Paris

Paris was absolutely amazing, we had perfect weather and managed to squeeze a lot in to our 4 day visit. We traveled up the Seine River by boat, went to the top of the Eiffel Tower, spent a day in Disneyland and saw a show in the Moulin Rouge. We also went shopping on the Champs Élysées and went to the top of the Arc de Triomphe.

Parisian drivers are just as crazy as the last time I was here, with their odd parking habits and their non-existent road rules. We've had such a fabulous time eating in the little cafes and checking out the beautiful window displays, it's a shame to be leaving, but we definitely know its a place we'll be back to. Our suitcases are getting fuller and heavier with our shopping and even the carry on luggage is becoming difficult to hold, not a positive sign when you know there's are still 3 countries to visit before the final flight home.

We're currently on our way to Sweden, which is supposed to be much colder than the weather we've have for the past week. We've both never been, so it will be exciting to do something completely different again.

Much love to everyone at home,
