Default Tour Descartes/Tour IBM, France - October 2011 - 26-10-2011, 18:12


Err yeah, we hired a van with the plan of driving to Paris for some sort of adventure. No explores were planned but with three sets of eyes in the skies, something was going to happen.



This little peach is an office skyscraper based in the La Défense business district situated west of Paris. It was built in 1988, stands at 430ft spread over 40 floors and was used as the French headquarters for IBM until 2010.






















We were basically kipping in the van so we headed over to Brussels for the Palais de Justice one night, headed back to France and got caught up in some train yards and other business on the way home. Snaps;



































Big thanks to Rookie & OBO, Thanks for looking!

Yeah. We'd never been to Paris never mind France or Belgium so it was a dip into Euro exploring for us. I'll soon be back for them!
