The French countryside looked like a beautiful patchwork quilt in shades of green and brown - a beautiful summer day

We wasted no time picking up our luggage and transferring to Terminal 4 at Heathrow where we managed to get a flight immediately on Air France.
We went from 1st class on Qantas to tiny seats in the back row on a small twin prop Air France plane.
This was a no frills thrills flight. A long time since I’ve flown in a plane with a prop.
The clouds cleared as we flew across the Channel and over France. So beautiful! The fields below us looked like a geometric patchwork quilt in shades of green and brown.
I’m writing this from a train as we head towards the city from Charles de Gaulle Airport. One taxi ride to go. It’s been 32 hours since we left home with about an hour to go. I feel remarkably good considering the length of time and change in time zone.
The temperature is in the mid 20s – lovely summer’s day in Paris.
