Lobster in Florence

Posted on: Monday, July 6th, 2015 in: Uncategorized

Sunday 5th July was time to leave Venice and head to Florence. Our train was leaving at 11:25am and we had to check-out by 10am. DW and I headed out around 7am to find breakfast, but the only places open were either for people staying at the associated hotel (at least until 8am) or served […]

Learning more about the history of Venice

Posted on: Monday, July 6th, 2015 in: Uncategorized

On Saturday 4th July we had a morning walking tour of Venice. We had an early breakfast in order to get to the tourist office by 8:50am. The guides arrived and confirmed everyone’s vouchers, then we headed to another part of the Square where more guides joined us and there were more vouchers to validate. […]

Paris in review

Posted on: Friday, July 3rd, 2015 in: Uncategorized

We knew that there was a heatwave about to hit France before we left London, so I won’t comment too much on the temperatures. Suffice to say that even 40°C without high humidity is extremely nice – we had no problems with it at all. One of the first things I noticed (apart from they […]

Lost in Venice

Posted on: Friday, July 3rd, 2015 in: Uncategorized

Since we visited the Rialto markets yesterday afternoon, we decided to relax this morning and head out a little later – we were doing the three island tour at 11am. We walked down to the waterfront and had breakfast at a place not far from San Marco Piazza (Saint Marc’s Square). DW and DD both […]

Tongue tied

We woke early today, as we have done most days, but allowed ourselves time to relax – our airport transfer was due to pick us up at 7am. We decided to have breakfast at the airport, so we headed to reception around 6:30am – the shuttle was already waiting. The checkout process was quick and […]

Heatwave high on our last day in Paris.

Posted on: Wednesday, July 1st, 2015 in: Uncategorized

We only had a few things planned for today, which is just as well because the temperature was expected to get to 40°C as the heatwave hit. We were expecting a fax from the transfer company for our pickup tomorrow, so I asked at reception – several people wanted to check out at the same […]

We dare not breathe

Today we planned to walk up the Champs Elysees to the Arc de Triomphe, take our lunch cruise on the Seine, and then go up the Eiffel Tower. Since La Place de la Concorde (the foot of the Champs Elysees) wasn’t far from our hotel, we decided to walk there and get breakfast on the […]

Springtime in Paris

Posted on: Tuesday, June 30th, 2015 in: Uncategorized

We started the day with breakfast at the hotel – available from 7am, it was perfect for an early start. After breakfast we ordered a taxi to take us to the Louvre – our research told us to get there early and head straight for the Mona Lisa. Arriving just after 8am, there were already […]

London – my thoughts and impressions

Posted on: Sunday, June 28th, 2015 in: Uncategorized

London is a huge city that seems to be built on top of itself. For the most part it is tall narrow buildings, cramming as much as possible into very little space. The streets are narrow and it surprises me that there isn’t more gridlock – but perhaps that’s a credit to the public transport […]

Au Revoir London, Hello Paris!

Posted on: Sunday, June 28th, 2015 in: Uncategorized

Although I had a good sleep, DW had been up early trying to get the washing dry – after four hours in the washer-dryer it was still damp. We had a bit of time left (our train to Paris wasn’t leaving until 11am), so we packed the washing and headed down to the local laundrette […]
