It’s been close on 20 years since my last in Paris or France for that matter. So I have seen many of the Paris tourist sights already. But with extended family and kids we had to visit them again. I had just forgotten the about about the tourists & crowds.
My arm is quite sore. I have been pinching it many times and saying to myself “OMG I am in Paris”. Good news is my cold has gone. Think I’ve given it now to Ann, sorry about that.
Let the holiday begin.
