Day 2 - Paris
Today we were up and ready to see all that Paris had to offer. We were so excited that we left two of our Contiki family back at the hotel .... ops!
Having completed a city tour last night we were given the option to drop off at 3 different locations and the day to explore. Some of this I did on my own, other …
... So we are writing the Blog now, to be posted tonight, hopefully if the WiFi works well.
We arrived punctually at CDG Airport but could not remember where to catch the little monorail which takes you to the different terminals, so asked the man at the Information counter and then it all came back. Last year we had a major delay in getting to our hotel as we took a bus to a different Ibis Hotel further away and that delayed us over one hour! Not this time! We were ...
... They have quite a few pieces in several rooms, probably two dozen or so Monet's. Degas' ballerinas were there, in all their glory. I think we saw over a dozen paintings by Degas. They had several Van Gogh's, too. I loved the Renoir's, too. Here is a listing of all the pictures they have and it is impressive, indeed. http://www.musee-orsay.fr/en/collection ...
... closing show I feel something tug on my pants. I turn around and there is Elvis on one knee in front of the huge crowd of people that were there to watch the show. He asks me to be his wife.

... squished there faces all up like I was crazy. Yes, tarte for one. Individuals need dessert too lady!
Got home and turned up the french tunes on the radio and cooked my din din. I'm tired. The train ride was long coupled with 2 glasses of wine and thats the perfect recipe for a good sleep for me.
I think I'm going to write a little each day and publish it with photo's that way I don't have a massive entry on Wednesday before I leave.
Bonne nuit mes amours!
TravelPod Member ReviewsAlliance Hotel Paris
This hotel is part of the Holiday Inn chain. It was very nice, had a bath tub, and tea and coffee facilites. Many of the hotels we stayed in didn't have tea / coffee inroom facilities, so this was great! My room was clean and comfy bed. Although others on our tour had issues. I had to walk home from the Moulin Rouge to the hotel, taking around 40 mins (I think). So good location as well.
