My husband told me a few weeks ago that my 50th birthday present was going to be a trip to Paris!
I'm so excited!!
I've always wanted to go to Paris. The idea of drinking coffee and nibbling on croissants in an open-air cafe, walking the cobblestone streets, perusing the famous Paris Flea Market, the many museums, the Seine, the Eiffel Tower - all of it just sounds so lovely and romantic. So Spouse contacted the travel agent who helped him plan my 40th birthday trip to Las Vegas and she helped him put together this trip.
excellent overview of the city and help us decide where we want to spend more time.
On my actual birthday, Sat Dec 7, we are going on a Seine river cruise and also having dinner at one of the Eiffel Tower restaurants.
Sun Dec 8 is our last full day. I know there are loads of amazing museums but to be perfectly honest, a little of that goes a long way for me. So while we may spend a few hours doing that, I want to have lots of time to see Paris. Of course we've looked at some websites, but if you've been to Paris, I'd love to know your favorite places, or places you think would be of interest to me, someone who has never been there before. We leave in the morning on Mon Dec 9 and because of the time difference arrive back at Dulles in the early afternoon, giving us plenty of time to drive back to DE.
I've already ordered and received my laminated, foldable Paris map, downloaded a translator app on my iPhone, and set up a special plan with my carrier to be able to use my iPhone in Paris.
Spouse has decided his "color story" for the trip is going to be black, grey, and beige. LOL!! I have no idea what clothes I'll be taking but I DO know that I will be wearing comfortable walking shoes. And I'm bringing scarves, because it just seems like one should be wearing a scarf in Paris.
This is going to be AMAZING!!!
