La ville de l'amour

Well I have been such a busy beaver over the last weeks that I have not made the time to update. As usual while traveling the internet connections are variable at best so I will have to keep the pictures to a minimal.

So first off the 3-day crash through Paris with my brother and Danielle was great. We stayed right next to the Eiffel Tower and of course went to the top. We made sure to see all the sights, as it was my brother's first journey to Paris and remake some good memories for the rest of us. We did the tour route and saw Arc du Triumph, Champs de Elysees, Notre Dame, a variety of palaces, The Louvre, Tuileries Gardens, Champs de Mars and the works.

We of course delved into as many pastries as we could get our hands on and did some shopping in and around the Lafayette Galleries. However the biggest event of all was when I left the lovebirds to have a date night alone in Paris and my brother PROPOSED to Danielle at The Louvre, which ended in my brother being ENGAGED!! The city of love delivered and it looks like I will have some extended family coming my way. We then took the Chunnel back to London where I had a sad goodbye with my Family.
