Paris then on to Edinburgh

Final days of our trip and here is that crazy "Arc de Triomphe" again......traffic shot later in post 

Today we were bused to "The Eiffel Tower" and boy is it HUGE 

had fun taking some mobile selfies 

another angle 
We went up to the 2nd floor and yep those pics are on my camera so will be in a camera type post as it does not speak to google nicely lol 

Now just look at the traffic going around "Arc de Triomphe".....and those who enter this roundabout have right of way and there are at least 8 MAJOR streets entering here.....

Very busy for sure lol 

The Arc de Triomphe honours those who fought and died for France  with the names of all French victories and generals inscribed on its inner and outer surfaces. 
Beneath its vault lies the Tomb of the unknown soldier from World War I.

That night we went to the infamous "Moulin Rouge" and it was fanatastic.....they had a couple on rollerskates on what was really just a small table doing the most amazing FAST skating ♥


This bathroom was on the ground floor of the hotel "Du Collectionneur" incredible basins 

and plenty of gold trimming

another view of the ladies loo lol 

another foyer area 

and stairs, plenty of them 
and enjoyed our stay in Paris and I may be back with more pics in future

We then ended our tour and went to the airport with Woody feeling relaxed

to fly to our next place.....Edinburgh ♥

we flew in and had ourselves a very late lunch at this interestingly named place and the food was delish 

We also got ourselves these tasty treats for snacking in our room ☺

We found a bed and breakfast just out of Edinburgh (after a scary rental car drive into Edinburgh eek) and it was easy bus travel back into town and walking to many other places 

Just a simple en-suite ☺

Woody approved of course 

and it had these neat twisting stairs......glad my knees have been good on this tripping 

It was a 15min walk to this place for tea 

quaint building 

and must say we had a great meal there.......
Now our own travelling around will be posted over the next ♥♥
love Scotland for sure xoxoxoxo
