And a quick update on travel so far.
We have five days in Paris and are enjoying this very beautiful city. Pity about the all the tourists and queues!
Yes, the Back in Britain blogs are not complete. Will try to do a couple to finish off that lot in the next few days. 😄 😜
Our arrival in Paris and travel to our accommodation in Monmartre was a hark back to our travel 'style' from earlier years. We walked from the Metro station to our apartment! Only this time no backpacks, just fully laden suitcases with wheels as we used maps and compass to locate the Villa Monmartre and walk up to it. Navigation excellent, distance quite a challenge, especially in the heat of a hot Paris afternoon.
The location of our apartment, is as the name suggests, right in the ducks guts of Monmartre. Here are a couple of photos around the area where we are staying, one from the window of the apartment looking out at the Basilica Sacre Coeur!
Here are a few more photos some taken from the upper deck of Paris' Big Red Bus, so excuse the poor framing etc.
And contrasting styles for getting about . . . .
Next a cruise on the Seine, gee it was hot and as we returned, the 'Tour Eiffel' in a much better light.
Auvoir pour le moment
