... the bags in the car – they just fitted! We have a black Audi A4 and it’s pretty nice! They drive on the right side of the road over here and it is a manual so you change gears with your right hand instead. We were going to Versailles which is about 20km out of Paris. We thought it the last entrance was at 4 so we weren’t sure if we would get there in time. But Michael navigated his way through Paris traffic quite well and we got there at about 3.30pm. I ...
