Where I stayed
Of course, our travels have been full of endless adventures.
We had great flight and three of us stayed up all night watching movies and laughing.
Got to Paris and took the public transport with our passes to our apt.
Nice apt, half, no one third size of my bedroom in MA-I knew that would be kids just laghed. They kept looking for toilet in the bathroom.
We did all that could be humanly done in Paris: Notre Dame, Louvre two times, Museé d'Orsay, Opèra, Trocadero, Eiffel Tower; Champs E
lysees many times, Rodin Museum, EuroDisney, Lux Gardens, Open Air bus tours, cemetaries; cafes. I could list for hours.
So, a couple fun vingnettes. First of all, Alex became activities director and read the Mètro map and planned our public transport. Kids rose before me, bathed in a tub that they did not fit into, went by themselves across the street and bought pain au chocolats by themselves;
They loved the art, the gardens and we played silly games like count the number of nuns you see, how many different toilets can we use (Thanks Holly for that one), and we ate as many unusual foods that we could find. We also walked abvout 10 miles each day!!!
Most of our best- things were free, walking and getting lost, taking the metro everywhere; the view from Sacre Coeur, using the free outdoor public toilets, and watching the people.
Alex's favorites were Trocadero, and Sacre Couer, Parker loved the Rodin statues, and riding bikes around Lux Gardens (the new ones supplied by the tourist agencies) and the boats there and mine was watching the kids play in those gardens and loving travel and these adventures as much as me!!! We have laughed ourselves silly many times-they are great travellers, do not complain and are having a ball!!
We now arrived in Aubagne after taking fast speed train to this region. Home is yellow and blue and in heart of town. Cafes downstairs. Lovely home and their frends picked us up from the train station. It is a 4 minute walk to train. Very provencial here. Will write another entry again soon.
Have taken 1000 pictures to date, will download a couple later.
