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…

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…

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…

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…

Reading Now-The Light Of Paris

I needed a break from all the things I have been reading lately. I’m about “how to’d” out. Although I’ve been enhancing my blogging, Pinterest, Social Media, and Paris travel skills, it is time for some daily fiction. I need to escape away from reality for awhile and have a little fun.  So yesterday I took a much needed trip to the library to search the…

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…

Planning For Paris-Planning An Itinerary

My trip to Paris is less than a month and a half away and I have been busy making out a must see/do list. Studying maps, metro lines, checking out cafes near our rented apartment, and getting a packing list together. I always say half the fun of going on a trip is the planning. I’m at my happiest when I have a table full of maps and guides laid out in…

Budgeting For Travel Is Possible-Even You Can Make It Happen

How many times has fear held you back from doing something you really want to do? Are you over 40 and realize that you want to take a vacation in a far off land (or maybe just the next state) and you don’t know how to go about it?    Fear can paralyze us into not living our dream lives.  Of course not everyone can act on every little whim we have, like quitting…

Book Review-Meet Me In Paris by Juliette Sobanet

Since I can never get enough of reading about my favorite city either in fiction or non-fiction form, I decided to dig into Juliette Sobanet’s telling memoir Meet Me In Paris.  I have read a few of her books before-including Sleeping With Paris, Honeymoon In Paris, and Kissed In Paris and loved all of them.  Juliette typically writes romance novels most set in the city of light which is why I…

Book Review-I Loved You In Paris by Juliette Sobanet

  A few days ago I finished reading Meet Me In Paris by Juliette Sobanet and was blown away at this candid memoir from this romance writer about her divorce and her all consuming affair with a married man. You can read my review of that book here.  In that book she shared a handful of poems she wrote to describe the feelings and thoughts she had during this painful period of her life. I…

Paris-5 Years Since My First Trip To The City Of Light

Tomorrow is April 7, 2016 which means 5 years ago i got in a plane in Green Bay, Wisconsin to embark on my first trip to Paris. Thinking about it now, it seems a like a long time ago.  Much has happened in the 5 years since that trip.  I took a management position at my company, my daughter has gone from being a shy 8th grader into a senior in high school that has…
