Aaaah Paris

Bonjour mes Amis Nous somme a Paris! Il fait tres chaud☀️? Hier nous sommes alles a la Tower de Eiffel. Ok that's all I got. The nice thing is we have AC in our room for the first time the whole trip. Now that's something to be thankful for. The last time we were here...

Tour De Eiffel

Fêtes Nationales (Bastille Day)

Ron’s Trip Notes

So after much anticipation, months of preparation and packing/repacking/repacking again, buying different stuff and repacking again, we are on our way.  The morning we left we gave ourselves plenty of time to make the flight.  Time enough to handle highway detours and...
