One of the reasons we didn’t do tour buses was demonstrated when, on a spur of the moment, we decided to go to Paris for New Years. Our hotel was supposed to be in downtown Paris, so we got there, we were going to dump the tour and head out on our own. But, when we arrive, our accommodations have changed to a hotel out by the new airport and there was no regular mass transit to the airport yet. So much for on our own.
We took only one photo worthwhile, but we did shoot some videos. Check out the crazies driving around the Arc!
