{Travel} Last day in Paris!

Today (30 July 2012) is our last day in Paris and I cannot believe how fast the time flew by! Murphy sucks! Things you don't enjoy doing takes forever and things you love flies by! Oh well this is part of life and we have to start getting used to it? NOT! Who wants to get used to something like that?!

Anyway so today was filled with different emotions again, we were so sad to leave because this meant back to work and winter! But also so happy because now we can go back to driving around in our own cars and eating all the South African food that I have missed! Like boerewors and pap! Yummy! On that note I think I have to invite my mother over to make me some pap. (I suck with this, mine always burns)
We took the bus to Notre Dame to do our FINAL shopping. We bought the prettiest oil paintings and more souvenirs! I think I've spent more money on souvenirs that on food here! Oops!

We had a lovely lunch in a street across and up the road from Notre Dame.  



And each of us had something different, I had a Dagwood (Pic 1), Cedric had Mash and Sausage (Pic 2), Alan had Beef Tartar (Pic 3) and Lelande had a cheese, tomato and pesto baguette (Pic 4).





And some of the interesting cocktails they had on the menu! Hilarious!


On our way home Cedric took some pictures. :) My talented boyfriend!



After our busy day we relaxed a bit at home (which meant packing and cleaning), and went for a nice dinner at the same place as our first dinner on our first day.





And for dinner Cedric and I had the Fish of the day which was Sole and Salmon (Pic 1), Lelande had a burger, which came without a roll, haha (Pic 2) and Alan had the duck (Pic 3).




After dinner we rushed to the Eiffel Tower to watch the lights go on for the last time! That was sad because I loved doing this! 




Of course I couldn't leave Paris without having my last Nutella Crepes at the best little kiosk ever!


And the next morning we were ready and on our way at 06:30am and not looking forward to another loooong butt flight! 


After 24hours of travelling we home safely and the unpacking started, washing and cleaning and now I wish I was back at the ET. But look at ALL the souvenirs! EEEEKKK!


And this is what I leave you with, a post with a crap load of pictures to entertain yourselves. Hope you enjoyed it! Took me a while to finish but at least I kept my promise and my holiday posts are up to date! Now till the next big holiday, I will keep you happy with weekend happenings.
