So, today I fulfilled an ambition of sorts: point to point drive from Paris to Congresbury. Needless to say it wasn’t entirely non-stop, as we had the Eurotunnel to break it up, and Sarah insisted we stop & eat in Kent. Otherwise, we did it in a shade over 8½ hours, including a completely unnecessary diversion through Place de la Concorde, Avenue des Champs Élyssées, and the Arc de Triomphe. As you do. I believe that @cobweb66 is willing to bare witness to my negotiation of the Arc de Triomphe, but she might also have closed her eyes... Top Gear will be in touch any day soon, right...?

Yesterday I kept Sarah entertained in a long queue, looked at some old dresses, bought a book, and scored lots of brownie points. It wasn’t against my ‘what’s fun to do in Paris’ nature entirely...

This is the restaurant we walked over the road to (from #lesdeuxmagots ). They’re much friendlier, and made up a table specially for us, and took orders/served drinks inside five minutes! #cafélouiseparis

This is the tablecloth of the restaurant we went to, after enjoying the quiet ambience of the famous ‘Les Deux Magots’ for 15 minutes. We might have had cocktails, wine, ‘Plats’ & ‘Deserts’ but for the absence of any service. The Maitre’d when questioned was very obviously indifferent to the irritation of our travelling from the 9th on a crowded Metro (let alone from Bristol) to visit her venue. French service at its most normal I presume. Everywhere else has been great... #lesdeuxmagots #lookbutdontstay
