Bonjour Paris!


Well bonjour indeed everyone!! Hope you enjoy my little pics of a recent trip of mine with my mother-in-law to Paris. Only overnight but we sure packed a lot in!!

In my usual state of genius, I thought it would be a wonderful idea to visit on Bastille Day!! I had no idea that the city would be at a virtual standstill for the most part. Ended up having to walk about the last mile or so to our hotel, which was just next to the Arc De Triomphe!!

Then we couldn’t get on our open top bus tour as the roads were all closed. But not being deterred – as you’ll see from the photo -we opted for another means of transport!!! Great fun!!


We had lunch at Montmartre which was beautiful and then dinner on the Champs-Élysées. Next day they allowed everyone to use their tour passes, and so we did get on our open top bus after all.

Later we went on a River Seine lunch cruise which was excellent, and then back to the Gare du Nord to catch the Eurostar back to London. We had such a blast – it was fab!



It really is amazing what you can cram into 40 hours!!!!! (Mind you, it took me about another 40 to recover – lol!!)

Looking forward to the amazing Elemis Today’s Special Value offer this weekend!!!

Take care you lovely lot.

    Hi Anne, hope you enjoyed yourselves in Paris, my hubby and i hope to do the same soon, but stay a little bit longer. lol…. Such a lot to see isn’t there, Did you go up the Eifel Tower ?? . That is a must, the views are fantastic. The open top bus tour sounds great, we will do that next time. We have been before but must go again while the weather is good… Nice handbag by the way.

    Hi Kathy,
    Lovely to hear from you. No I didn’t go up the Eiffel Tower (my mum in law isn’t a fan of heights) Been up a couple of time before but years ago. Have to say this was my best time in Paris and I do think it was largely down to the time of year and glorious weather. Yes that open top bus is fab!!
    Take care
