Very chic. Good start.
Today is the day! Rick dropped us off at the airport and our journey begins! First flight is on time – yeah! We had time in Pearson for cider and something to eat.
Next plane. Off to Montreal – where there was rainstorm that delayed our arrival. Thankfully, it was only 15 minutes which left us just enough time to get to our gate.
Third plane. I love Air Canada (not). Our seats were not all together (as we so carefully chose seats that were supposed to be). With some open seats were able to move, but everyone seemed to need to shift. By 9:00 pm we were in the air. By 9:30 pm we were served drinks. Then there was movie time and dinner.
I was ready to be in France. I checked my watch. What? 11:00 pm? Still five more hours? Ugh.
We all tried to have a nap. Air Canada has issues with the movies – it never really worked for the rest of the flight.
Then, we landed! Got luggage, met our driver, hotel…can’t think…to tired. Hotel room not ready until 2 pm….went for walk.
Our first stop was Swatch. Glenn’s
Old Lyon had some really interesting shops!
watch broke on the plane. Happy Birthday!
We then scouted out the neighbourhood, found baguettes, and found the statue of St. Expury.
2 pm at hotel. Only one room ready. All three of us crash on two twin beds.
Later, when I regained consciousness, we walked to Le Nord, a Paul Bocuse restaurant. Amazing! The bread kept coming.
