It's not too late. I can do it through the consulate in my province. However my dad needs to register with them and prove his French-ness with documentation. I'm not on my computer, but my phone. Smartphones, yeah!

This could very well be the best troll post ever. I have given every benefit of a doubt, but come on.

How did PFD go from having to be budget conscious (fretting about food prices) to being able to bring back scads of souvenirs such as wine, shoes and handbags? It goes on and on.

Either way, this has been a very entertaining and informative thread. And, if PFD is for real, she and her surly cousin need a reality TV show. Maybe throw in the French dad and moneybags uncle for good measure.

I am not a troll. Perhaps I care more about bringing things back than eating at expensive places?
But I'm serioisly not a troll.

Did you write that last post on the air whilst flying to Paris?

kerouac Dec 27th, 2012 08:47 AM

Well, she should be here now. Bienvenue à Paris.

No. I wrote that post at the airport waiting for my plane.
And I am here! Tired and kinda jet lagged but loving ittt!

From the hop across the Atlantic?

I always thought you guys had it pretty easy - so much of the World only a few hours away.

passionfruitdrink37 Dec 27th, 2012 12:18 PM

Yes. It's my first time being in a different time zone. I arrived here midday but it was early morning where I'm from.

bendigo Dec 27th, 2012 12:29 PM

Excellent - you'll be wide awake for the late-night partying (or at least for those lovely walks to see Paris at her sparkling, Christmas-lit best!

Enjoy your time - we've just had 6 days there as part of a wider family trip - and it's on the list to return without kids one day!

Some ideas for New Year's Eve:

Am I the only one who wants to see photos so I can visualize all the characters in this adventure?

Hope you are having a great time PFD - let us know what you are up to, you can't just leave us hanging!

passionfruitdrink37 Dec 28th, 2012 10:59 PM

I dont to spoil anything for the travel blog I'm going to post. I will post some photos but not of us.

Doppio Dec 28th, 2012 11:57 PM

You can always start a new thread (as a trip report) and add to it daily.. That way you won't forget any cool details by the time you get home.

Are you posting a daily blog or doing a trip report here?

This thread is getting so loooooong and unwieldy it might be better to start a new thread w/ your observations and things you are seeing/doing.

Jinky Jan 5th, 2013 11:06 AM

Nothing yet?

Gretchen Jan 5th, 2013 12:27 PM

Nothing since NY'Eve.

Jinky Jan 7th, 2013 10:52 AM

Well, that certainly was quite a wind up! She was to arrive home 5 days ago.

She never even mentioned anything about loving or hating Paris on her other thread

Which I thought was odd. Only that she was "panicking" that she didn't know what to do on NYE and that her cousin was sleeping, and wow, where should she go.. Even though she was already given tons of advice before her trip on this thread and her *other* NYE thread started last month.

Fishy, fishy.

Wind up or not, I'm glad passionfruit started this thread because it inspired me to go to Paris (I've been several times) with my young cousin (her first time) for New Year's. We had a great time and <i>my</i> cousin fell in love with Paris.

Kurosawa Jan 7th, 2013 01:18 PM

Leely, are you planning to do a trip report?
