If you ask any of my friends, they will tell you that one thing I have always wanted to do is pack a case and head to the airport and pick a destination. Marseille was just that. I decided since I wasn’t going to Newcastle (don’t worry young ‘un, it’s still banked for next year) […]
I decided that I wanted to go to Paris as I got a really good email offer from Eurostar. They were offering one way seats for £29 each – that’s right, £29 each. Who wouldn’t go for an offer like that! I didn’t worry about where I would stay, I just decided I wanted […]
So, this was our final full day in Normandy and we decided that we would go to the to see the never before seen footage they have there. As part of our tickets we bought while at the Caen Memorial, we got entrance to the movie here. It was almost like you didn’t have to […]

So, we decided that we wanted to go on a cruise over Christmas so we could be away on Christmas Day. That didn’t turn out to be what happened, but we were glad that it didn’t. We had a whole rigmarole in the days leading up to the cruise and while we were on the […]
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 […]
