Les Rosies en France

Bonjour!

We have arrived in France! Our flights to Paris largely went to plan - we had two stops of about 3 hours each at Sydney and Abu Dhabi. There isn't a lot to say about the long haul travel process except that it has to be endured and we did it. Doug, Tom and I are travelling on this leg of our trip with a great (very well behaved so far) bunch of students from Doug's college, plus two French teachers and another parent, a party of 16 in total. I am writing this from Roissy-en-France, which is a very old village that has been taken over as the airport hotel hub but somehow still manages to look quaint. Great to check in so close to the airport and that hot shower was just the best!
We walked up to the village for dinner (really good pizza!) and that was our first evening in France. Apart from a very distant sighting of the Eiffel Tower, Paris will have to wait a couple more days as we put our tired bodies to bed and set off tomorrow for Normandy. In transit

Final countdown to departure

5 days to go!

The Rosie family is off to Wales for the wedding of Jeff and Zara on 23 April 2016.
On the first leg of our journey we are joining the Edgewater College French trip to Normandy and Paris. We then take the Eurostar to London and drive to Wales where the clan will gather for the wedding. We return to London and spend our last week in the Devon area. Members of our family are joining us on different parts of the trip. In all there are 11 of us going to the wedding from NZ. Right now we are doing all the last minute organising, packing, etc that is part and parcel of all such adventures.
