Things have been a little quite over here but I’m not even sorry, I’m currently on the best family holiday ever! If you follow me on Twitter or Instagram you may have already seen some of the photos and you may also know that the trip didn’t get off to the best start….
Mum, Dad, Matt, Mike and Ellie flew out on Saturday and I was supposed to join them on Sunday but thanks to a delay on my first flight I missed my connection and had to wait for the next flight out on Monday. I thought I was going to have some kind of breakdown in the middle of Charles De Gualle airport; I wanted nothing more than to get to my family. There was only one thing for it…I had to distract myself and after all I love Paris so I decided to make the most of it.
I got a taxi into town only to discover half the roads were closed for the Tour De France so that was an experience.
After eventually manoeuvring round the blockades I made the most of the sunshine and just took a long walk around the city to stretch my legs ahead of my 8 hour flight.
After tiring myself out, also pretty certain I’d managed to burn my shoulders I thought I best head for some shade and really is there any other place to do that than Ladurée?
If you don’t already know it is one of my absolute favourite places and any opportunity to visit must be taken especially since there isn’t one in Edinburgh.
Still feeling a little sorry for myself, but a good deal better than when I arrived I headed back to my hotel for the night keen to get a good start in the morning so there was no chance of missing my flight to St Maarten.
