Paris and the Seine

Pairs

semi-overcast 65 °F

Like I have done in the past, we flew to Dulles to get our international flight, this time on Iceland Air. This added leg saves up to several thousand dollars on a business class fare. Our flight over was uneventful stopping in Keflavek Airport where we entered the European Union, met up with some clients from Boston, and caught our connecting flight to Paris. We had a driver waiting for us and we were at the Champ Elysee Plaza hotel - about a block off the Champs Elysee by mid afternoon. We napped the rest of the day trying to combat the usual jet lag. We woke up the next morning to a wonderful buffet breakfast and cloudy but comfortable weather. Our plan was to take the train out to Versailles to tour the Chateau. The train works well. We took a cab to the RER station at Invalides and the trip took about 40 minutes. The Chateau was crowded, but not overwhelmed. This was an off day in the off season, so it would be hard to imagine the crowds in the peak of the summer.
