Review
Our only destination was Paris. The 10 days were taken up with family support and the funeral arrangements. The weather was uniformly cold: minus 4 degrees C on arrival with smog and reaching a maximum of 13 degrees. There's not a lot to be said for Paris in mid-winter, especially if you have just left the NQ tropics.

Review
Both Paris and London have lost their appeal and charm for me over the last 4 years. The mass tourism of this age has made them both crowded and frantic in so many ways. Visiting the Louvre is now like entering a war zone, and nothing to do with art anymore. At the risk of sounding racist ( I'm not , as it happens) , the crowds of some Asian races who simply want to take selfies in front of artworks, views or monuments, spoil the experience for everyone.
However the greater part of my trip was in Normandy, Brittany and the Channel Islands. Generally speaking they were not overwhelmed with tourist hoards. Even Monet's garden, although busy, was not as crowded as a recent blog ( 10 Things Not to Do in France) had suggested. Both there and at Bayeux the majority of other tourists appeared to be French.
