verbringen mir verschiedenste Pariser Sehenswürdigkeiten anzusehen.Read more

    Paris, France

    October 1, 2016 in France ⋅

    O avião chegou atrasado de Lisboa, tenho que mudar de aeroporto em Paris, mas o tempo é tão curto que nem arisco ir a casa de banho, foi mais de uma hora de autocarro aflita. Só descanso quando sentar no avião para mais de 10 horas de voo, a adrenalina da viagem começou.

    And then we walked ... a lot #2

    August 22, 2017 in France ⋅

    Leaving the Arc de Triomphe we headed down towards the Seine and the Eiffel tower. We had a brief stop in the Jardins du Trocadero for a bite to eat and then continued on to the tower. Any thoughts of actually visiting the tower quickly evaporated when we saw the lines and the millions of people queuing… we took photos and then headed off to the Bir-Hakim Metro.Read more

    A word - or 2 - about the Metro

    August 22, 2017 in France ⋅

    We have certainly got good value from our metro ticket today (7,50 Euro for an all day zone 1 and 2 ticket). The Metro system is large and rather complex but it has got us where we need to go in a timely manner. There are trains on lines A, B, C and D run by RER and then there are the “metro” lines which seem to share stations with the trains a lot of the time and range from industrial feeling metal and concrete structures deep underground linked with long tiled tunnels to elevated platforms and tracks. The RER have actual trains while the Metro seems to be a train/bus hybrid – they run on tracks and have 3 carriages but have tyres. They seem to turn up about every 4 minutes and go like a bat out of hell.Read more

    Paris @ night by bike

    August 23, 2017 in France ⋅

    Our next stop was the Dupliex metro station for our Paris by Night Bike tour. We were duly issued with bright red, retro bikes and helmets - optional (Ah yes please if I am going to be riding in Paris traffic – I do prefer my brain intact and the drivers in Paris seem a tad lax about the road rules!!). We headed off to Notre Dame, via the Latin Quarter with stops for interesting information and stories along the way as provided by our cheerful – and possibly entirely manic - Scottish Guide (Jack). One pertained to the guy who did the Gargoyles on Notre Dame – apparently, he REALLY hated his mother in law so the 4th on the left and side is carved in her likeness (an ugly old women in a hat). We stopped for ice cream and then headed back to the Seine via the Louvre (which was pretty impressive that time of night). At the river we boarded a boat an took an lovely trip up and down the river while drinking wine (included) before getting back on our bikes and heading back to the office of Fat Tire Tours with some great views of the illuminated Eiffel tower along the way. It was great fun, the total ride distance was about 13km and I would recommend it as a different way to see Paris – although it was a later night than I expected as it was after midnight when we finally got back to the hostel.Read more
