9th October - the end of the Grand Tour!

Today we'll be leaving Tours and the Loire Valley to begin the journey home.

I'm not sure whether or not we'll have time for any sightseeing en route - but I'll be travelling with my sketchbook to hand!

We're driving north initially alongside the River Loire to Paris via Orleans to leave the car at the Gare du Nord.

My sister and niece will then catch the metro out to Paris Charles de Gaulle Airport (CDG) for their journey home.

I'm anticipating I'll have a little time for a last look round Paris - or maybe a nice dinner before I catch the 8.00pm Eurostar back to London
Tip: If using the Eurostar do inspect the prices for different times of day. By leaving a little later in the day you can save an awful lot of money!

For those of you following my journey I hope you've enjoyed a virtual tour. When I get home I've got to go and log on and see how many comments I need to moderate!
