Sepia - very romantic....
Paris. wow... it was so nice taking the euro star.. its bad to say but we are soo sick of flying. It only took 15mins to get to waterloo from work and we were in Paris by 8pm. After a bit of a mess around with hostelworld we ending up with a hotel out in the 12th arrondissement.

On Friday we attempted to eat out at a french restaurant we had been reccomended and also the arc de triomphe both of which turned us away we only missed out by minutes. Ended up walking the streets snapping up some night shots in between the rain showers... amazin to think we had been sitting in the office just a few hours prior.

Started out way too early on sat morning especially considering all the walking we had in store.. ticked off the mian spots louvre (too scared to go in.
Escargot - They came out shell and all, had to suck them out!
. wouldn't even know where to start) Notre Dame (3rd time lucky as it was otherwise engaged with the ordainment of a priest in the morning and some of the avo) Eiffel (queues were crazy!). Did a great little walking tour of Marais.. which told us about lots of little secrets of the area... including some of the crazy things the royalty and their entourage got up to in the 16th and 17th centurys.

Food was super.. we ate way too many baguettes and SC even tried snails (I'm still getting over it). The wine was great.. and good icecream, hot choc etc etc

sunday we had time for a whirlwind tour of sacre ceur (we were there during mass and the singing sounded awesome.. amazing acoustics) before heading bakck to the eurostar and home to london by the early afternoon.

Definitely good votes for Paris but we needed at least another two days.. will have to go again?!?
