Letter from Paris: Weekend in the City of Light

Paris, je t'aime

Paris, je t’aime

Two days ago, in the midst of renovation and DIY projects, Clive and I agreed it would be possible, and good, to book train tickets for a long weekend in Paris.

Today blessed us with beautiful weather and a smooth journey, thanks to trains, Underground/metro and Eurostar. We arrived to bright sunshine and much warmer temperatures than on our last visit.

In the next few days, we hope to relax, walk a lot, and have a ‘couple’s interlude’ before the upcoming 2-1/2 months of intense family visits to Australia and the US.

I’m always overjoyed to be here, no matter what the season, no matter what the weather, no matter what we do. This evening we walked around during l’heure bleue, the blue hour, and watched the Eiffel Tower light up against the deepening sky.

Paris, je t’aime.

Cheers and thanks for reading. Next week’s letter will be from back in Felixstowe.
