The French word for poodle is Caniche – which is understandable that in her bad French Mum called me a “cornichon” –
Maybe she needed some sleep. We were really tired when we got into the hotel. Mum loved the interiors of the Monte Cristo hotel so much that we immediately re-booked for our one night stay over next Monday.
Walking along the streets, we came across …
Other dogs – they’re usually not allowed inside patisserie ….
We didn’t bother going into any of them since we found out I was also allowed to have breakfast with Mum.
I waited as she went to the buffet …
Mum shared some parma ham with me.
We checked out of the hotel by mid morning and along with our friend Ellen, we went for a walk towards the Louvre for lunch.
Along the way we met some “bears”
We walked past the Pantheon.
As we headed towards Jardin du Luxembourg
Flowers in the park.
And after almost an hour of walking, we arrived at the Louvre.
Ellen asked to take a photo with me …
We had lunch at Cafe Marly
Incredible view of the Pyramid
We walked around a little before it was time to leave for Gare du Nord.
Arriving at Gare du Nord, we waited for our train platform
And then a two hour train ride to Calais where we got picked up by Folkestone Taxi – and driven to the Eurotunnel crossing. But I got scanned and checked before we entered the tunnel.
Less than an hour later we arrived at Folkestone where we were dropped off at the station to catch a train back to London. This is the part of the trip we don’t really enjoy – it feels that after such a. along journey and we are already back in the UK but still another journey before we’re home.
This time we were entertained …
Back to our normal mode of travel – by train.
Met the cutest little Pom – Pepe and it so happens we live really close by!
