9 Sep 07 - Depart Perth

Sun 9 Sep - Depart Perth 6am EK425 (Air Emirates) - Arrive Dubai 1.15pm. Depart Dubai 3pm EK075 (Air Emirates) - Arrive Paris 8.20pm

eeekkk!!!! we need to be at the airport about 4am! We had a couple of friends offer to drive us to the airport...until they discovered what time our flight was!

The flight from Perth to Dubai was great. Comfy chairs, great food and lots of inflight entertainment. We both watched 4 movies - but not the same ones so now we'll have to go to different cinemas when we get home.

The flight from Dubai to Paris was not as good. It was a smaller/older plane, but we survived and finally arrived in Paris and found our hotel 27hrs after we left Perth.

Went to a cafe for a night cap and then hit the sack. 11pm Paris time - 5am Perth time.

We are staying at the Citadines Voltaire Republique which is in the 9e and very central. The closest metro station is Parmetier which is less than 1 block from our hotel and only 10 mins from the Seine River.
