Vive Le France

JustBooks RMV Branch member, Seema Menon was the lucky winner of the ‘Holiday to Paris’.

She visited Paris with her husband, Mahesh Menon, a Merchant Navy officer currently in India on a long sabbatical till March 2012 in connection with their son’s board exams.

The holiday to Paris was arranged through meticulousp planning & execution by Divya, our colleague in Strata Holidays, a division of Strata Retail. Here’s a photo of Mahesh, Seema & Divya, just before the winners left for Paris.

Seema & Mahesh availed a 3N/4D stay in Paris, arranged through Strata Holidays. They used to time to see as much as they could of the beautiful city, in a country that occupies the top slot for the highest visitors in the whole world.

Here are some pictures that Seema shared with us:

Here’s what Seema had to say on her return from Paris:

After the Initial surprise and excitement of having won the Paris trip through JustBooks kind of settled down— next was a complete feeling of awe on reaching” THE CITY OF LIGHTS”—The itenary was very well planned as we had enough time to visit quite a few places—we visited the Louvre—the largest museum in the world—followed by a city tour in the afternoon which covered all the important places around the city and by evening was dropped at Eiffel Tower and the day ended with a spectacular river cruise on the Seine leaving us totally mesmerized.The next day we were driven down to the Versailles palace –an architectural masterpiece— however we were not able to see the palace gardens due to the extreme weather conditions—on our way back from Versailles we stopped by at Notre Dame Cathedral,a gothic masterpiece where the Kings of France came to be crowned. In the evening we were taken for a city tour, the magic of Paris by night in a double decker bus—truly captivating! we were also able to see the Lido show—a delightful musical show! What— really made our trip so wonderful was the detailed planning done by Divya of strata holidays—she planned the trip to the last detail making sure we had a very exciting and memorable trip.Thanks a Ton Divya! Our Sincere thanks to JustBooks for having given us this wonderful opportunity—its been like a dream come True. Really appreciate the efforts put in by one and all at JustBooks & Strata.

Congratulations once again, Seema. Glad to have you on board as a JustBooks member.

For those who are envious of Seema, fret not. Your chance to win yourselves a dream holiday might come sooner than later!
