11-12 June 2019 The journey

After a long and drawn out journey, I finally made it to Paris!

The journey started by leaving home at 2.30pm, then checking my bag in at Emirates by 3.00pm. At least it went all the way to Paris without me. The first leg was Melbourne to Singapore. I managed to stay awake so it would be easier to sleep in the Aerotel Hotel. What a dog box that turned out to be! It was tiny and you had to go to the end of the corridor for the shower and toilet. It was really good to get to lie down though. Breakfast was fast – pancakes, fruit and yoghurt with coffee from their machine. Too bad I didn’t have time to try the pool or the gym out.

On to Dubai with a spare seat beside me. That was a bonus. Dubai Airport is extremely quiet. They don’t overdo the announcements like most other airports do, which means you need to take notice of notices and read signs.

The Dubai to Paris leg was crowded. I struggled to stay awake even though I watched three movies and finished my book. It took ages to get my bag but at least it did appear! Fairly simple getting a taxi out the front and the driver was friendly. I tried out my French on him and he seemed to appreciate it.

Les Bulles de Paris is in a great spot. Close to Jardin du Luxembourg in one direction and Notre Dame Cathedral in the other. Didn’t have time to do much when I got there but get ready for bed. The bed is about three times the size of the one at Singapore airport and very comfy.
