On Our Way Home from CDG Paris


Terminal 2: CDG Paris
Terminal 2: CDG Paris

Time to go home, time to go home…

We have had a very leisurely trip out to the airport via Metro and RER and enjoyed a parting lunch chez Paul.  The building is very attractive for an airport terminal with a curving roof of wooden strips it feels much more pleasant than the usual steel and glass one is used to at modern airports.  Trust the French to add a bit of style.Slight delay in departing but no trouble really and our car, a Citroen of course, was waiting patiently in the Heathrow Terminal 4 long stay car park.  Believe it or not it was cheaper for us to park it there for a week than to buy two return tickets Bath-Heathrow.  Driving in home in the dark in the wind and rain we are certainly back in Britain and heading for winter.  Time to hibernate, I think.

    Dear Doug and Kate,

    So glad that you have had a good trip to Paris and have got home this weekend , rather than going this weekend which you so easily could have. I am so sorry for the Parisians with this dreadful massacre. Something is wrong in the world; and all the current remedies seem woefully lacking. Lets speak soon. J

      Yes, it is absolutely awful. It seems so much more real having just been in the city. We couldnhave been in one of those restaurants.

    Glad you are back sound and happy. Awful awful stuff what’s going on in Paris… Has Paris been singled out as a city for some reason? Why? I was in London in July 2005 during London’s terrorist attacks. We didn’t know for a few hours with my husband if each other was alright. I was accounting for my stuff in the morning to see if nobody was caught in the bombing… And here in Sydney, I had a ‘date’ with my nephew and niece to go to the Lindt Cafe in Martin Place on the next day, when the hostage situation and shooting took place there… Lucky escapes…

    Pretty bad weather here. My drive back to Sydney from Sussex Inlet on Friday, could have been yours back home. Pouring rain, dark clouds, fog, misery… Except I suppose that it’s much warmer here. Cold for Sydney’s spring 19 degrees…

      You’re right. As another friend said, it could have been this weekend that we went to Paris and then who knows.

      Don’t worry we’ll have squirreled away enough nuts by then. BTW: I actually saw a squirrel burying a nut in Henrietta Park here in Bath several weeks ago. I wasn’t quick enough with my phone to video it. Pity.
