Lyon was followed by Paris, a very big city with a lot to see, but it's all spread out, so we had to take the Metro everywhere. We went on 2 walking tours and saw where Amelie Poulin was filmed. We returned the next day for a drink at the café where she worked.
We also went on a day trip to Mont St-Michel which was a very interesting place, if touristy. We walked up and down around the village staircases and streets (including a path that was only about 2 feet wide!
After Paris, a train ride to Calais and a boat to Dover and finally a bus to Canterbury where we stayed right outside the cathedral close. No sightings of the archbishop though. Canterbury is a very nice town, old and quaint yet somewhat international. Quite an interesting place. We went on a ghost tour which was interesting as well as an evening service in the Cathedral.
Finally on to London where we again went on 2 walking tours which were very interesting. We also went to services at Westminster Abbey (2 services as the clocks changed and we didn't know it!) We went to Harrod's and saw the "Dude" (Mr. Al Fayed) who runs the shop and passed by Buckingham Palace and saw that the Queen was in and caught some of the changing of the guard. The hoards of people though made it hard to see anything, until we decided to leave and nearly got run over by the men in bear skin hats.
A final day-trip to Bath, Stonehenge and Salisbury which were all very interesting places, and then the next day, on the train to Gatwick, plane to Toronto and finally a plane to Montreal.
But it didn't stop there, we had to go to Richard's to pick up the keys and drop Dave off at the bus station before finally arriving at home.
