Avolites Birthday trip to Paris
7th May 2004

Our company, once again made a good choice of taking all its employers to Paris.
We all met up at Waterloo to catch the Eurotunnel train to Gare du Nord.

The sun was shining as we
set off for the boat cruise, followed by the climb on 
the Eiffel Tower!!!!! That's right CLIMB by foot! I was knackered!!
Then we completed a long walk to the Arc de Triomphe and it  was even exhausting!

Sacre Couer was extremely beautiful as was the Notre Dame Cathedral.
The wining and dining in a French restaurant made a great finale to our day in Paris.

Notre Dame in its full glory

Bit breezy when you're near the river!

Le Pont Neuf - We've arrived at the River Seine but cannot find our boat!!

Shad, May, Adam & I look enthusiastic.....
