Virtual Holiday: Week 8

Let's go to France

Another week and we are still under Stage 4 restrictions, but that doesn’t stop us continuing our virtual holiday to Europe. This week we go to France, somewhere I haven’t been before.

And we kick off our trip of this beautiful country by visiting Paris, Lille and Strasbourg. 

The first city we’re going to visit is Paris.

My colleague, Alex, went to the Palais Garnier Opera House where her daughter loved that there was enough room for her Dad to give her a wizzy dizzy.
