When Mr. Brown announces that the family will be going to France for their summer holiday, Paddington is excited to take his first real holiday, especially when he is put in charge of the itinerary. He decides that going on holiday is a special occasion so he takes money out of the bank, gets stuck talking to customs over some confusion about a passport, makes a meal of escargot for the family, visits a fortune teller, goes fishing, and joins the Tour de France before returning home to London.
