Arras to Paris

Notre Dame Cathedral

We crossed over to France from Dover and watched as the famous coastline disappeared. Ready for our hitchhiking odyssey, to Athens, Greece, the intuitive side of my personality kicks in quickly once I start diving into cars which are driven by men. Not one woman stopped to give us a lift.

France was easy and our first night passed at a youth hostel in Arras where we met European kids traveling our same route, except on a EuroRail Pass. When we told them our plans to hitch, they thought we were crazy. It's so far! No, coming from a country like Canada, it seemed a mere day away.
So much to see and do in Paris. The Louvre was amazing and well worth a tour.
