Landed safely in Paris…

Today at about 1720 our time Pauline, Mum and Dad (Helen & Rod) landed safely in Paris.

If they follow my itinerary for them they will check in to the hotel on Blvd de Clichy very near the Moulin Rouge.  They will be walking down the street to go up the hill towards Rue des Abbesses to have morning tea at Coquelicot Cafe (a cafe I fell in love with). Then a walk further up the hill through Montmartre to Sacre Coeur.  There will be time for them to wonder in awe at the church and the views of the gorgeous city.

They will need a little rest after this, so it is off down the funicular and back to the hotel for a little time out.

The Eiffel Tower is just a 2 train ride from the hotel and the afternoon is a great time to go to the top.  Pauline has been up the Eiffel Tower and may just walk around the square and find a nice place to enjoy a cuppa while Helen and Rod go up.

After the Eiffel Tower it is time to head back to the hotel, get changed and find somewhere nearby for dinner.  And a stroll down Boulevard de Clichy to see the windmill on the Moulin Rouge lit up.
