I know Lia since we were 16 and we are very harmonious together. Neither of us dominate the other and neither of us get annoyed with the other. Which can happen when you are together 24 hours a day for 3 to 4 days. And we also share the same humour. You can imagine the fun we have.
As the weather forecast was not very good for our days in Paris, I had to pack more than I wanted. An umbrella, a coat and boots that could withstand rain, lots of different shoes for walking, meaning they had to be right for my support soles (we are getting older...). Layers of clothing, socks etc.
Fortunately the weather forecast was too pessimistic. We had half an hour of drizzle the first day and 1 hour the last day. So just 1 1/2 hours in three days.
On our second evening, Ron texted me: "Here is another budget for you and Lia. Go crazy!"
.... We did.
At the Jardin du Luxembourg. Wearing boots as it drizzled.
Ordering a crèpe (pancake). Wearing my leather coat which is excellent for spring weather.
I left my handbag in the hotel as this Camper bag is super light and can hold more things.
Below: sewing on a button on Lia's coat in the hotel. It had come off and I don't mind sewing. She does. What are friend for.....
This is what I was wearing when we came on the train. Similar in this post but in Paris with a sweater.
Below: The Louvre
Below: look what Lia's camera did with the above photo!! Amazing isn't it?
Below: in the garden of The Louvre: Les Tuileries. Wearing my new brogues. Which of course, made my feet hurt after 8 hours walking.
Below: having one of our many coffee breaks.
Below: the striped jacket was on tour as well. This time with an orange top.
Below: Lia and I, again on a terrace, waiting for the pina colada and the mojito.
It was great fun and I bought too much stuff, amongst others a top and jacket by Kenzo.
You will be hearing more of this in another post.
