« Live from CDG | Main | Paris in 45 days! »

Back to reality

Well, we are back home, safe and sound, from one of the most wonderful trips we have ever had the privilege to enjoy. We were so happy to see our little Sebastian yesterday, we missed him so much.

We were very tired last night from our travel day and were in bed before 8 (which was really 2am Paris time, meaning we had been up for about 20 hours). I'm hoping that getting up at my regular time of 6am this morning will help me return to my normal schedule by tomorrow when we go back to work.

I've downloaded my pictures to the blog for anyone that's interested and I will also try to create a site for more pictures, I am still working on discovering all the options the mac offers in this area, which seem to be pretty numerous.

I've really enjoyed blogging about our trip. I've forgotten how much I like to write and this has given me the opportunity to pretend I am good at it! If anyone wants to pay me to do this full time, please let me know ASAP!!

Thanks Kim for helping me set up the blog in the first place and being so patient with my many silly questions. I'll try to continue posting from time to time and will definitely be back next year for our next European adventure, either Italy or back to Paris again, who knows!

Thanks for everyone's encouragement and kind comments, I really appreciated them.

Laura :

Your blog has been a highlight these past two weeks. We leave for France in June and I have taken serious notes for our Paris leg (although the best plan is no plan like you two did!). Thank you for sharing and giving detailed directions for getting places.



Great blogging, we have been reading you almost every day, we are heading for 6 days in Paris(and Nice for 8 days) in under two weeks. Like you and your husband, we have a rental apt and not much of a plan.
We are looking forward to it, how can we view your photos.

Ciao Gino


I loved reading your blog! I learned about the passages in Paris and I'm so there!
I'm going to take my granddaughter with me for 2 weeks this summer, so I'll be dragging her along with me to those areas.
Are there any passages more conducive to 18 year old young women, like my granddaughter?

Also, I'm going to send you a PM about the fabulous clothing finds you scooped! I need to go there...;-)

All in all, your blog has been a great way to ease me into Paris-mode, Jo.

Thank you so much for taking the time to write every day. I'm going to do that very same thing while we're there, hopefully. You've become my role model!
Au 'voir, et merci beacoup,


Welcome home, Jo -- I've been enjoying your blog!

You should come up to Ottawa on Sunday (June 1) for lunch, we're have a very small Slow Travel GTG in the Byward Market.


Jo, it was my pleasure! Don't forget, you can always upload your photos to slow photos too!

Thanks for the great read! I enjoyed checking in each day and learning more about Paris.

Barb Cabot:

Thanks so much for sharing your adventures with us. For us at home it was the supreme vicarious thrill. You helped us escape to Paris through your vivid descriptions. It was a lovely trip for you and your blogging made it lovely for us as well. Welcome home!


Hello Jo,
Love you blog. I'm from Ottawa and planning to go to Paris this Friday with my husband & 2 daughters (15 & 11 yrs old). We only staying for 6 days then London for 3 days (wish ti have more time). We are going to fly Zoom from Montreal also. I'm renting an apt near St-Michel Notre Dame.
Thank you for posting


Jo, I love the banner you have on your blog. Can you tell me what bridge in Paris that is?


Johanne Dupuis:

Hi Donna,

It is the Pont Alexandre III, probably our favourite bridge in Paris. It is very ornate and beautiful, and we crossed it at least 3 times on our last trip.



Jo, thanks so much!
