Today we leave Paris for the last time.. It has been a lovely unexpected visit. When I left Australia on 7th August a trip to France was not on the agenda. I was in the US when I received an email from Charlie to say it was on the agenda. I never imagined just how beautiful a city it is.

We stopped off for some delicious lunch at a little cafe and then headed back to the hotel. We were all bushed. I actually fell asleep at the desk here whilst waiting for (bloody ...
