Ah, the sales....have never hit Paris during that time frame. Not sure I would plan my vacation around the sales dates as awesome as it sounds.

I love Paris but if we go it will likely be secondary to London. My next two places that I would really love to see from Paris, are Giverny and Vaux Le Vicomte. I think there would have to be something pulling me to Paris in January or July, in addition to the sales. That could happen but not sure what that would be right now.

Oh, yeah - one last thing I meant to include at some point...very minor at this point but I like it. One of the managers at Le Sirenuse responds to comments, good and bad, on Trip Advisor. I think it's great that they monitor feedback on their hotel. It won't fix a bad experience but I appreciate that they read and respond. I recognize that it is good PR for them but many hotels do not respond or only respond to the positive reviews. Just another thing we liked, even after we left!

I am awaiting delivery of our ceramics from Conca dei Marini, which should arrive any day. The wine arrived very quickly and we look forward to breaking into it. I know unpacking the dishes we ordered will be a little bit like Christmas!

denisea------I thought of you today. I started "Foreign Affairs" by Stuart Woods, a Stone Barrington novel. Always fun.
Anyway, a couple of pages in NYC----oooops! New York City! Then moves to Rome and Le Sirenuse in Positano. That Stone Barrington knows how to live....as do you.

I do so enjoy yout trip reports----but please don't write one on Newark!!!!

A Stone Barrington book at Le Sienuse??? I read a Stuart Woods book about twice a year....always great fun and they move fast! Gotta get that on my Kindle!

Being at the Newark airport again reminds me of why I hate that airport and have avoided it for the past 15 years. One if the worst with the rudest TSA staff.

Nice tip TPAYT!

Actually Stone is only in Positano for a few pages, but add Rome, Paris, etc. and it's a fast, fun read.

Newark airport-----you got it right----the rudest TSA staff in the country.
