    Bonjour Paris!

    October 8, 2017 in France ⋅ ⛅ 16 °C

    Flew to Paris (as the Chunnel is closed for maintenance on one day per year and that day was today). Lounge at Heathrow was nice for lunch and drinks (although had a small wait as was packed). Also had another go at playing one of the tiny board games we got in Frankfurt (Orc). Flight was 50min long so nice and quick.

    Customs etc in France was quick. Train in to Paris took a bit longer (ages to leave station and confusion around which train we were meant to be on). Eventually arrived and greeted by our host, who was lovely and gave us some recommendations of restaurants etc.

    Then had pizza for tea at one of the recommendations, La Massara. Really good pizza and wine and dessert in a lovely romantic setting. Then back home to do some planning for our short stay here, and an early ish night.

    Two full days in Paris so will need to get cracking tomorrow!

    Country to large city! FRANCE

    May 20, 2015 in France ⋅ 🌙 6 °C

    France... what can I really say? The steriotype of stuck up, and not wanting to speak English! This theory was disproven! First was the country south of france, where we lived in an old building of more than 200 years old...and gosh was it scary! Not many residents spoke English, but they all tried their hardest to welcome you in their old quiet town. We spent most of our time looking at the beautiful landscapes, going to old antique markets, and stuffing our faces with traditional French food. For those who dont know.... french food consits of bread...cheese..wine and well 3 course meals breakfast, lunch and dinner!
    Although i am sad to leave this paradise, i am sick of eating and thinking about food! Next stop...Pariiiiissss

    Paris. The city of love...and well i am not surprised..as everyone is sipping on wine by the bottle under the effel tower...and are not afraid to show public affection....YUK!
    Beautiful old city..but also crazy drivers who i am sure try to run you over...and just to let all those who are wanting to go to France... a zebra crossing doesnt mean you have way...it means..be aware of those scooters and bike riders who actually dont care about pedestrians.

    In Paris we enjoyed climbing up the effel tower..where i soon realised i am now scared of heights...as i have a constant fear that the ground below me is going to cave in.... (thanks to my christmas 2 years ago when the deck collapsed)...this not only happened at the Effel tower..but even at the bridge of locks..!
    We visited Notre Dame, what is a beautiful cathedral, and the amazing palace versailles, which took all day to walk around just the garden alone!

    The next two days we are heading to Disney Land, and maybe even Movie World or the Museum Louvre. However, what ever we miss, we will be coming back around to see in August!
