Our street in Montparnasse

Could it really have been 50 years since our wedding? It didn't seem possible, but the date on our marriage certificate was June 1963, so here came our golden anniversary year in 2013. Such a special milestone called for a special trip, and we decided France would be the perfect spot to "go for the gold."

Our anniversary trip started with nine days in Paris, continued through northern France, and ended in the Dordogne. Rather than write one massive trip report, I'm breaking our three weeks into three separate reports, since each week was so different.

Here is the first installment: a week (actually nine days) in Paris in a neighborhood new to us: Montparnasse.
