Finally on our way on the big trip to Australia! So funny, we waited for the train in Darlington, ready with back packs on feeling very excited. The train arrived, we got on......then had to get off 10 minutes later in Northallerton to wait for the Grand Central train to London we were booked on. Bit overpacked for a 10 min trip to sunny Northallerton! We were arriving in London late on so decided when we arrived at the Aldgate travelodge to go straight to bed as we had to be up at 4.30am for the early Eurostar to Paris! Ian then realised that Katherine Dock was round the corner and we may as well go for a nosey as we'd just seen it on 'The Apprentice' so off we went...........and ended up in the pub, drinking wine until midnight so got 4 hours sleep! This trip is going to be one big alcoholic party, I can see it happening. Had a great day today in Paris, off to Musee d'Orsay tomorrow and then to a Jazz Club for Sunday brunch! Then Kuala Lumpur here we come!!!
