As I mentioned in my last post, I was lucky enough to organise a very impromptu trip to France and the UK recently. What I didn’t divulge, is that some stowaways joined us on our travels.
Daniel and Isabel eloped in my daughter's luggage intent on marrying in Paris. We discovered them on our first morning and they insisted on being taken straight to Notre Dame. We were thrilled to be witnesses to their nuptials.
As their little legs didn’t get them very far (you can see them here resting looking at the Seine), we ended up being their tour guides.
They wanted to seal their love forever (as if being married in Notre Dame was not enough) by locking their love on The Pont des Arts. I had to write their names and my daughter selected the spot. Their love is now forever tightly locked.
As part of their honeymoon, Daniel and Isabel wanted to visit the Louvre. They enjoy Venus de Milo, The Napoleon III Apartments and lots more. They were knocked over in the crush at The Mona Lisa and ended up being overwhelmed by the over 600,000 square feet of exhibition space and we had to retire for un café et un croissant.
After a quick trip to the Pompidou, Daniel and Isabel gave us the slip and disappeared into the city of love to begin their lives together.
