Well i`ve talked about it for long enough so being moored at Paddington was the ideal time to make my first trip on Eurostar to Paris.

So into the booking hall at St Pancras International and faced with several choices i chose the
package that gave me breakfast on the way out and dinner on the return trip, no expense spared this was a one off that would reduce my list of things to do before i die. Morbid, sad, spooky call it what you want but remember we`ve all got life but for sure it`s not forever.

The ticket came out of the machine at 7.16 and i was on board as the train departed at 7.27 with the aid of a personal escort to the head of passport control and the metal detector/bag search right to my own table seat in less than 11mins.

Took this pic on the way back as no time on the way out.

Gare Du Nord station.

This must be what Boris has planned for London.

One of the many trip boats on the R. Seine

Bridge decoration

Eiffel Tower had heavily armed police on patrol.

Arc de Triomphe

Looking from the Trocadero with Christmas stalls and ice skating stretching down to the Seine with the tower on the other side.

More Christmas stalls along both sides of the Champs Elysees. I consumed several cups of hot wine as i walked around to keep out the bitterly cold weather.

These vents must have been ventilation shafts from the Metro as many people gathered to take advantage of the warm air coming up.
