TripAdvisor Reviews Mercure Magenta Paris
Travel Blogs from Paris
It was a very nice town for a stroll in the parks by the river, and we had brunch there - a very nice Brittany creperie.
After lunch we headed back to our chateau hotel for a friend's wedding ceremony and celebrations!
... of flowers. There was a Fair set up next to the garden which we stumbled upon. We went to have a look through it. The first thing we all laid eyes on was a stall with lots of different and colourful lollies. We grabbed a bag between each pair and started filling them up! The grams added up quickly though and it turned out to be more expensive than we thought! But we're on holidays :D and they were yummy!
We got some lunch from the fair and sat down ...
Well...... today was our 2nd day in Paris. Everywhere we went ( almost ), I could see the tip of the Eiffel Tower. We went around on a tour bus for a while..... but it was at the end of the day. The beginning of our day was pretty interesting. First we were trying to find where we get our Paris Passes, so be took the Metro. That must have taken hours, because we were so confused at times. It wasn't as organized and as easy as Italy. We finally made it onto a train..... which we hoped ...
... wine! (And shampoo etc). We dropped our groceries home and went out again to get some dinner. Keeping in mind we've just flown halfway around the world to France, what does Alex want for dinner?? Pizza. Tasted good though. Well, its off to sleep now for me, Adam and Alex are already out like lights. May the rest of the holiday be smooth sailing!! Meredith, Adam & Alex xxx PS. I published this on Sunday morning Paris time because I was too tired to proofread it last ...
... like meatloaf.
The kitchen was in the basement, so I snuck downstairs & snapped a couple of photos of the chefs & the kitchen. The kitchen was so teeny tiny!
Was a great extra day in Paris, but honestly, I was ready to get home. I missed Bear, Copper & Kitty & knew it was time to get back to reality, whatever that is??
Au Revoir, Paris!
