We discovered a Manifestion going on. Expatriate Tamils have been demonstrating around the world against the Sri Lankan government's conduct of the war against Tamil Tiger rebels. I had no idea about any of this, I do watch the news, not heard about it!
We went to the apartment after all this excitement, met the owner, had a chat, got the keys etc etc and off we went. We went back to the square and made our way down towards the Eiffel Tower, to Pont de l'Alma.
We caught the Bateaux-Mouche towards Notre Dame, got off, walked around, had something to eat and then walked back..ready for some sleep, to start the next day!!!
Such a wonderful start to our holiday. I still cannot believe I have been, what took me so long! Meeting Leesa and Dawn was brilliant, so warm and friendly,they both just couldn't do enough for us. Also Dawn was preparing for her own holiday to Germany the next day, and Leesa for her trip to Austria. Thank you so much for all that you did.

We are going to meet up with a few bloggers...Leesa, Barbara, Dawn and Carolyn. And will be meeting at Aimee's Teashop. I think there might be one or two more people but not sure. Just how amazing is this!! We are going to have so much fun..chit chat, coffee, wine, food and meeting great people.
It all started with Carolyns trip to Paris and Leesa emailed me to see if I could arrange to be there too! I thought it was very sweet of her to think of me. At first I didn't know if I could go, money, timing etc, but thought no I really want to do this so I put all my effort into sorting arrangements out. My friend Caroline said she would like to come with me, which was great, and plans just took a few weeks. Found an apartment to rent, sorted travel, and hey presto.
Leesa and I have been in touch by email back and forth and we have also chatted on the phone a few times...and what a laugh we have had.. Leesa has been amazing, helping us with plans, maps etc..Thank you Leesa.
Camera ready..walking shoes...and off we go! See you all when we return.. Take Care.

It is truly amazing how the "World of Blogging" brings people together... How good friendships can start and open up a gate to a new path. I mustn't forget my good friend Sally, who got me on the road to Blogging....and to think I nearly gave up..!!
ps I also had a letter from my Mother-in-law...so sweet!

Just over two weeks ago Britt-Arnild did a post called I travelled the World, or - Do you want a Handwritten letter? I just thought how wonderful it would be. So I left a comment, received and email asking for my address..and waited. I did not have to wait long at all. I was very touched.
How Britt-Arnild does it, I just don't know. She has a family, she works, she travels with work, and she also has 4 other blogs...and she finds the time to send special letters to her blogging friends too!!!
If you would like to call in and see her great work...her other blogs are:-
I would just like to say a huge Thank you to Britt-Arnild. Such a lovely letter, I am pleased that writing helps you overcome the loneliness that can come with nights in hotel rooms. I feel for the people of Norway at the moment, it is still cold and snowing there. Lets hope that Britt-Arnild and her family get a bit of "spring" at Easter when they get away for a break!
