There and back

My five-day trip to Paris was rich in memories, exciting new experiences, and thoughts of what used to be... what is...and what could have been...

It will certainly provide me with plenty of blogging material to take you away from the French countryside for a while.

For now, though, it's time to catch up with everything and face up to a number of things. But I'll post more as soon as I can!

In the meantime, here's proof that my trip took place, and that I am overcoming my acrophobia.

I believe you and congrats with overcoming your acrophobia :-)

Looking forward to more reports from this beautiful city!

I can't wait to hear about it! I hear you about catching up. I plan to do one big post this week and then I need to keep it minimal for a while until my trade show in May is over!

Oh La Tour Eiffel.... Mon coeur désire Paris!

What a great aspect! I also experience acrophobia, so this is a great inspiration for me. I'm looking forward to seeing more of your visit.

Oh, I've been waiting for you to return, Betty! We may not be going to Paris for April, but we have started to plan our September trip, which is a shortie.

Welcome back! I look forward to your Paris posts.

Walt, I'm sure the real thing doesn't hold a candle to your collection!

I'm so glad that Paris has you feeling awakened and that you were willing to overcome your acrophobia! Isn't the view amazing from up there? Looking forward to more stories!

We could have passed each other without knowing it :)

What a great photo ... and on getting over your fear ... if you've lived in France for 17 years ... that's a lot of bravery already.

Betty C. said...

Lavender Honey -- I never quite looked at it that way, but maybe you're right!

I've also gotten over my fear of flying. That's a great accomplishment too -- and a very handy one since I got back to the States every summer!

So glad to find your blog! It helps with the homesickness for my French life!
Beautiful photos!
