The first day of our Contiki Tour, we went to Paris! It was a long day of driving and ferrying but we were greeted with Escargo!
After dinner we had a ‘City of Lights’ bus tour.
Arch de Triumph
The second day we spent the morning at the Palace of Versailles and then we were left to explore on our own.
James and I went up the Arch de Triumph and then walked down Champs Elysees.
(Champs Elysees from Arch de Triumph)
The traffic in Paris was absolute chaos! There are no rules. This was a 13 lanes round-about around the Arch de Triumph. Scary!
Ladurelle invented the Macaroon! A few seconds after this photo I was stung by a bee.
We thought this was the ‘love lock’ bridge, but people had just started putting locks on a different bridge.
A guy with a cart behind his bike took us to Notre Dame
That night we went to the Eifel Tower. We made it up to the top just in time (long lines!) for a quick champagne and then ran down the stairs to catch our bus.
My finger was so sore from the bee sting!
Last day in Paris:
My favourite - Winged Goddess
On the final night we had a Parisian dinner with our group and then went to a Cabaret show.
