Saturday: We set off at around 10 and were happy with the navman this time, as it led us on the loveliest scenic drive to the highway. Through cute little Champagne villages and rolling fields of grape vines and other crops. It was a great way to leave the countryside of France :)
Although It was a bit disheartening when we hit heavy traffic with the occasional traffic jam 32km out of Paris! Hmmm what were we gonna be in for! But at least it moved quite ...

A big sleep in the next day was followed by a walk along the Champs - élysées to the Arc de Triomphe having a look in a few of the shops. From there we jumped back on the metro and visited Sacre Coeur (church) which offered a brilliant view over the city of Paris.
