Apr 22, 2005 - Day 26 - From London to Paris

Hi Everyone, Just a short message for Day 26. We said bye to Dad and hung around the flat til about noon. Then we headed over to the grocery store. We took our picnic lunch over to St. James Park and layed around there until it was time to head to the train station. We arrived in Paris in the evening. And that's about it! Two more sleeps til we come home...hopefully someone is picking us up at the airport. See you all soon! Love, Meg & Chad PS: And YES the guard was that HUGE!!!! I think that I was even standing on a curb!

Apr 18, 2005 - Paris Day 8

This wont be a long message as am using a French keyboard and my slow typing becomes snail like as the letters are in slightly different places. Paris has been lovely - a mix of weather and grey again today - but nothing too serious. Cath and Robbie left this morning for the UK so I think my trip officially starts today. Must go and sort out some accommodation as my itinerary has changed already due to Versaille being closed on a Monday - so am staying another day and heading to Blois tomorrow night after Versaille. I am feeling really...

Apr 14, 2005 - Paris: Travelling Partners...

Dropped Greg off here before continuing on to my Aunt and Uncles... Was sad to see him go. As it always is with travel companions. It was funnny to think that two months prior I really did not to much about this guy and now I consider him to be a good friend...It amazes me how much you can learn about a person from travelling with them. I think I have written this before, but the thing that I love about travel is that it condenses life. You find out a lot about yourself and about your friends because you have to live every moment of the...

Apr 4, 2005 - Viagem para Paris - Primeiro dia

Acordamos super cedo (umas 5 e pouco da matina) pois tínhamos que pegar o Eurostar as 7:35 h, para isto tinhamos que chegar 1 hora antes para fazer check-in (igual a aeroporto) ..portanto tinhamos que estar saindo do hotel às 5:45 h !!!! Ou seja, saimos mortos de cansados e sem café das manhã. Chegamos na estação de Waterloo, fizemos o check-in e ficamos aguardando a hora do trem. A fominha chegou e resolvemos gastar nossas últimas libras em lanche para comer no trem. Ainda deu tempo para dar uma olhadinha nas lojas até a chamada para...

Mar 26, 2005 - Paris

Well - Geoff got tickets to Paris for Jess' birthday. It was only a day trip, leaving at 7am and getting back to London at 11pm. So we went via train and had to go through the Channel Tunnel. Paris was fun and we so want to go back, and it is so cool to say that we just poped over to Paris for the day! Since we were in Paris for only 8 hours we didn' have much time to do the touristy things, we just looked to see what we wanted to see on our return. So we bluffed our way through the subway system not understanding a thing there, and turned...

Mar 24, 2005 - Paris and Versailles

Paris is an amazing city with the most amazing subway system that I have ever seen. Trust me it is worth mentionting. I was kinda overwhelmed by the city because it was soo big and I only had two days to see it. I was able to: get to the Louvre and see Mona Lisa and a really cool West African art display, ascend the Eiffel Tower, see the rather unexciting Arc de Triumph, spend a lot of time in Notre Dame Cathedral, listen to some street jazz musicians play, and have a really good time eating the really good pastries and other baked goods of...

Mar 17, 2005 - Happy St. Pat's from Paris (Day 2)

We are in Paris, our second to last stop. Once again, the keyboards here suck, so I won't be writing a lot. But we are here and safe and trying to find reasonably priced housing. Not really possible here. Anyway, if I can find an English computer, I will try to write more. Otherwise, I'll do my best to update in London. We love you all lots and can't wait to get home to see you all. Take care. Write if you can. Talk to you soon. Love, Abby and Melissa The actual entry from Paris, Day 2: We walked a lot again today. We slept in again, and...

Mar 16, 2005 - Paris: Gaining a Travel Buddy, Walking, and Da Vinci Codes

Bonjour! So I came to the City of Light for the second time in my life and was not disappointed. I did not really understand why they called it that, because it seems to have just as many lights as any other city in the world, if not fewer. However, as I discoverd the name does not come from street lights (or the heart of Parisians for that matter). Rather it comes from the actual city itself... On a clear spring day when the sun begins to set, the light just begins to play through the streets, aross the parks, off the buildings, and floats...

Mar 12, 2005 - Paris

Taking a high speed train, I got to Paris in about two hours, arriving around noon. My hotel is right in the middle of a marketplace which is ideal. I was able to check in early and head up to my room to drop off my pack. This room is a bit bigger than the last one, but still just a single. The location makes it perfect though. I'm noticing that many things are smaller in Europe; food portions, soft drinks, cars, etc., and I've never seen an elevator as small as the one in this hotel. I could barely fit in it myself, and it was a real...

Mar 4, 2005 - Paris

Well Malin and I travelled to Paris with her Mum and Dad, cost us next to nothing, for information you can get to Paris (or most other places by the way) for about ten Aussie dollars plus taxes (add $50) and that's exactly what we did!! Malins mum and Dad, other than Australia has never been abroad other than the ubiquitous 'package trips' although they are to places like Turkey, Dominican Republic and the Mallorca. So we saddle up and hit the road thanks to RYAN AIR. P.S fly Tues or Wed and you will mostly get the great web fares, we do...

Mar 1, 2005 - Paris

Hey Everybody!!!! Here is the update for my last few days in Paris. I'm still not sure where I'm going from here, but I've paid for my hostel until the morning of the 3rd and I'll head out then. 2/27 -Well, I'm in Paris finally and let me tell you it was an adventure to get here. I tried to get tickets for the chunnel online but found out I had to go straight to the train station to go. Fine, so I went to Paddington Station like it said to on the internet , then I was told that I needed to go Kings Cross Station so I went. Then I'm told...

Mar 1, 2005 - Paris, France

It's time to start heading back. We left Susanne's on the 28th. We got into Paris that evening. Took a little while to get a hotel, but we made it. We found out where we could wash our clothes and then pretty much settled in. We went and had a great dinner! Very very good! Then crahsed. We have been so tired. Staying at everyone's houses has been great but we have had to be on their schedule a bit. So besides being tired from traveling for so long, our schedules are a little off. So we decided to turn off all alarms and sleep as late as we...
