Just a quick update for those of you who are checking your email enthusiastically each day:
Wednesday: Today we went to the Louvre and the Catacombs and also took a night bike tour with Fat Tire Bike Tours and totally dominated the streets of Paris. I mean it was seriously like the Tour de France, minus the tight suit, helmet and road bike. Other than that, it was the exact same thing. We highly recommend the night bike tour with Fat Tire Bike Tours if you visit Paris, London, Bercelona or Berlin. After the bike tour, we went out to a pub-ish type place with the tour guides to enjoy a night with the locals. We heard that if you smile at guys here, it doesn’t just mean hello. We’ve tried very hard to have a mean look on our face when we make eye contact with a guy.
Thursday: Today our tour guide from last night gave us a personal tour of his favorite spots in Paris. He took us to a place that claimed to have the world’s best falafel. We’ve been deprived all our lives because that stuff was awesome. We turned a 30 minute train ride to Versailles into a 2 hour train ride. Don’t ask us how, we just managed to do it. It was well worth the time and amazing. We rented a bike and rode through the gardens. In our opinion, this is the only way to see the gardens. Do it.
We are off to London and will post again soon!
Update: Below are pictures from Wednesday and Thursday.
