A Visit To The Eiffel Tower-Day 4

What is the one thing you have to do when you visit Paris?  A visit to the Eiffel Tower of course!  The only decision you have to make is to go to the top or not. I tried to purchase tickets for the summit before I left home the week before.  Mistake!  I took a chance and waited and paid the price by needing to stand in line to purchase those tickets at the site.  In the end it was okay.  Yes, we waited in line about an hour to get our tickets, but once we got them the wait…

When In Paris Do A Wine Tasting

Paris Day 4 After the whirlwind of day 3 and all the things Renee and I did, day 4 was a light day.  Although it didn’t seem  like it at the time.  The only thing I had actually planned ahead of time was our wine tasting lunch at O Chateau.  Located in the 1st Arrondisment just 5 minutes from the Louvre, O Chateau is founded by the famous Oliver Magny.  If you are not familiar with him, just pick up a copy of his books Stuff Parisians Like or the most recent Into Wine.  I have both books…

Paris-Day 3 Part II And Letting Life Get In The Way

I absolutely had the best intentions to write an excerpt on my trip to Paris almost everyday.  It seems like Paris was so long ago already. Life has gotten in the way.  Monday morning I began what was 3 days of training for my USPS Rural Carrier job.  This was held in Milwaukee.  Luckily I was able to crash at my friend Beverly’s place for a couple of nights to save some time on the commute.  On Thursday I reported to our Post Office and delivered a partial route.  I was like a deer in the headlights!  I…

Paris Trip Day 3 Marche Monge, Latin Quarter, and Woody Allen’s Midnight In Paris Church

By day three I think we felt a bit better.  I found each night I would plan the next days events.  I started off with a rough list of things we that were must dos before we left home and after day one it needed to be broke down into days.  So each night I would go over what we did that day and then plan the next day.  The only scheduled thing we had was our wine tasting lunch at O Chateau for Saturday. Today was day 3 which was Friday.  Since I wanted to go to a market…

Paris Days One and Two

Technically I an really not going to count day one as a true Paris day.  Yes we did land, yes we were actually in Paris, but it was a jet lagged, tired induced coma.  By the time we were off the plane, through customs, grabbed our luggage and found our driver to take us to our Paris For Rent apartment on Rue Dragon right in the middle of Paris, we were in a fog. Samantha, our Paris For Rent apartment contact was there to greet us.  We were early and the apartment was not ready yet. No big deal, we…

Departure For Paris Tomorrow!! And 3 Essential Pieces In My Suitcase

I am over the top excited right now!  In under 48 hours I will be in Paris!  Over five years in the planning (or dreaming I should say).  Ever since I took my first trip to Paris over 5 years ago, I have been dreaming about going back.  Not a day has gone by that Paris has been in my thoughts.  How can one place take such a hold on a person? Paris captures the heart of many.  Everyone has their special place that they dream about.  Some dream about the beaches of the Caribbean, or a little tiki hut…

15 Days Paris Here We Come!!

Paris, here we come! Fifteen days till our plane leaves the runway in Green Bay bound for Paris, France!  I am so excited and nervous at the same time.  Researching and planning is in full swing.  It seems like just yesterday that I booked our cute little apartment in the heart of Paris through Paris For Rent.  I cannot say enough good things about our experience so far with this rental agency.  Every question and concern I have had has been answered and then some!  That includes gluten free dining suggestions around the city. Patrick has been a life saver…

Paris With A Sprained Ankle?

How accessible is Paris if you have mobility issues? Traveling to Paris with a sprained ankle? You cannot be serious! Traveling through the airport in a wheelchair or on a cart? Will I be able to ride the Metro? I was looking forward to walking all over Paris and exploring every nook and cranny.  Why in the world did I go ahead and sprain my ankle a week and a half ago? I have a trip to Paris in 4 weeks.  Instead of spending one minute more being angry with myself (did I mention the headache I have from beating…
