8 May 2007


Over the Bank holiday weekend (public holiday) we flew to Paris for two nights. We left sat morning and got into Paris around lunch time. This is our first trip overseas since we started work here.
We stayed in the 7th arrondissement, about 5 minutes walk from the Eiffel Tower.

We went for a bit of a walk and of course the first thing we found was a fromagerie (Cheese shop). The shop was mind blowing and corinne and i cried tears of happiness over the stinky selection (see next post). Over the weekend we visited a lot of the goodies like Eiffel tower, Champs elysees (main road in paris), Arc de Triomphe, Monmarte and the Sacre-coeur and the Louvre. We also walked through many nice parks and gardens like the Jardins des tuileries and ate lots of great tucker.

Arc de Triophe surrounded by one of the craziest roundabouts in the world.

This is me forcefully made to drape myself over a large breasted nude statue in the Jardins des Tuileries with the Louvre in the background. Corinne wanted me to do something else to the statue but of course, being a gentleman, I refused.
