Whoa, photos! Photos from our two-days in Paris last fall are here for your viewing pleasure. Being just about the only non-stop international flight one can get out of CVG anymore, Paris was the first stop on our trip. And, being a holiday weekend, there were lots of familiar faces on the flight (because who doesn’t want to peep on what your work acquaintances selected for their in-flight movie and to show off your best I woke up like this hairdo after an overnight flight?). Paris was also the first time we’d used AirBnB – and it was a huge success! The apartment was lovely, off the beaten path, and our host left us a list of hard to find rooftop bars where we stood out like the tourists we were (hard not to do in rain jackets). Our trip was after the first train attacks but the mood was still pretty easygoing at that point over there. We didn’t feel
any much Parisian snootiness and managed to avoid the con artists at all of the big sites, and we didn’t even get pickpocketed! One of my irrational fears, naturally.
I fell in love with Europe’s doors, and this is one from the neighborhood of our AirBnB (and some other photos of the neighborhood):

^Not really sure what was going on here, but in pidgin French he understood they wanted a photo. Bachelorette party, perhaps? They were rocking 80’s fabulous costumes.
I was very happy with my breakfast options! I couldn’t order the quiche, though, because I didn’t know how to ask for a fork…this place was not used to dealing with
tourists silly Americans.
And then we were off to Zurich!
