12 days and I'm off to Paris!

I'm heading to Paris in 12 days! The last time I was in Paris was 5 years ago, so I'm ready for my Paris "fix." I'll be spending 9 nights in a small studio apartment in the heart of the Marais, which I understand is in a great location (on rue Vieille du Temple).

I've invited my friend Louisa to join me. She'll arrive 2 days before me and will meet me at my apartment the day I arrive. We'll have 9 days together before she flys home and I'll have 2 more days before I fly home.

We're planning to go on 3 day trips (Dijon, St. Germain-en-Laye, and Amiens). I even bought our train tickets on line, which was very easy to do. The rest of our time will be spent exploring (together and separate) Paris. I hope to see a lot of the markets in Paris, wander the various neighborhoods, and visit a few museums. Maybe a night Seine cruise too! Of course, we're both looking forward to having some wonderful meals in Paris.

I hope that I'll be able to "blog" often while I'm in Paris, so stay tuned!

Hi Moncia,

looking forward to your Paris postings! If you haven't already done this one one of your trips before, we can recommend to take the elevator to the top of the Montparnasse Tower in late evening (200 meters high). You'll have a 360 degree night view at Paris and at 10 pm the Eiffel tower is going to be illuminated.

Gute Reise!
