We also went to the city of Meaux for a day but it turned out of a disappointment. I was told that this was a city were the Frence cheese " Brie" was coming from and ofcourse in the surroundings, but we didn´t saw any cheese shop at all. And this city is not as beautiful as I thought it would be. There were a couple of nice shoppingstreets, a river with bridges and ofcourse the Cathedral. I was looking forward to visit the cathedral but they were busy with restoring the inside of the church. Everything was full of dust and many beautiful paintings, furniture etc were covert or removed. We didn´t had the chance to light up a candle like we always do etc. No, this wasn´t a nice visit at all, so we decided to go further and explore the beautiful landscape which is lovely by the way.
I looked in the TomTom for a shoppingmall and we ended at the large Outlet Centre at Val L´Europe near Disneyland Paris. We were surprised, it was hugh!! There was a nice attraction SEALIFE!! Here you can discover the fascinating and beautiful marine world...... the world of seahorses, stingrays and sharks. And also the beautiful fish from one of the world's largest rivers in Amazonia, where you will meet the dangerous piranhas.
We didn´t go in this one because in our birthtown Scheveningen there is also a SEALIFE were we been to before. But there was so much to see in this great shopping mall. You can spend all day here. There is an outlet village and a indoor department with lots of stores and a department with all kinds of restaurants.
We had a nice afternoon and ofcourse bought some nice things!
