    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.

    Well done.....a good move....do not expect you to finish the travels on those wheels though. What is with the weather? A little sheepish saying the weather warm enough so you wouldn't need rain Gear??? I love the way you travel....hoping one of those glasses was for me?

    Ahh. Paris "la vile d'amour". Very nice sights. On the wind down in Edmonton. Rains have moved in. Dinner on Friday with our dentist from Baden and running partner. Had a workout with the kids from u of a this morning. Looks like we may be driving through to yyj. Wet next week and believe it or not sharon is turning up her nose to camping on the way home! Laura is enjoying amsterdam. Keep up the blogging! Grant

    Our trusty steeds should be well rested and ready to go Friday morning. Your trip in May was an inspiration for us Roberta - we raise a glass often ☺️.

    Not a bad stop-over if you have to make one! Hope the weather improves for you!!
