But today I’m flying to Paris with my grandson (age 14), granddaughter (11) and their mother, my daughter . A chance of a lifetime, as the expression goes. We’ve rented an apartment for the week on the Ile de la Cite right behind Notre Dame Cathedral . We have Paris passes that get us into everything except the Eiffel Tower, but we’ll be sure to climb to the top anyway. We plan to walk the Champs Elysees, eat crepes in Luxembourg Gardens, wander the Louvre, and take a train to Versailles. That’s on our itinerary so far, but we’re open to adventure.
As I said, I won’t be living in silence, solitude or simplicity, but who would want to when in Paris with people you love and who are piles of fun? I’ll be blogging from Paris, but not in French.
