Whizzing around Paris in Twiztour cars: #EmbraceParis ice-breaker
|Author Ann Garvin and co-host Norma Thiessen of My Beautiful Paris|
Ladies, start your engines! Or, in this case, turn on your electric, ecologically friendly Twiztour car for one of the most thrilling tours of Paris.
Only hours after meeting each other over a lovely afternoon tea at Le Meurice last Sunday afternoon, taxis whisked the #EmbraceParis ladies to the foot of the Eiffel Tower for our first activity -- a Twiztour GPS guided tour of some of the most impressive monuments of Paris.
Assuring Brooke, who's from Australia, that I had complete confidence in her ability to navigate the streets of Paris on the right side of the road, I squeezed into the back seat of the car with the walkee-talkee. True to their names, "Leader of the Pack" and "Jessica Rabbit" set off at a brisk pace. The four other Twiztour cars made their way across pont de Bir-Hakeim, one of my favorite Parisian bridges, behind them.
We waved at all the people pointing at our cute little cars on the Champs-Élysées, laughed at the group chatter on the walkee-talkees, listened to descriptions of the monuments we passed and grooved to the eclectic selection of music that accompanies the tour. And, of course, we got lost a couple of times along the way. That was all part of the adventure and bonding process!
