Hands up those who said “Paris”.
Yes, after two long boring flights, we finally arrived at Charles De Gaulle airport at just after 6AM. By 9AM we had a local SIM card for my phone (but the data bit isn’t working, so have to get that sorted) and a 7-day NavigoPass for transport around Paris, and were sitting in a cafe at Place St Michel just across the river from here having a Parisian breakfast. Finally got into our studio apartment at about 1:30PM, crashed for a couple of hours, then had a shower and went SSSLLLOOOWWW walking around the St Germain area where we’re staying. In my “moon boot” – I broke a bone in my left foot three days before we left – it took us about 20 minutes to do the 5-minute walk to this spot. Such is life! We found this apartment so we could walk almost everywhere in central Paris; now we’re looking at hop-on hop-off buses to get us around.
More before we leave here to join our friends Heather and Ian on a barge in the Bourgogne region next Sunday.
