Trip Report Three Sisters and their Mother Visit Paris

Jump to last reply

I have been very fortunate over the last few years to have had the opportunity to take many fabulous trips with my favorite travel partner, my sister K. After debating our endless “places to go” list for our next destination, we decided on Paris, a city we had both visited before separately, but both 10+ years ago. We were pleasantly surprised when our sister C asked to come along and get that first stamp in her passport, and soon our Mom signed up for the journey, too.

As happens when we get a new trip on the calendar, I have a tendency to get carried away with planning and researching our destination, and with the abundance of information one can find about Paris, obsessing over the trip pracitically became a full-time job. I started French lessons, spent many evenings watching French films on Netflix, filled my Nook with countless memoirs of ex-pats living in Paris, and of course spent hours and hours reading and re-reading all of the wonderful trip reports and tips here on Fodors.

Since there is sooooooo much info about Paris here provided by people with much more experience and knowledge than I, I’ll keep this brief and hit the highlights. We didn’t do much that was terribly outside of the normal tourist path, but we had a great time on that path and once again I find myself feeling incredibly lucky to have spent a fabulous week in a great city with three of my favorite ladies.
