Jenny Sheraton’s Travel Diary

Friday, 01 Sep 2006

Location: Paris, France

MapI got up early and had breakfast at 7.30am to get on the metro early we have a big day ahead. I spent the day with Katie and Nicky and first we caught the metro to see Jim Morrison`s grave. It was very hard to find in the cemetary. The girls really wanted to see it - I just tagged along it didn`t really interest me.

Then back on the train and a short walk across a bridge to Notre Dame. We didn`t have time to go inside though. Then a walk back to Rue de Rivoli for some shopping but first a frappacino at Starbucks to get some energy. We walked all the way through to the Champs Elyses and is where I bought a ring with my winnings from Monte Carlo. It is beautiful and a fabulous memory of France forever.

We kept walking up to the Arc de Triomphe for photos and then caught the Metro back to the hotel for a lie down before the last night. I have walked for over 8 hours today and of course I`m sore again.

We all got dressed up for dinner and a show. We stopped at the Moulin Rouge to take photos then a short walk to Nouvelle Eve for a lovely dinner, of wait for it, chicken with a yabbie. The show was great with dancing, singing, acrobatics, illusions. It was a great show and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Then a walk back to O`Sullivans bar next to the Moulin Rouge for end of trip drinks.

Big day tomorrow off to see Sophie my penpal in Lyon that I have never met.
