The leg room was not brilliant and I wondered if maybe they packed in a few more seats on this very short flight seeing as it was sold at a bargain price?!!I only saw Economy and First Class - Business was upstairs. A nice touch from Air France was a flight certificate handed out to all passengers.
Once in Paris I made a mad dash to Hermès FSH before it closed on Saturday and I did find a couple of things - the Hermès horseman was flying 2 yellow "H Comme Histoires" scarves.
In the evening we went to Montmartre to our favourite little restaurant and I had my beloved onion soup!
On Sunday the shops in Paris are all shut so we finally made it to the Musee d'Orsay. I was blown away with the beauty of the Impressionist paintings in the museum. Sadly the museum is undergoing renovation so not all the paintings are on display, but what we did see were amazing - beautiful Renoirs, Monets, Van Gogh, Manet, Pissaro, Degas etc - I can highly recommend a visit!! I discovered an artist I had never heard of before - Jean Béraud and I loved his "Une Soiree" painting - I managed to find photo of it and here it is:-

After the museum we had lunch and a rest and then went to a cake shop and bought some cakes which were delicicous!
On Monday it was a very early start for the flight back to the UK but the airport has a Hermès;-) and I got lucky again - and no that is not my purchases being loaded into the hold LOL!
Whilst waiting for our connecting flight home we stopped by Gordon Ramsay's "Plane Food" restaurant at Heathrow for lunch - we had a lovely pea, broad bean and Dolcelatto risotto - yummy!
Please look out for my next blog when I shall post pics of the Hermès goodies!!
