Memories! we stayed in Paris for a month to celebrate our 40th wedding anniversary & our apartment was just nearby so this was our morning commute.For some reason Le Jardin du Luxembourg was closed until 1pm.
The view from the outside...

So we went and checked out Place Saint-Sulpice and Eglise Saint-Sulpice

Thanks. Pretty happy with the quality given I only use a phone.Your photos of Giverny are excellent.
Not sure about that. There were plenty of staff placed throughout the house and plenty of people with cameras and phones out. Certainly didn't see any signs..... if I did, I would have complied.I thought you weren't supposed to take photos in the kitchen and scullery
An absolutely exquisite place. The kind of place that just makes you feel good walking around.
Exactly. It's a really easy half day trip from Paris. 2 hours in the car or train, and 2hrs walking around the property.... of course they have a large gift shop at the exit, navigating that is included in my time allocation aboveAn absolutely exquisite place. The kind of place that just makes you feel good walking around.
I hope the wine offerings were better than the basic spirits shownCDG T1 Star Alliance lounge .... apparently it's a new / refurbished lounge.
We were directed to a small room within the lounge - not sure what the access rights are to get in here, but it wasn't that flash! I actually wondered if we were in the right location, but given everyone in this area was also onboard ..... I must have been.
There was no agent or any signage ... so it could easily be a bit of a free for all. Underwhelming is the word!
As we were on a midday flight, and had breakfast at the hotel - we didn't indulge.

Nice outdoor area, unfortunately populated by smokers.

Not too shabby at all what type of aircraft?Righto, time to head home and see what those kids have been up to.
We haven't stepped foot on a Singapore Airlines aircraft for > 15 years. Will be interesting to see how it stacks up with QF.... midday departure for a 13hr flight will provide the perfect conditions for a test flight

FWIW, CDG is still issuing the golden TPR invites.

Indeed. Maybe the better lounge had moved to another location - because that one certainly wasn't First Class standard.I thought CDG T1 was a bit like Hogwarts, with the criss-crossing escalators.
I'm a QF / OW flyer so haven't got much of an idea on Star Alliance lounges .... but this one was a dud.I hope the wine offerings were better than the basic spirits shown
