Paris 2013: Another Adventure Begins…

All our bags are packed…

Yes!  My DH and I are going to Paris!   We leave tomorrow — we are very excited about that!

Last summer we only spent 8 days in Paris.  This time, we are spending 33 days there.   We rented an apartment.   The city should be quiet — all that heat, you know!

Why 33 days?    Well, it is all we could manage this year.   You see, my DH and I did not plan our summer well.   First, I took a  Digital Photography class (five weeks).  Second, we had some out-of-town visitors that needed entertaining (two weeks).  Third, I start classes again in September.  But most importantly, we had to consider our wonderful dog, Zoey.  She is nearly a year old and just too darn cute to leave in a kennel.   So, we spent a couple of months interviewing other Aussie owners as potential dog-sitters.   We wanted someone who would care and love her like we do — you know, take her out for walks, take her to the dog park, rub her belly, throw a ball, talk baby-talk to her, and play tug-of-war on a regular basis.   As luck would have it, we found a nice young couple with a Miniature Aussie named Cody.    For the last couple of months, we have had the pleasure of exchanging puppy-sitting services with them.   In the end, we feel confident that Zoey will be happy and safe spending the next few weeks at Cody’s house.

Will I blog about our time in Paris?   You bet!   We learned from our European trip last summer so this time we are taking two laptops so that my DH gets a fighting chance in using some technology.   I also learned that daily entries are just too stressful and this trip is so not about stress!   My goal is to post one entry a week.

So what the heck do we plan to do in 33 days?   Our plans are sketchy.  Off the top of my head, I think we will spend a few days at the Louvre, have a few picnics in the park, visit some of the smaller towns surrounding Paris, and eat.   But mostly, we plan to enjoy Paris!
