IMG 1775A quiet drive through increasingly built up areas until we hit Paris.

Like all computers Doreen lacks common sense and takes us straight to the busiest least motorcycle friendly roads of Champs Elysees and Arc de Triomphe and then around the Place de la Concorde. Amazingly we get around these unscathed and find the hotel pretty much at third go.

We take the Citadine hotel parking as anything else seems too fraught, we have to make another circumnavigation to get there. We're delighted with the room which is spacious and very well equipped.

Dinner at one of the local cafes (Chez Fernand)  is excellent albeit very expensive. No surprise there.
