Eve of Departure

A year in the planning...

sunny 16 °C

Finally getting excited for our trip - and we leave tomorrow! Alena & I have been planning this mother-daughter trip for a year now. We're going to fly into Paris then (hopefully) travel South to the Bordeaux region where we'll spend 3 nights in Saint Emilion. After 1 night in the city of Bordeaux, we'll head back to Paris for 4 1/2 days.
On my wish list for this trip:

  • wine!
  • foie gras
  • fresh market foods
  • cabaret show at Moulin Rouge
  • Notre Dame Cathedral
  • a museum or 2
  • shopping
  • caramels, macarons & chocolates
  • possibly some more wine!

We're really hoping for smooth travels. We're booked but there are major transportation strikes happening in France right now - labour unrest is timed to coincide with Euro Cup soccer. ARRRGGGHH. I hope that Tuesday morning works out OK for us. Nevertheless, we'll be on vacation (we're both due!!) and we'll be in FRANCE!!!

a bientôt!
MA & Alena
