I have three pays to go until I leave. I am trying to spend as little as possible so that I can save as much as I can. One sister has very kindly offered to get me a driver to pick me up from the airport in Paris. This has given me much relief as I was super anxious about being over tired and in a foreign country for the first time. My other sister has offered to get me a driver to take me to the airport in Melbourne. I have wonderful sisters. I am very blessed with the family I was born into.I consider myself to be very lucky.
I have also been very lucky to have made contact with a lovely Canadian living in Paris who writes a blog called jetaimemeneither she has kindly offered to meet me in the first week I am in Paris to give a locals view on where to go and what to do. That will be fun.It sounds like she can drink at my pace too. woohoo A lovely patient at the hospital has offered to lend me a suitcase. How nice is that? For one week of the three I am in Paris a lady from work will be coincidentally staying in an apartment very close to where I am staying. It would be nice to catch up with her. I hope that happens . I have a cousin who will be in Europe for most of the time I am there. He is taking his son on a bit of a jaunt. It would really nice catching up with him. They are going to a Madness concert in London that I would like to go to . It is a little far away from where I am staying though. Madness will also be playing in Pairs when I am there. I will have to look into what other bands are playing in various places. It would be pretty cool seeing Madness in London though. I would like to take my cousin’s daughter, Bonney with me for the whole 6 weeks as she has a “magic” camera that makes me look a lot slimmer than I am . Knowing all these people will be in Europe while I am there has given it a really friendly lift If I was tigger I would be bouncing.
I still have to buy more euro , get a hair make over, try to learn a little bit more French.( I have been a little slack with that). I am tossing up whether I need luggage scales or not. I think I may get a little emotional as the plane is taking off. Years of saving ,dreaming and planning and it will finally be happening. I won’t howl but there may be a little tear.
If anyone from Paris or frequent visitors could suggest a car service in Paris, to whisk me away from the airport that would be great.
somehow it looks like the font size changed after the first paragraph. more learning required 🙂
Safe travels Bron! Share and Enjoy 😀
thanks. can’t wait
with Syria about to implode you must be feeling worried. If you are need of cheap accommodation in London you could always seek asylum in the Equadorian embassy. Worried…
Hi wetblanket. is your surname sadsack? I will note your tip re: the Equadorian embassy and look forward to your next tip. ‘)
Of course she can keep up with you on the drinks front. We Canadians are good at that sort of thing, you know. 🙂
