PARIS - Luxurious History

Paris 1In my last section, we were finishing up our time in London and gearing up for Paris!

We headed over to St Pancras Station and boarded the Eurostar for our non-stop train over to Paris. More on this in my last section!

Upon arrival into Paris Nord Station, we jumped onto the Paris Metro system, activating our Paris Visite Card.
This card gives you unlimited access to the Paris transit system for the duration of your chosen period.  Cards can be valid for 1 to 5 days and for zones 1 through 3 or 1 through 5, depending on your needs. These cards start from $18.00 and can be pre-purchased through Renshaw Travel.

We took a bus tour through the state of Rajasthan, Northwest India, and found ourselves in the Land of Kings.

When I left off, we had just arrived in to London and our first hotel.

Taking advantage of the prime location of The Safford Hotel, we started our explorations of London. Piccadilly Circus, Buckingham Palace and Mayfair are all within a 10 minute walk. Headed a bit further afield? Green Park Underground Station is steps away!
