We wake up on market day in Puy L’eveque and have time for just a bit of shopping.
The taxi arrives just when the rain gets heavy and off we go to Cahors to jump on a train.
Just something we passed along the way, gotta love France.
Cahors is a big busy town and this is the lovely train station were the high speed train will take us to Paris.
One of our favorite waiting games, the “stand on one foot”, other favorites include “I’m thinking of a number” and “all the words you can think of that start with ‘a'”.
A little slice of home that totally earned it’s place in the backpack even though it was only used half the time.
One of the many advantages of being 5 and 7.
Back in Paris we navigate to our second air b’n’b apartment. I really felt the loss of our red and white GR trail symbols as we wove through cars and people instead of trees and mud.
Welcome to my new home in Paris! I hope this place stays on air b’n’b forever, I love, love, loved it!
We treated ourselves to a very non-French lovely Italian meal mere steps from the apartment.
And topped it off with gelato that the guy somehow made look like a flower, pffffff as if gelato needs to be even more appealing.

After an early morning train from Gisor we are back in Paris. TGV here we come
I’d just explained we were taking 4 different trains that day, for a grand total of 8 hours of travel!
I honestly didn’t see that coming.
All is well once again and we explore the train station and people watch.
Family pic, so far so good with the Blundstones, they handled Paris and Normandie like a dream but the real test is about to begin.
The TGV (super fast train) is nice, and I mean real nice.
And the view is even better. Paris to Bordeaux in a few hours while sitting comfortably, not bad my friends, not bad.
