Quite frankly, I'd take Paris in any season...well maybe not in the summer...but Spring?
Oh my yes!
Parisians DO NOT let rain interfere with their daily lives. In fact, I think I counted 22 umbrellas being used in the 4 days we were there! Ok, I didn't REALLY count the umbrellas, but you get the idea that rain is a non issue. If it's a non-issue for the folks in Paris, well, then...when in Rome... Oh...wait...When in Paris...do as the Parisans.
I'm still on a Paris cloud.
We took an early flt. to Seattle Dec. 30th. The flight to Paris didn't leave until 5 that night so we rented a car and drove here:
Seriously cool place...
...and the food?
|Ate the best fresh, grilled salmon right here!|
I actually can't wait to go back and visit Seattle.
Fast forward to Paris...
New Years Eve...
Paris is divided into 5 zones for use in pricing public transportation passes-
Bought a 5 day unlimited pass for all 5 zones.
Euros well spent.
|Metro de Paris|
While in Paris, you need two maps:
One for the Metro lines...
(which maps are everywhere)
...and a street map of the city.
DO NOT and I repeat...DO NOT walk around the city without this one!
If you saw all the side streets that aren't printed on the map~you'll totally get why you need it!
We stayed in the Latin Quarters on Rue Du R. Jean Colly
When I think of Paris...
...THIS is what I think of.
Snapped this with my i-phone coming up the Metro stairs & getting my first look at the city.
If I had 1000 pictures of the Eiffel Tower...
...it wouldn't be enough.
Frankie and I always get into this
dispute, discussion when we travel that I never like to have my photo taken. When we're dead and gone (in 100 years from now) we'll have these photos of the amazing places we've visited, but no proof that we were actually there.
Proof I was in Paris!
Oh and by the way...Paris water is NOT condusive for good hair days...
Update on Jamie:
She was sent to L&D yesterday to be monitored. She's 80% effaced & 3.5 cm dilated but was sent home. I'm packed and ready to go in a moments notice!
Happy (Paris dreaming) snapping!
