Arrive in Paris by Eurostar! :) such a lovely way to travel, met up with Emma and Nat at St. Pancras (they travelled down from Manchester, I travelled up from Bath) and we checked in with our bags. The whole process was infinitely easier and quicker than at an airport. We spent the 2 hour journey time assembling our lists of what to do in Paris, to include: Go up the Eiffal Tower, on a boat cruise on the Seine, go to 'le Petite Zinc' restaurant, see the Notre Dame cathedral, Louvre and generally all the sights, and of course eat lots of delicious pastries/cakes/sweets.
We arrive at our hotel in and ditch our bags and seek out food, on exiting our little hotel I am delighted to see that we are steps away from the Folie Bergiere music hall, what an icon! Its looking quite run down these days but still nice to have this lovely dancing lady to greet us in Paris:
Staying in St Germain for the evening, we went to 'Le Petite Zinc' restaurant which was recommended to us.What a gem! like being on a divine art nouveau ship. The food was excellent and we were treated to a parisian jazz trio seranading the restuarant, dreamy!
To round off our Thursday and last full day in Paris, we cruised along the Seine in a boat tour taking in some lovely views of the Notre Dame, and went to the very top of the Eiffel tower (terrifying and windy!)
