London to Paris

Are we there yet?

View European Eruption on GIJude's travel map.

Wednesday 5-10-11
Yesterday we climbed the Monument in London (311 spiral steps) and visited the Tower bridge. Had a play with the models of the bridge and took many photos of the area. There were beautiful heavy clouds which made for an awesome backdrop. Temperature dropped a bit which made for a lovely stroll by the Thames river. Today we boarded the Eurostar for France. Despite travelling backwards it is a very smooth pleasant, reviving journey. Some of the countryside reminds us of taking the train to Geelong, except the houses are cuter and the cars are on the opposite side of the road. Grey clouds here today as well. We'll be arriving soon so I guess we'll find out how over or under dressed we are. It will be sink or swim today as we are diving head first into Paris with a dinner and cruise on the Seine and then Moulin Rouge at 11.00pm for champagne and a show!! Oui oui!!
Update - pinch me am I really in Paris?
Moulin Rouge - awesome, Eiffel Tower - awesome, Catacombs - Awesome, Yes we Can Can - Awesome, Notre Dame - yes you guessed it and libre (free).
Good grief - who would want to drive here - not I!!
Off to Switzerland tomorrow!!
Weather has cooled off and a bit wet.
