What a wonderful thing is a night tour of a city! I've not done one before, and must say it was a delight to take in familiar sights in ”a new light,” especially with someone else driving....

In our four days, we’ve gotten to all the typical places, and a few new ones. The weather has been marvelous - warm and sunny, which made our rooftop drinks at Galleries Lafayette especially enjoyable.

And, some will be happy to learn, after consulting Trip Advisor, we found local bistro with a Michelin rating and had a fabulous meal at a reasonable cost! Box ticked!

A last day took Fae off in search of gifts for family and me on a St. Cloud neighborhood stroll through a morning market, to and over the Seine for a final farewell.

The ride across Paris to Gare du Nord was an adventure, as we lost more than an hour of travel time with one coach breakdown/replacement and rush hour traffic. We scrambled off the bus, dragged our luggage through security and border crossings, and onto the Eurostar in literally the nick of time - it pulled out as the last tour members cleared the platform.

I‘m now in London at Fae’s hotel on bustling Russel Square for two nights, then I head off to the west!
