Trip Report Paris Here We Come

Jump to last reply

My DH and I leave Sunday night for two weeks in Paris and a week in Istanbul. We usually stay longer in Paris so I'm feeling a little sorry for myself, but then perk up. I am in my usual "can't sleep at night so much to do how will I finish" mode but am assuming all will work out. The dogs get groomed Thursday and then off to their cousins, DH and I get groomed tomorrow, well, haircuts at least. The suitcases are nearly packed. Finally found the navigo cards and Louvre membership cards.

The week in Istanbul has friends and family concerned but I'm assuming we'll be fine. In Paris in the past I veered toward demonstrations and protests as a point of interest but am determined to be more sensible this trip.

At the end of the last trip in November I fell while gawking at a ceiling in a passage and hurt my elbow. Had an interesting and pleasant encounter with medical folks in Paris but am well and determined to be more careful. (Stand still before you look up).

This trip I'm hoping to write a bit every couple of days to help my friends and family understand why we keep coming back. Must go now and find those walks I printed out last year but have lost, and the scarves, and the tiny flashlight, etc.
