Day 17: Paris


Yesterday we took the Eurotunnel under the English Channel and drove the rest of the way to Paris.

We had an early start which was made slightly easier by Liz doing a bagel run for breakfast. I had half each of a salt beef and a tuna melt bagel.

Tristan drove us from London down to Folkestone where we parked our van on the Eurotunnel Train for the short trip to France. Once we had crossed under the channel Tristan did a fantastic job of remembering to drive on the right and we made it to Paris without a hitch.

Our gig in Paris was a wild one. We played at a wonderful venue called ‘Super Sonic‘. They put on great live music most nights of the week and make enough money off the bar to pay the bands without having a door charge.

We played with a local band ‘Avion’ and the Canadian band Pottery, both of which played amazing sets to an impressively-drunk Tuesday night audience.

Over the past few days I have been doing a lot of work on my playlist Tastes of Butter and I’m delighted to announce that it has been edited and is now complete. I’m sorry if anyone listened to all the seventy-odd songs that it contained when I first posted it, because there was some really terrible stuff, but it’s now a lot more concise while still containing a great diversity of subjects and styles.

Beth of the day goes to Ben for driving through Paris to the venue without making any navigational errors.

Très Bien Ben, another Triomphe!

  1. Dear Ben, fantastic photographer you have travelling with you. Couldn’t help but notice a distinct lack of green (manger plus de vert) in the food pics, must be the lens filter Tristan is using…. Dough is amazing though!
