We are on our way to Paris today & we have front row seats, we have crossed the region known for their mustard Dijon followed by the Burgundy region known for their beautiful red wines.
We are travelling most of the day. France has forests of oak trees which is used for their wine barrels and is also exported even to Australia.
Like most of Europe France has been conquered by many different people, France was not united as it is today, it was made up of regions.
The Romans who brought their culture, also the British, who had almost taken over Paris, but Joan of Arc was also the saviour of France (she is not a myth).
She helped to liberate Paris from British Invasion but was caught by the people of the Burgundy region and sold to the British who burned her as a witch.
The Happsberger dynasty was also a part of the French history as Louie X1V married the daughter of Maria Teresa of Empress of Austria.
But the favourite of the French was Napoleon Bonaparte who saved France twice but eventually failed.
We have finally arrived in Paris and had our farewell dinner at the restaurant called La Provençal, a very nice meal.
We then took a boat and travelled the river Seine by night.
Paris by night on the Seine this is where we saw the Eiffel Tower light up it was truly magnificent, then we travelled by coach up to the Avenue of Champs-Élysées up to the Arc of Triomphe where the unknown soldier is buried.
