Melb/Hong Kong 9 1/2 hrs. 2 hr layover. Hong Kong/Paris 12 1/2 hrs. Thank you Premium Economy for the leg room but still = sore butt. Pls bring back Concorde.
Pick up Renault Kangoo in Paris. Roomy 6 speed diesel manual. At 130kph (autobarn limit) it drives like a mobile marshmallow but is a punchy little machine. Fuel economy 6.3l/100k - supposed to do 4.3l/100k = leadfoot. Fuel $2.50/l.
Off to Giverny. 1.5hr drive. Quiet country B&B.
