In broad daylight...

She does not take a bad picture!

Meandering through Montemartre

Dianne- I found the park with perfect views

Little glimpses along the way
There she is - tour de Eiffel!
Vineyards where they are unexpected
An amazing out door congregation

Lovely to visit You on a Sunday x

A Catch up travel post


We found Amelie's little cafe in Pigalle.
It was just as it looked in the Movie, 
the music was playing in our heads...

Our first Creme` Brulee...mmm

Cafe des 2 Moulins

Le Moulin de la Galette - Our first meal in Paris
The photos are a little backwards ...we didn't have dessert first although there is an idea!

Perfection! My daughter ordered
Filet de Boeuf, Sauce Bearnaise, frites au couteau et musclin
I had rack of lamb and not to forget a lovely glass of champagne!

YUM!

Just a start to our lovely adventures in Paris.

One more day...

Tomorrow we are off to Paris


We go by train - 4 hours
Time to leave Amsterdam
We have our last night with family tonight in Amsterdam - it has been a lovely visit but it is time to leave. 
Paris is our next destination and it is hard to believe. 
Our Paris here we come!

Joyeux anniversaire

It is my birthday today and today I celebrate in Holland with my brother, sister in law and niece - also my daughter. I am away from home but still with family. 
I wonder what this year will bring ....

London's calling!


Let me take you by the hand

and lead you through the streets of London

I'll show you something
That will make you change you mind. 

I don't think my mind needs changing
I am convinced,
There is no place like London

6 sleeps



I am noticing that I am creeping off to bed a little earlier lately perhaps it is because there are only a few sleeps left before our trip. I must say I do have a few butterflies in my tummy.
My main concern is what to pack and what not to pack, will I have enough, will I be warm enough?
hmm...questions questions and fickle ones at that.
It's a long weekend here in Oz , which means only one thing - less time to think
