Goodbyes are never easy, even if they aren't permanent. After nearly a month, our contingent was splitting into two and there were a few wet eyes as we said our goodbyes early in the morning. Our baggage handlers, aka my bro and father inlaw, accompanied us to Waverley train station to help us with our bags, or perhaps to make sure we actually went …
Arrived off ferry that we almost missed b/c of accident on m20. also, jason forgot his sweatshirt at Abra's so had to go back there to get it. Then got to ferry where I got told, I think its P & O, but not really sure which ferry company I booked with......ok, this will be a new adventure. Got to Lille, had a great dinner, and now about to head to normandy.....
OK guys, so this is it. To make a long story short, (and it really is a long story - I'll come back on this) this is my small and humble blog on how I came to go to Dubai and how I'll be living and working there.
After many weeks of preparations, my suitcases are finally packed and I think I have everything. In my good old style, we'll see in a few days time which ...
I managed to fit in a quick day trip to Lens to see the Louvre outpost there and also connect with a doctoral student I met last summer. We met there, went to the Louvre, had lunch, and then walked to the top of one of "les terrils" and drank some champagne. It was a lovely day all around. I am fond of coal mining towns because of my own geneology. The town has preserved these large coal mountains as a reminder of the hard work and sacrifice of the coal miners.
... we had wasted a couple of hours at this point. We also had not had any
food, since breakfast so were getting a bit hungry. We went straight out
and caught the bus to the cemetery going past the battle fields and
trenches on the way with the intention of catching the bus back and
checking them out. Eventually getting off at the cemetery is was a short
walk. This was quite unreal feeling walking along and then getting
to the cemetery, just the ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Suite Novotel Lille Europe
Hôtel très agréable
Exactement comme nous l'imaginions. L'acceuil est très agréable et les chambres sont confortables. Plusieurs services gratuits (vod, musique,..etc ) sont proposés dans les chambres et c'est un petit plus pas négligéable. Nous avons beaucoup aimé. Idéal pour passer un week-end à Lille, si on aime la modernité : l'hôtel est situé dans le nouveau quartier face à la gare lille europe, et à dix-quinze minutes à pieds du vieux Lille.
Stayed here for four nights with my wife and 12 year old son at a very good rate and was more than happy with our stay.
We used the weekend deal that the hotel offers via the website and it was excellent value for money - not sure if it would be worth the full rate.. Room was a nice size, clean and quiet. The location is great for the eurostar and a short walk into town. Staff were really helpful and friendly.
My family stayed here from Aug. 5 thru Aug. 9. We had two rooms.
A very pleasant place
I've spend some nights in this place and I must confess that it is a place where you appreciate to be even if it is not your home sweet home : the staff is very kind, rooms are well designed and the manager is working hard to make your stay as pleasant as possible.
A place to visit asap.
Having tried 3 other hotels in Lille previously, the Suitehotel is by far the best.
This was our 12th weekend to Lille in 15 years, and were delighted with our stay at the SuiteHotel.
Excellent location and very clean
This hotel is only 8 weeks new,the rooms are ultra modern and the beds so so comfortable. Breakfast if you buy it , is somewhat different, small plastic pots containing various items all cold, unlimited fresh coffee ,fruit juices and various breads. The hotel is directly opposite the euro star station in Lille, and only a 8 min walk into the centre of Old Lille. This is an above average hotel with very friendly and helpful staff.
Hope your stay was as good as ours.
This hotel only opened last week so everything is fresh and new. The décor is funky and colourful with a myriad of shapes and patterns wherever you look. It appears very "trendy" at the moment, but you can't help thinking it will tire quickly. The rooms are modern and asymmetrical but unfortunately a bit on the cheap side. The toilet and bathroom are encased in a giant plastic shell (the kind you find in a ferry cabin), the duvets are thin and the beds are made of sponge.
