Over 40s Lazy Adventure in Paris September 2018

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.

Option 1 — Dates: September 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!

Paris Transport Changes September 1st 2015

At the beginning of September 2015,  a major overhaul of the Paris transport pass [Le Pass Navigo] will affect most locals and tourists — and change is good.

Paris Transport Changes come into force September 2015

What are the Paris transport changes?

The Navigo transport pass:

Le Pass Navigo will now be one unique price for the entire five zones in Ile-de-France region, making it so easy for everyone.

The price for a Navigo pass covering all of these zones will be set at €70 a month or €770 a year, meaning all commuters in and around the capital will pay the same price.

The idea is to make it easier and cheaper for those living in areas outside Paris, with the hope they will leave their cars behind and jump on a train instead. An added bonus is that it could creating a more regional identity, rather than the ‘us and them’ division between Paris and the suburbs as which currently exists.

Someone travelling to Paris from Orly will pay the same as someone who only travels through the centre of Paris from the Eiffel Tower to the Pere Lachaise.
