Where I stayed

Flag of France  , Île-de-France,
Thursday, May 24, 2012

The night train from Venice to Paris took 13 hrs and was pretty enjoyable, slept reasonably well(@ 4-5 hrs, it was small and cosy but very comfy.
Arrived in Paris 0930, taxi cost 32 Euro to accom but room was not avail til 1300 so we hit the open roof tour bus to see the city and wow at every turn there is some amazing structures to see.

Our Hotel is a 2 minute walk to the Louvre, we actually have a mini apartment which has a kitchen etc so very roomy its in a fantastic area full of restaurants, cafes etc.

I have booked a tour to Champagne tomorrow, its a 12 hr trip visiting 3 wineries, several tastings etc and a French lunch , Bruce is a little weary so has decided to stay in Paris, so I am off on my own for the day !! Ist day apart since we left Melb !!

We have also booked a Segway tour for Friday( a 2 wheel stand up scooter thing- thanks for the suggestion Leanne) which will be fun, I only hope I can stay upright ok ! I'm sure Bruce will post incriminating photos !!

Early night tonight been a big 24 hrs, so looking forward to my wine tour tomorrow.

Au revoir

Bruce's snippet: I tried downloading some famous movies  from Paris (the lazy way for me to get to know Paris), and i came across Paris Qui Dort, a 1927 silent movie, also known as (wait for it ........ Jo, Gray and Stephanie will enjoy this, " The Crazy Ray". You can download it at: htp://
My challenge: to eat frog's legs., PS our first meal tonight: Japanese, V Yummy
