Now that I am (almost) fully recovered from my discitis Chris and I decided that it was time to start what we had dreamed about doing in our retirement – lots of trips to places we had always wanted to go to and had somehow missed.
We had been to Paris before – on our honeymoon almost 30 years ago! But, although we have passed through the place several times, we have not stayed there for any period longer than a night. Unlike our honeymoon, this time we decided to go by train – not possible in those dim and distant days. The journey and our hotel were arranged by Railbookers with whom we have had many dealings. As ever, there arrangements worked perfectly and included a free glass of champagne at St Pancras.
