Flamenco Dinner Show-Sevilla

I wasn’t able to write about the Flamenco show the other night as the wi fi wasn’t working too well and we were tired when we got back.

We took the coach to the restaurant and were seated in the best section of the restaurant. We were at the back but were raised a small tier higher than the front section. It seems moments after they have taken your drink order, the lights go down, the stage lights up and the show begins.

The rhythm of the hand clapping out the tempo and the sound of the feet on the stage only complements the speed of the dancers feet and the colours of the costumes have to be seen and heard in the real, before understanding this dance and appreciating the strength and stamina this takes.

One male soloist must have danced a full 8 minutes at a speed you didn’t think could be accomplished and then a female dancer does the same thing.

There are many dancers and it ends far too soon. Oh yeah, the dinner was good as well but we were eating by candlelight. Then, because we were with Insight, we went down and had pictures taken with the dancers.

A dream come true

Paris – Day 1

Well it has been a very long drive to Paris. The scenery really changes from one country to another. Paris is quite lovely and we are staying in The Hyatt Regency Etoile. Stunning! We  arrived about 4ish p.m. and after waiting for our luggage, we prepare to leave on the bus for a scenic drive before getting off at our restaurant.

This was our last dinner together and it was one of the best: started with a Kir (my favourite) then a salad, Beef Bourguignon and finished with the best Crème Brulee I have ever had. Of course, wine was included.

We left on the bus for the hotel, while others went on a cruise down the Seine. The three of us had done this before and decided an evening at rest was best.

Tomorrow we leave at 8:15 a.m. to go UP the Eiffel Tower (OMG), the Louvre, and the Notre Dame Cathedral and then off to the Latin Quarter. This, my friends, will be the  end of our tour with Insight.

I have something to say here….we started out at strangers (all 39 of us) and have ended up as friends…some lifelong – others maybe not so long, but nonetheless, we have been tied together seeing things we probably never thought we would see, visit or travel to.

Our leader and babysitter Bob has been caring, attentive, observant and helping beyond what you would think any guide would or could or even should do for his charges. For this, I say thank you.

For our driver, Franco – you have been the best driver, friendly yet professional, able to tease and take a joke as well as sing a beautiful song as we spent our last night in Italy. For this, we say thank you.

To Insight Tours, thank you for taking the time to plan these trips, pick the best hotels and restaurants, side trips and inclusive outings – thank you. Will we travel some more? Hopefully. Will we travel with Insight? Absolutely..

Well worth the dollars spent – value given and then some.
