Back to Paris - Yay!

And this trip, Donald is joining me.  

It's our Christmas gift to one another.

I'll get to visit places I was unable to visit last September, and I'll get to experience all of it with Donald - that which I've already seen and that which we'll be discovering for the first time together.

And we will both be armed with our cameras - yay!

Paris is a city that fills one's senses.  It's also heaven for a photographer.

After Paris, we're going to take a train to Amsterdam and spend a few days. 

Time for me to start my pre-vacation reading . . .

Airline tickets have been purchased.

We've booked a small (very small!) studio apartment on the Île Saint-Louis, and a hotel room in Amsterdam.

Now I get to spend the next several months dreaming, reading and planning, which is, to me, a huge part of the fun of travel.

I have a copy of the book Permanent Parisians you are welcome to borrow! It tells about who is buried in each of the graveyards. I made a run into the same one you did-- loved the cat dedicated to the memory of Ricardo, and saw Satre and Simone Bouvier-- and wished I'd had this book then, to be able to find the various graves.

Aren't you a sweetheart?! Thank you! I was able to find a used copy shortly after we returned from our trip, or I would take you up on this offer. It's an excellent book!
