~Bienvenue a Paris/Welcome to Paris...2nd September, 2015~Day 2

Further on from my last post on our trip that my DS James took me on we are now settled on Singapore Airlines which shows us on the map the route Singapore to Paris.
And I can't believe this is happening
Even though I have been back now for 2 weeks it's like a dream and I pinch myself to see that we really did do this epic trip!!!

After aprox 14 hours we land in Paris and I spot the sign
Bienvenue a Paris...........we are here!!!!!!

Prints line the walls

We are then transferred to our Hotel Best Western Folkestone

Looking up around us

We happened upon our first Blackboard Menu

and first sighting of a Parisian Cafe

So excited to see this

After a little wander around we come back to this delightful Cafe and have some drinks while we think about lunch

Pizza for James and the Fillet of Sole and Scallops for me

Followed by a A$10 coffee!!!!!!

Our very attentive Waiter

On our wanders we happened upon a Sans Gluten Patisserie

Eclair Chocolate and Eclair Caramel..........sans gluten

Next door to the Hotel there was a Delicatessen

Goods on offer




And Macarons

The next morning we followed the intriguing steps which led to a Breakfast Room

Hot Milk is offered with Coffee as it was in Latvija/Latvia also

Cold Meats are also offered 

The next day we purchase tickets for bus/boat rides that show us some fabulous sights including the Moulin Rouge.......more of this in the next post

I was intending to post about our trip every day or every other day but this has been nigh on impossible as we are having internet/computer issues and working on fixing them. 

Till next time.........Dzintra xo

You did it. You went...remember when we were saying how far off your trip was? And when you where thinking if there were any bakeries that baked without gluten? Memories now, but great ones my dear. FABULOUS!

Hello Dzintra,

Loved seeing your photo's of Paris, gosh that food menu was very French, I would have a hard time eating anything but the veggie soup. How did you go with your food allergies.

Happy days.
