The past week we have been in Paris, staying in a rather nice apartment near the Bastille. We travelled to and from Paris by TGV from Saint Pierre des Corps. It's a bit of an odd time to take an annual holiday, but it does get us out the house at a time of year where not moving from in front of the fire is always an option.
We visited 4 museums and Retromobile, did some shopping, and tried not to look too much like yokels or foreigners. I don't know how convincing we were, but after 6 years in France Paris is starting to feel like our big city rather than a place to amaze about.
Until we get our thoughts together and write properly about what we did, some photos (on a transport theme).
The metro. I like the metro a lot. This photo shows the benefits of being able to stand really still...
An altogether more stylish form of Transport - a 1955 Alpha Romeo Giulietta spider Bertone. Posssibly the prettiest car at Retromobile
