On Sunday 05/08 we headed off to Paris. We left London Waterloo Eurostar station at 08:01. It took about 3 hours to get into Paris.

We took a taxi to the hotel. I was impressed at the amount of English people spoke in Paris.

At the hotel, Jamie had a nap and I headed off on the Paris Metro to downtown Paris. It was an awfully hot day. I think I got sun stroke. I did enjoy it though.

I took a picture of the Louvre pyramid while I was there.

I came back to the hotel and had a nap. In the evening Jamie and I headed out to a place called Pont Neuf (Bridge Nine) and we took a cruise on the river Seine. It was nice, it was about 90 minutes. It took us down to the Eiffel Tower and back to the Notre Dame before taking us back to the pier.

On the Monday (06/08) it was raining heavy for most of the day. We did eventually manage to go out and we took a tour on one of the open top buses. We got some good pictures.

We went by the Louvre, Notre Dame Cathedral, French Government, Champs Elysees, Arc De Triomphe, Eiffel Tower and then back to the Louvre.

We ate at a cafe in the evening. It was ok, not too bad food. We headed back to the hotel ready for the last day.

On the Tuesday (07/08) we took one last open bus tour. This took us by the Moulin Rouge and the Gare du Nord (North Station).

From there, we went and done some souvenir shopping and headed to the station ready for the train home. We finally got home at 23:45 that evening and had a well earned sleep.
