Breakfast at Lunchtime

We all couldn’t resist one last english breakfast. Today’s came from Regency Café and was excellent.

My breakfast; look at that fried tomato!

I made some slight modifications to the food before I ate it. Gotta eat everything with Brown Sauce.

Happy breakfast

I finished my meal before Garrett, and got a shot of him eating some egg on his toast:

And I took some selfies while he ate (poor guy).

Man that egg looks good

When breakfast was over we walked around for a while trying to find a nice place to sit (we had our bags with us). We ended up going to a very casual pub (had to go to one last pub before we left) where we were able to read our books and relax a little bit. The day was spent wandering around close to King’s Cross so that we didn’t need to go far to get to the Eurostar.


Dinner at Dishoom

Dinner was really really good. I didn’t get any shots of the food, but I will definitely go back here when I next visit London. Here’s a picture of fancy drinks that Vikram and I ordered:

Dessert was particularly entertaining for Vikram and me:

Eurostar to Paris

We left for Paris on the Eurostar after dinner. Getting through security was extremely easy.

Here’s some pictures of the train and station as we approached the train and found our seats:

While waiting to depart we took some quick selfies:

The mannequin from yesterday’s post should take note:

By now I’m very comfortable taking photos that only tourists take. Here’s some panoramas of inside the train:

After about 30 minutes, we were in France!

We arrived in Paris at about 11 PM. This lady had a lot of luggage:

We took a cab to our Airbnb and didn’t do much else this evening. Looking forward to wandering around the city tomorrow!
