Hello everyone! The third day of our journey is almost over and we have lots of news and emotions to share with you.
Today we have finally reached France. Having such a long drive yesterday (1230 km on Day 2) the distance that we had to overcome today seemed to be really funny - only 400 km! We woke up early as always and set out in the direction of Paris. Unfortunately, there is not so much to say about Belgium, since we did not have a chance to discover the country or at least enjoy the views from the car windows, as we have crossed the country when it was still dark outside. But we do hope that maybe next time when we go for a new trip we will certainly not miss out the beauty of this land.
We expected to reach Paris by 9 a.m. at the latest and we were almost in line with the plan. The only thing we overlooked were the traffic jams in the morning hours on the Boulevard Périphérique - the ring road, which is a link between the city of Paris and its suburbs. Although the actual speed limit here is 80 km/h, it is not more than 40 km/h on average that one may expect to drive during the day considering its busy traffic. In our case we were moving really slow, as the traffic jam was quite big. But we have considered it as an advantage in a way, since we had more time to think and to decide which line to take to make necessary exits and turns. It is good to mention that our navigator worked really well and there were no situation when it had led us in a wrong direction.
All in all we have passed last 19 km till our final stop in Paris within 1,5 hours thanks to this traffic jam:)) But how happy were we to know that the whole evening and also the next day we will have a real break from driving and will have a pleasure to walk across La Seine, enjoy the views from La Tour Eiffel, visit cosy cafes on the streets of Monmartre and admire the grandeur of Notre Dame de Paris. So let's not waste time and enjoy the holidays. We will post more photos today-tomorrow, keep following us :)
Third day result:
Travelled: 422 km
Petrol used: 70 €
Tip of the day:
Stay relaxed and enjoy every second of your journey no matter the circumstances. Every moment is a treasure, that will stay with you forever.
