After 20hrs flying time and an 8 hour stopover in Singapore, a bus, a train and a metro we are in our spacious Paris hotel. I had quite forgotten how small they really are. The door just opens enough to let you into the room and bangs against the bed. Yes it is small but it will do the trick for us. Best of all the concierge was able to let us into our room well before 2pm. We will be able to have a shower stretch out and then we can head out and get familiar with Paris all over again. We are in the 6th arrondissement - so within easy walking distance to the Eiffel Tower, Boulevard St Michel, Montparnasse and lots more.
At the moment it is bliss just being horizontal and stretched out.
Lesson for the day - I am not a 20year old backpacker and I dont have to do things the cheapest we can. Yes we can use a taxi and no we dont have to handle luggage up and down Metro steps.
Nous somme ici and bonjour Paris.
