Day 4 – The Road To Paris

We set off fairly early yesterday morning for the final leg of our mini tour, leaving our hotel in Beauvais at around 7:15am. As soon as we stepped foot out of the door it started to rain so rain coverings were donned and we… Continue Reading “Day 4 – The Road To Paris”

Day 2 And Day 3

I’m writing this from a hotel room in Beauvais at the end of our third day. ‘Where’s day 2?’ I hear you cry. Well, I’ll tell you. Day two was horrific, il pleut…..a lot! I was soaked through at lunchtime and really not loving… Continue Reading “Day 2 And Day 3”
