so OMG and ooh-la-la! I just booked a small apartment in Paris for a week - from May 23 through May 30!!! I thought I was probably going to die before I got something - anything - settled about my trip. But this will give me something to work around and I will probably still get frazzled now and then but I don't think as badly.
Like I said in an earlier post, Heather will arrive in Paris on 5/17 (Thursday) and probably leave on Monday. But I think wherever we stay (and that will probably be her choice), we'll get the room until the 23rd so I don't have to find another place to stay for a couple of nights.
I have to decide now should I get to France before she arrives (a week or two) or should I get there at the same time and then add on another week or so of travel after May 30? Ah, travel plans - how they absorb one...
No pictures - just had to share the news. :)

- When I started my retirement travels - the first of which was my solo overseas trip to Italy in 2009 - I wanted a way to share it with family and friends as it happened. Hence, "My Travel Journal". However I realized I wouldn't always be on a trip and wondered what to do with the blog in between times. My daughter pointed out, wisely, that travels can also include trips to the kitchen to try a new recipe, trips to visit family, trips to my neighborhood Starbucks, or a fun day trip with a friend. You're welcome to join me on any of these journeys!
P.S. I've set up separate pages for each of my major trips (see tabs above).
I recently added an "Italian Word a Day" thingie which shows up at the bottom of every page. You see the word and can click to hear it pronounced. I've been enjoying it and I think my accent is improving as time goes by.
