After a fabulous few days in London, I was in travel mode and ready to join the tour for a nice and early departure from London, taking a bus to the ferry at Dover across to Calais, where our bus driver and coach met us for the drive through to Paris. There are 37 people in the tour group, with 80% coming from Australia!! A good mix of people ( a lot of couples!!) - some are more after seeing the sights and those that are determined to get tanked in every country for the cheapest price. Our tour leader is a lovely Kiwi girl called Lauren and the bus driver is Brian (originally also from NZ, but has been doing this for the past 16 years - read: extremely good at getting very drunk on his non driving days).

After checking into our hotel in Paris (pretty basic, but OK I thought, but others kept referring to how we were staying in the ghetto!!), we were dropped off in the Monmarte area where we had a great 3 course meal for only 11 euros (love the 3 course thing that europeans seem to be into!!), then went on a night driving tour of Paris to see the main sights and the rose and champagne coloured car lights down the Champs Elysees (damn Austrian keyboard throwing off my typing - why do you need to swap letters around on the keyboard!!??)

We had a pretty early night, with a massive day of sight seeing planned for the next day....
