Tripping Around

The past couple of months have pretty much been spent working away in Colchester and London (with a couple of work trips to Kosovo), but we did manage a few short trips away to try and make the most of the European summer. In July, we spent a long weekend in Paris with Sharon, and had a most excellent time! We checked out the city’s more spectacular sites - the Eiffel Tower, Notre Dame, Arc de Triomphe, the Louve.

One of the most tres jolie sights was the beautiful Saint-Chappelle - a 13th Century cathedral featuring a room decked out with beautiful stained glass windows.

We also had a most pleasant time wandering around many a pretty rue in the Marais (our adopted neighbourhood), the Latin Quarter and Montmartre, lounging in brasseries and cafes and indulging in a croissant or two. Paris rocks!

In July, we also paid Ye Olde Cambridge a brief visit where we hung out amongst the college buildings and watched many a punter pass down the mighty Cam.

We also made our way to Belgium for a weekend. We spent most of our time in Brussels, checking out the most spectacular Grand Place and the cobbled streets surrounding it, and of course, indluging in Belgian beer and chocolate.

We also made a brief trip to Antwerp - a most funky city north of Brussels.
