This was my first experience in staying in a hostel type place. I couldn't complain with anything at the hostel. Comfortable beds, good shower! And it was relatively close to the metro.

Later I learned it was a tourist company that sells tickets to the Palace and not actually the city. We waited in line at the tourist company to get them, tickets ...
... according to the ticket salesman change to the C line. Mike instead walked us around looking for the Metro line…although to his defence the map he was given wasn’t very clear...although what was clear was the fact that we were now in Paris.
The positive about not following the initial directions was that we got to see our first parts of Paris…most impressively the Notre Dame Cathedral. We crossed over the Seine and found our way to ...
... we started in the Louvre, in the gift shop. The kids each chose two postcards of paintings they liked which was an interesting task in itself as they were presented with many images of the human body in all its glory! The boys particularly found this amusing and Milly was just horrified.
Next task, find them. We did seek the help of lovely lady who told us which rooms to head towards otherwise we would have been there for ages. It’s an amazing place to wander through. ...
