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!

Great post Mary Kay, thank you so much. Makes me smile just thinking back to how much fun this was. And, shhh, we won't tell anyone about that red light you and Brooke might have *jumped*! :)ReplyDelete
Red light? What red light?!? ;) Thanks for all of the work that you and Norma put into #EmbraceParis. It was an incredible success from start to finish!Delete
These look like fun!ReplyDelete
They were lots of fun, Bridget! Nothing produces an adrenaline rush like whizzing down the Champs Élysées -- and partially around the Arc de Triomphe, even though that wasn't exactly on the GPS guided route. Oops! Did I mention that there was an Aussie at the wheel of our car?!? ;)Delete
Where's a picture of MK from "Out and About in Paris"ReplyDelete
I just "stole" a pic from Norma, one of the #EmbraceParis co-hosts, and will post it on Facebook.Delete
And you lived to tell the tale....Or did you? Where's the photo of MK?ReplyDelete
Yes, I'm alive. My stomach hurt afterwards but that was from laughing so much! Now that you're on FB, I'll post a photo there.Delete
Very strange. I left a comment yesterday that disappeared! I can only assume that you checked first that Brooke had already driven on the right ... Sounds like fun. I'll be including it in my next Blogger Round-Up.ReplyDelete
From what I gathered, Brooke drives more often in Paris than I do. She had no problem staying on the right ... stopping at red lights was another matter! ;) Thanks for including this post in your Blogger Round-Up, Rosemary. I'll check if your other comment ended up with the spam comments. Sorry about that.Delete
You're welcome, Mary Kay. Maybe I didn't complete the process correctly. Don't worry.Delete
Dear Mary Kay, Thank you very much for this nice article! Our team was really happy to welcome you aboard our electric cars! Could you please help us on TripAdvisor, writing a review (even few words!). Thanks again, and...see you next Year for the next #EmbraceParis?!ReplyDelete

Hi Laurent, You've got a good team - they did a great job helping one of the women figure out how to start her car via a telephone call when we were at the Eiffel Tower. All of the ladies had a lot of fun, as I'm sure that you saw on Twitter and Facebook.Delete
