Sydney, Singapore, London, Paris, Tours


Week 1
The flight over was interminably long as always - 26 hours flying time + about 12 hours in airport lounges.  This is the absolute worst part of overseas holidays for us.  We arrived in Paris on May Day, a public holiday - OMG, the crowds of people everywhere.  Nevertheless, this being our first visit to Paris we set about familiarising ourselves with the area where we were staying and then ventured further afield using the Metro.  Our hotel was situated close ot Notre Dame so we were continually finding ourselves strolling around this beautiful building.  We will be returning to Paris for 5 days at the end of holiday, but already I know we will barely scratch the surface of this wonderful city.

 

 

We travelled down to Tours in the Loire Valley by train and have had three days here.  Tours is lovely (the old part at least) and the people are totally charming.  The chateaux, well they are just amazing.  For the garden lovers here's a photo of some of the gardens at Villandry. 



And that's just the vegie patch.


Our next stop will be the little village of St Cirq Lapopie, near Toulouse, where we will be joining a small group for a week's walking in the Lot Valley.

All I can say about that garden is It must need a lot of gardeners to keep it looking nice

Enjoy your walk.

I hope we get lots of photos when you get home and sort them.
