    Adapting on the fly...

    September 12, 2017 in France ⋅ ⛅ 17 °C

    When the going gets tough, the tough get going...out of Dodge 😂.

    After 3 days of cycling we really aren't very far from the big city so we left our bikes and panniers behind and headed to Paris 🗼! Another day...or 3... battling the wind and rain didn't sound quite as good as sipping wine in a roadside cafe.

    We still got our distance in ... walking 17 km around the city. Les Invalides monument, Eiffel tower (of course - but just from the ground), Champs-Elysees, Arc de Triomphe. Got lucky twice finding ourselves watching a rain burst while enjoying a beverage. (That either says something about our luck or time spent in cafes 😄).

    Weather is supposed to improve closer to the weekend so we'll spend another day or so here. Hmmm...wonder if we can find enough to fill our time.

    Last day on the bus, headed to Paris!

    June 21, 2018 in France ⋅ ⛅ 19 °C

    Last bus ride of the trip. Our bus driver was quite skilled and made us feel very comfortable. There was plenty of room to spread out. I got some down time here and there, although our tour guides, Colleen and Andy liked to entertain with history or language lessons, mood music fitting the next place we were headed, and often chocolate or other treats that they shared!
    The other pictured treats were goodies we bought at a local store to have a picnic dinner in the room. We did that a few times at the end of a long day. Sometimes we were just too tired to decide on a restaurant and then deal with the language barrier. Plus it was an opportunity to see what the local grocery stores were like. They were a place to see a bit of local culture and get and inexpensive easy meal or treat.
