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…

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 new book shelves for some escape route.  It didn’t take me long to find it. The Light Of Paris by Eleanor…

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…

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 front of me. Plus, since I sprained my ankle late last week and am somewhat immobile, it’s a perfect time to really dig…

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 a less than fulfilling job when we have a family to support, but with careful planning we can take steps to make our dreams into…

Paris In Pictures

I am so excited for my trip back to Paris in September. I intend to take a ton of pictures and look for interesting places to write about and share with everyone! This time I will be staying in an apartment through Paris For Rent in the 6th. Follow along on all my social media channels to see Paris through my eyes! These were all taken on my last trip…

Nighttime View From The Top Of The Eiffel Tower

  If you can go to the top of the Eiffel Tower at night do it!  I know some people say that the view from the second level is the best, but this just took my breath away!  In September I will be back to see you La Tour Eiffel…
