So we made it to London. But not without some much un-needed drama at the customs station in the Paris train station. The last time we went through customers in Great Britian it was just as ugly. Some dude getting his jollies off ripping Steve and I up one side and down the other – … More Look out London
Yesterday we spent time running around Paris, but that wasn’t the funniest part of our day. because Emily and I packed lightly to avoid checking a bag, yesterday was laundry day. Hand washing in our room. Emily washed her unmentionables in the bathroom and then hung them on the rail spanning the wonderful window above … More Seriously, all this for those!

All I can say is gorgeous! in 1661, Loius XVI started transforming the original palace built by Loius XIII. Talk about elaborate! Every single room had marble covering almost every inch of wall. I’m not talking … More Wonderful stuff today
It really has been a great trip. I am sitting at a little table in the hotel “lobby.” It’s really cozy. Walking the expansive hallways in the Louvre is a once in a lifetime opportunity.

I made her stand on one foot and count to 30-she lasted until 10. Then I deemed her sober enough to walk to a local cafe … More This is why I don’t get asked to chaperone. 😉

Monet’s water color painting Water Lilies is amazing! We also climbed the Arc de Triomphe – and turned our legs into … More Breakfast at Hotel Corail

Just got to our hotel room in Paris. We are both dog-tired., but have to head out for a walk!
First stop Reykjavik, Iceland.
