Jump to last reply

In 2010 DD and I were in london heading to Paris when the volcanic ash problem hit. We lost our flights and paid 600 euro (one way) for the train. We must have picked something up on the train because by the next morning we were both ill. I had paid a small fortune for a apartment with views of the Eiffel Tower but struggled with the location in terms of eating places and in the end we left Paris very disillusioned. I know some of this was our fault as we were too ill to try very hard but we struck some very rude shop keepers and my daughter, in particular, was sadden by our stay there. Once we got to Rome and found an English speaking Doctor we were much better. We are back in Paris on the 20th Feb for four nights, staying at the Madeliene Hotel and I really want this to be a great visit.

I am looking at the Fat tyre tour for her but am waiting to see what the weather is like. I would love to eat at some really nice friendly restaurants, go to a show (my daughter wants to go to Moulin Rouge but I am not sure) shop and just have a lovely time. Any suggestions?
