    père lachaise is such a lovely part of paris, but yes, i never managed to see all the dead people i wanted to see.

    picard didn’t let you take pictures of their frozen goods? oh well, i’d rather look at pastry…

    Oh I love cemeteries. I find them fascinating places to explore and often the tombstones of “ordinary people” can be just as illuminating. The sculptures are always spectacular too.

    I can almost smell those pastries from here too. Argh. The torture! Can’t wait to hear about your train adventure. Yes, anything involving fear is an instant adventure! I always travel with the mentality that the more disastrous a day you have, the better the story to remember for years to come 🙂

    Aw, I’m blushing! 🙂

    Wait, he’s called “Wally” in Australia? He has a different name in French, too, something totally random like Charlie. (I’m assuming, anyway, that you mean Waldo, he of the red-and-white-striped sweater. If not, I’m not a crazy person, really!)

    Happy travels tonight! I’ve been in one of those 6-bunk couchettes before, they’re really not so bad.

    I love how she has her head in her hands.

    How on earth do you stay so slim with your dietary dalliances?

    Frogsandmen: One of Picard’s stores didn’t. I snuck into another one and went photo-crazy, though!

    Helen: That how I feel, too – they’re fascinating places to just wander around in. And believe you me, this whole toe debacle has given me enough story fodder to last me a lifetime! I arrived in Florence an hour ago and already have several experiences under my belt… just have to blog two weeks of Paris first. But I’ll probably time-travel my posts 😛

    Camille: I only speak the truth 🙂 I’ve come across the Waldo version, but Charlie? Crazy French. Luckily there were only four people in my couchette, which was lucky because the bottom beds both broke!

    Fiona: Rather appropriate for a tomb!

    Whisperinggums: Definitely the best part of blogging 🙂

    Kath: Oh don’t you worry, I’m doing my best to change that! In fact, I just bought a dress and skirt a couple of sizes up because I’m determined to be curvier at the end of this trip 🙂 Bring on the gelato, Italy!

    oh my, I’m drooling over those pastries!

    Simply Life: Camille certainly knows her food-shop-stuff!

    I like the European approach to cemetaries. I remember the ones in Sweden being so beautiful, and people spending their lunchtimes in them to enjoy the trees and the sunshine.

    I would comment more but I’m off to get naked and fly around my house……

  11. Hannah

    Conor: They really can be such beautiful, restful (*giggle*) places to while away a few hours. Oh, and will you be my naked soulmate-friend?

    I missed the cemetery AND the catacombs, gah!

    Ha, I totally forgot that you Aussies call him Wally instead of Waldo…hehe, love it.

  13. Hannah

    Amber: Return trip together to do all the things we both missed? 🙂

  14. Amber Shea (Almost Vegan)

    Agreed! Say, how do you feel about Scandinavia/Russia and/or South America?…

  15. Hannah

    Amber: I’m in! Russia for a Tolstoy and Dost-Man pilgrimage? South American, I’m all about Chile (Pablo Neruda), and Scandinavia… we can find chocolate there, right?
