Beanie's Big Holiday, Day 10

Today's home time. What a fab hols!!!

So we finished off the brioche with jam on top.  I'm going to miss these breakfasts....

Then we brought our cases down four flights of stairs and put the keys into mailbox eight for the owner to collect later!

And then we walked over to the bus stop to get the number 54 which goes to Gare du Nord!

Here we go....!

And we got off here - there's the station!!  Behind that white van!

 Gare du Nord!  It's quite fancy really isn't it?!

 Hall Londres?  Andrea says that's where we go because  we're going back to London!

 When we got through the customs bit, Andrea bought a ham and cheese baguette to eat on the train for lunch!

 Then it was time to get on the train and we're off...!
I don't really want to leave but it'll be nice to see Tango and George again...!

 We're in England now!

 And here we are at St Pancras!!!

We then had a short walk up past the British Library.

And got the 73 bus back to Victoria Station!

 We saw some funny graffiti on the way back!

And going down Oxford Street.....

We saw a funny sculpture in Park Lane!!!  It's a juggler balancing an elephant!!!

And here we are at Victoria Station!

We got off at Hove Station, and on the way home we stopped at Tesco's to get some food in...

.....and came home!
I got new stamps in my passport..... what a brilliant holiday!

Beanie's Big Holiday, day 9

Monday morning, our last full day in Paris!!

Brioche and jam for breakfast, yummo!!

And then out down the road!

We got on the Metro at Brochant again....

And we got off at Rudy Ravioli!! That's a big street in Paris named after a famous Italian Opera singer!

We got off at the Tuileries!

 This is the Tuileries gardens looking towards the Louvre......

And that's the Tuileries looking towards Cleopatra's Needle and the Arc de Triomphe, Paris, and we're going to meet Andrea's parents for tea and cake!!

We had time for a little wander round though, and looked at some sculptures

There's Blackpool Tower again!

And Cleopatra's Needle.

The lamp posts are really posh here, too

And the road is REALLY wide!

We went up Rue Royale past Maxims which is super posh.  They don't let mice in apparently, so poo on them!

OH!!  Hang on.....!

It's a Laduree coffee shop!!!

A bit later, Andrea's Mum and Dad arrived and we went in for coffee and Panno Shoko Lah!
Afterwards, Mum decided to buy some macaroons for her friend Jill so we went into the shop next door and Andrea helped because Mum's a bit deaf.  Well, she's a lot deaf really.....!

And then we parted company and we went off for another walk.

From Cleopatra's Needle, we decided to walk through the Tuileries to the Louvre.

You can see the entrance through there!

Then we crossed the river......

There's those padlocks again!

Gosh this is pretty

Then we got on the subway at Pont Neuf!

And we got off at Art et Metiers subway station and it's just like the submarine out of 20,000 Leagues Under the sea!!!

It's made out of copper and has giant cogwheels in the roof!!!

And port holes too!

We saw a funny poster there too!

Gosh what a mad station!

Then we came back to Brochant.....

we saw this building on the way back to the apartment.

Then we finished off some food for lunch.

After lunch, we had to do our packing because we're going home tomorrow.
We're kind of sad because we've had such a brilliant time but then we want to sleep in our bed as well.

after we sorted out the bags, we went out for a last stroll around the neighbourhood, starting at Avenue de Clichy!

And did some window shopping too!

And then wandered home.  What a lovely trip!

We finished off the steak and fritters for dinner....

And the cbocolate birthday cake!!

And then it was time for bed!
