Leaving on a Jet Plane

*Now I can't get that stupid song out of my head.*

Anyway, we're off to France tomorrow! We haven't been to Europe for two years, so we're very excited. Larry's been working like a dog, so he's really looking forward to relaxing with good wine and food in Alsace. He's also thrilled because we'll be in Paris for the finish of the Tour de France.

In Alsace we're staying here: http://www.holiday-rentals.co.uk/p517489 Planning on doing lots of hiking, enjoying the food and wine (hopefully hiking off some calories), poking around the villages and wineries, a trip into Strasbourg.

Then we'll be in Paris for a few days, staying at a favorite apartment in the 14th. http://www.vrbo.com/127079
In Paris we're planning on doing plenty of aimless wandering, seeing the Tour whiz by, going to the Albert Kahn museum and gardens, eating at some favorite restaurants and new ones, exploring the Canal St martin area, visiting the Musée Jacquemart-André, the photography Museum, and a Ronis exhibit. Oooh, and it's Soldes week!

I'm using my new Touch to carry much of the trip info--I've loaded in lots of documents, off-line maps, Zagat Paris, Rough Guide Paris, and lots of lists and portions of my GoogleMaps. We'll have the laptop, so I'll hopefully be blogging as we go.

Safe travels and have a wonderful time!

Bon voyage! I loved Alsace, although it's been more than 20 years since we were there.

There ought to be a law against mentioning that song. Now it's stuck in MY head!

Have a wonderful trip! I will be looking forward to hearing about Alsace, an area I would like to visit someday.

I get that stupid song stuck in my head every time I am set to leave on a trip. :)

I loved having my iPod Touch with my on my last trip to Italy. It was so helpful. You can even take screenshots of maps if you look things up with wifi access before going out. You just hold down both buttons (the top one and the round one).

Have a fantastic time! I am looking forward to reading all about your fun adventure. Enjoy!!

Have a wonderful trip. I'm looking forward to reading about your time and adventures. Both areas sound great. Enjoy!

Tourmama:

Hope your wanderings through Paris give us some new places to visit in September. Looking forward to reading about your experiences.
