  3. Ooh I can't wait to hear what staying in a hotel is like in Paris! When we were there a couple of weeks ago, we stayed in a hotel. It was..... well, everything you'd expect from a hostel. Yeeeah.

  4. Thanks y'all, and Dave we are seriously considering the I have to go stick my head back under the cold water faucet as I have the hangover from Hades.
