YR:
I loved the installments of the TR. It was very detailed and you have a great knack for conveying your thoughts. I esp liked the price points thru your TR; It is comments like that (in yours and others) that take me from thinking of my next trip to Paris, to actually planning my next trip to Paris. As it stands, I am shooting for Oct. Again, thanks for your time and dedication to writing all that out!!!

I am very impressed by your perseverance: all the way back to St. Denis the next day to get into the crypt, and four attempts at the Orangerie before you found it open!

St. Denis WAS a long ride on the metro - but something that DH really wanted to see. I didn't mind because we had already done everything on our original agenda. Because we both wanted to see the Monet stuff at the Orangerie it didn't seem like such a hardship to check back again and again and again! It was not all that far from out apartment. 3 times we actually walked there and once we took the metro. I am so happy that I have now been to Paris. It's something I had always dreamed about - and the reality lived up to the dreams.

Great photos,Yellowstone. I'm in Paris at the moment. Flew in a few hours ago from Venice. It's unfortunately cold and rainy. The weather was gorgeous in Italy. Smiles. Happy Travels!

Yellowrose-

I've been following your trip report since you began. I will be in Paris in 2 weeks. I'm printing off your report for reference. You've really captured Paris. I can't wait to get there! Your pictures were wonderful! Thanks so much for sharing!

3sica - So sorry you can't see the photos. I hope you have a great trip. You can do a LOT in 4 days. We did everything on our agenda and a lot more because things are pretty close together and you can walk so many places. We loved it. I hope you all have as nice a time as we did.

Hi Patti & Darryl - Thank you very much for the wonderful photos! Your smile Patti did not reveal one sign that your legs were hurting!
I can't wait until we tread in some of your footsteps!
4 weeks until we fly!

Thanks for all the compliments on the photos. I have so many of them. We are working on labeling the churches since we will so quickly forget! I had such a great time that even though my legs were killing me at times, I didn't really care. I was kind of surprised myself how relaxed both my DH and I looked in the photos. I am a caregiver for my mother and have a 21 year old daughter and 27 year old nephew living with us. Was a great break.
