Our big French adventure – Day 5 – the journey home

Monday, November 26th, 2007

Hi all,

We got up early on Monday.. the journey home was relatively un-eventful (well compared to the national transport strike on the journey in.. :) ).

i'm ready to go home now..

I arrived in Annecy and we had another walk around the lake, town and up the hill to the church and chateaux and it was very beautiful. heres a pic of the girls in Annecy by the lake. I was hoping the market would be there but I think its not on Monday and many shops are shut on a Monday.. very European.. its the same in Holland.. i did want to buy a sausage .. just to prove to sarah I could indeed buy a sausage in France… !:) I couldnt find a boulangerie open though so .. it’ll have to be next time..

From Annecy to Paris (more…)

Our big French adventure – Day 2 – Beautiful Annecy :)

Hi All,

I was woken at 5 am by the sound of gurgling, clicking, snapping, tinkling sounds.. and I’m wondering what could that be..?

It was a combination of Tarpis and Cleos tummies… (mostly Tarpi)

I dont think there is anything more calculated to strike fear into the heart than the thought of your two dogs both having diarrhea in a French hotel… with carpets.. !

I threw on my coat and took them for a pit stop outside.. raining…. (more…)

Our big French adventure – Day 1 – Does Paris have it in for the Palmer’s?..

Hi all,

Good heavens.. what a little adventure we have had. ! :)

First there was Mutti and the arabs.. then Mark and Ros and the car being broken into.. and dad and the briefcase/passport stolen,

and this time the French threw a train, bus and tram strike for us!

you have to laugh… Its a good thing we had 4 1/2 hours to get between stations and my group of google maps to get there..

Well the day started well (as it does when you are blissfully ignorant of whats going on in Paris :) ).. we got to the station with plenty of time to spare, everything going well.. we found our seat.. (more…)
