Paris 2005

One of my favorite life experiences...being present for Bastille Day in Paris. We spent the evening elbow to elbow with Parisians on a bridge approximately a mile away from the Eiffel Tower. It was amazing, breathtaking, spectacular, and very authentic. The last part of the sentence is the most important to me. Whenever we travel, the last thing I want is to feel like a tourist...even when it's painfully obvious that I am one!

It's also important to note that my husband is a must have whenever I travel. He speaks French which has been VERY helpful at times, he never gets lost, and he manages to take us off the beaten path in any city / country we have visited to date.

More reminiscing tomorrow!


  1. I have a cousin living in Paris right now...Could Pete be my tour guide if I go?

    1. As long as you feed him plenty of croissants and chocolate! And are willing to detour to the Eiffel Tower at least once a day. :)
