Over 40s Lazy Adventure in Paris

Join me for the Over 40s Lazy Adventure in Paris

This Over 40s Lazy Adventure in Paris is for people who don’t want to rush around Paris like mad tourists, — hot, tired, exhausted – and looking to get away from other tourists.

Dates: July 2018 (to be confirmed)

Here’s the scenario:

You want to visit Paris but you don’t feel like buzzing from tourist attraction to tourist attraction, constantly travelling on public transport, getting sore feet with all the constant walking.

You’d really prefer to take it easy, perhaps along these lines:

  • be met by a mini-bus at the airport who’ll take you to your hotel
  • enjoy a Champagne Cruise on the River Seine the first night, and a Welcome Dinner in a delightful restaurant
  • have late breakfasts
  • do a bit of shopping
  • have morning and afternoon teas in cute French tea salons
  • maybe see a movie or wander down a delightful street in “hidden Paris” far from the tourist crowd
  • take a barge cruise under and around Paris for a couple of hours
  • drop into a pub we’re walking past in the afternoons for a refreshing beer, glass of wine or a cocktail
  • and then have a lovely dinner with lots of laughter whilst getting to know the other people sharing the same adventure
  • on the last evening we’ll have a celebratory Farewell Dinner
  • after breakfast the next morning, you’re free to use the Airport Bus already arranged for you, or head off to more adventures of your own.

Sound like you? Spend 3 days and 2 nights where you can be lazy in Paris, and enjoy yourself totally with like-minded travellers. Couples welcome.

Please note:

  • there will be no visits to the Eiffel Tower, the Louvre or any other tourist destination
  • there will be no standing in queues for any touristy thing – ever, ok?
  • there will be no running, rushing or being out of breath
  • there will be lazy walking, strolling, sitting in lots of cafes and restaurants, lazy laughter and a general sense of all-round well-being – you ready for that?
  • Good, now let’s have some lazy fun!

Le Relais de Venise Restaurant in Paris 75017

In the mood for a very tasty steak and fries (“chips” and the French “frites“)? Pop over to Le Relais de Venise.

I love a good steak and I really love Chateaubriand, but if you’re not looking for something so rich, you might enjoy this great resto (and the great news is they’re also in London (x 3!) and New York!)

  • head on over to Porte-Maillot metro in the 17th arrondissement
  • no reservation is necessary
  • when ordering your how your steak will be cooked, you’ll only have TWO choices — rare or well-done, so please don’t ask for anything else :-)

This restaurant has also become known by the name of L’Entrecôte and you can ask for directions and everyone will know which restaurant you mean.

Once you’re seated at your table, your waitress will ask you: “Saignant?”  (rare), or “Bien cuit?  (well done)”.

That’s it — no other choices, no “medium” or “medium rare” — so knowing that up-front will make it easier to choose. The steak is thin so it can really only be cooked in two ways. Easy, non?

When your steak arrives it will be thinly sliced and covered with an amazing sauce (and it’s a secret recipe handed down through the generations), paired with delicious “frites” (or fries, also known as “hot chips” in the UK, Australia and New Zealand).
When you’re ready for dessert you’ll have many wonderful delicacies to choose from, so go ahead and enjoy!
