24 hours in Paris πŸ‡«πŸ‡·

So the tour reached the French capital playing at the one venue I’d been dreading after losing my best friend there in an attack 2 years ago

Even had a chat with a sad pigeon and gave it both my pastries as it had lost a foot

There hasn’t been a day like yesterday when I’ve cried that much in decades everything suddenly hit me like a steam train πŸš‚ just how much I miss him but I came and did what I had to do and said my goodbyes

Today was a day off (Saturday) so what else to do Christmas shopping Parisian style

So we hit the champs elysees with gusto lol πŸ˜†

Louis Vuitton. Tiffany’s Stopping to see some Christmas πŸŽ„ horses 🐴 as well as lunch at Paul’s followed by a trip up the Eiffel tour

Back to the hotel for a quick change and back out to see the lights So all in all it’s been a great day

Tour rolls on and we got the U.K. on Tuesday
