On Sunday we went off on the TGV to Paris. This had been planned for some time as I wanted to visit L’aigulle en fete, the French trade show for leisure crafts and G intended to do some sights and take photos.
This was our first experience of the TGV, and we were very impressed; 3 hours to the centre of Paris – it beats flying anyday. The show was on a small scale compared to Birmingham and heavily weighted towards sewing/needlework. I was very interested in the ‘extreme knitting’ specialist, Rachel John and look forward to hearing from her.
When we met up again later in the afternoon, we took in some sights together (hence the photo of me at the Louvre pyramide), and enjoyed a fantastic bowl of French onion soup (at a matching fantastic price) on Bd Montparnasse, before heading home First class. It was a long day but great fun and I will be keeping an eye out for more bargain fares on the TGV.
