Trip Report Merry Christmas and Bonjour from Paris 2008!

Jump to last reply

The AF flight from Boston to Paris was l-o-n-g but otherwise uneventful. It was a much different story for our return but that will come later...
We had booked online and were met by our driver from shuttle-inter.com (55 euros one way.) He was holding a sign with our name on it outside the exit right after you claim your luggage. The service was efficient and easy for two weary first time visitors.
As we drove into the city in the predawn light of Christmas morning we saw Notre Dame Cathedral off in the distance. Now we knew we were in Paris!
We arrived to our Paris apartment on 56 rue Bonaparte, Arrondissement 6 in St-Germain des Pres (www.parisianstay.com or http://www.vrbo.com/198104) that was just like the online pictures that I had looked at almost daily till we got there. We had a laptop provided during our stay with a French keyboard. It was hard to find punctuation and there was no qwerty setup! After our emails were sent to our family to tell them we had arrived we wanted to nap. We decided to fight the jetlag instead by going out to explore the city.
