Dateline Late September/Early October 2007 Location(s) United Kingdom – London & Brighton (England) / Swansea (Wales) France – Paris Now with added France! Yes, that’s right readers, I added a new country to my repertoire on my 2007 trip! This trip also featured the introduction of a couple of new traveling companions (at least for […]

I’m back in Paris! Only very briefly though, so I’m writing this post from yet another plane. I just had an uneventful yet comfortable 10-hour flight from Bangalore, marred only by the fact that the plane sat on the ground for 30 minutes after we landed because another plane was at our gate. Of course, […]

I shouldn’t be able to write this post right now, but my flight to Bangalore is now approaching a two-hour delay, so why not update the blog? 🙂 On the positive side, the flight to Paris was just fine, though I didn’t really sleep much. I was laying down for a good 3-4 hours, but […]

Our bags are packed and checked in and we’re sitting at our gate at Charles de Gaulle airport in Paris. I guess that means we’re flying to Madrid! Seems like we’re leaving at just the right time – it’s raining now! The weather for Madrid looks really good though, so we’re definitely looking forward to […]

Wow, is it really time to leave Paris already?? It can’t be! It’s a little weird – as I was getting things cleaned up around our apartment and getting stuff packed up, I got that end-of-vacation feeling. But then I realized that we have three more cities to see and I felt a lot better. […]

I’m happy to report that we were able to meet up with our friend last night! Admittedly, we got a little lost when we got off the Metro to walk to his hotel, but we made it in the end. 🙂 There’s just something really cool about being able to meet up with friends from […]

We had a great time on our picnic! The weather was great (as was the company!) and it was so amazing to be just sitting on the Champ de Mars while enjoying bread and cheese with the Eiffel Tower above us. It was still pretty light when we got there, but as it got darker […]

What a good day we’ve had so far! The weather has been absolutely perfect – sunny, temperatures in the high 60s/low 70s, and just a bit of a breeze. Perfect for walking around Versailles! That’s really been the only thing we’ve done today, actually. And that’s fine by me. 🙂 We were hoping to start […]

It’s nearly 11:30p on Friday night here, which can only mean one thing – time to write another blog! Today felt like a pretty busy day because we saw and did quite a few things. As I mentioned in my post earlier today, the weather was a bit iffy this morning, but after getting sprinkled […]

We’re getting ready to head out shortly, but the weather has unfortunately not been cooperating (in some ways) this morning. Although the sun is hidden and the temperature is lower (a welcome change from the last two days!), it’s also been thundering and rainy off and on. It’s a gentle kind of thunder and rain […]
