Warning: Photo heavy. On Friday 20th June, 2014 at about 2pm, Louise and I headed off to St. Pancras International for the first leg of our French Adventure 2014. We ate a lunch at the Betjeman Arms and meandered over to the check-in for Eurostar. No sooner had we got through than they announced that the train was boarding. Next stop, Paris Gare du Nord.

Looks like tonight will be curry night. This is usually Thursday, so I have no idea what we’re going to do then, but we’ll see. Anyway, Louise wasn’t up to a visit to Penderel’s Oak today and I wasn’t up to cooking, so take-out it is. We found a local curry house on Hungry House, and have some food on order.
