Nev and Patsyanns’ Round The World Trip 2006/7
June 3rd ParisWaited around the airport for our plane (arrived 7.40 am) landed in Paris at 9.15am. got a taxi to the hostel/hotel French drive like nutters!Place is a bit grim had to get them to hoover the room and change the sheets. Had a few hours sleep got up at lunch time. We are in the hart of Paris so all the attractions are all in walking distance. The louvre is huge and beautiful as is Paris. So much to see. We walked down the Champs Elysees, which took us two hours. Walked till 10.30pm then got a big mac for dinner. (all we could afford) Paris is nit cheap! 2 beers cost 14 euros.?
June 4th The 1st Sunday of the month is free entry to the louvre. I think all the French have turned up the queue is a mile long! We are sitting in the Gardens at the Louvre and listening to a band and reading in the sunshine.Waited for the queue to go down and got to see the Mona Lisa (she's all that) had dinner in the gardens of the louvre then a beer and walked back to the hostel.
June 5th Went to see Notra Dame it took 200yrs to build this thing (French workers really kicked the arse out of that one) Had a picnic in the gardens of the louvre again, then went to a bar and had 2 drinks 23euros (robin french cheese eating, garlic smelling tossers. Sorry, Le tossers) Moung too as Dell boy would say. Met some old french blokes they didn't speak english and patsyanns' French is school girl but we had a laugh.
June 6th Went to the Eiffel Tower--- up to the top! So pleased with myself because I was bricking it. We then sat in the gardens and got some sun. off to find a supermarket and buy some lunch/dinner and wine. Had a picnic played some cards then had a wee sleep, got a tram near the hostel had a beer in an irish bar then walked back to the hostel. Early night tonight off to Nice tomorrow.
