Count Down to Paris...

Spring Flowers - Pike Market, Seattle

Well, we're getting down to the wire here, we leave on our trip this coming Thursday... (yikes!) I've realized that creating lists only works if I take them out of my head and put them down on paper!

We will be in Paris for a total of 3 days.., and England for 5. I am taking my laptop computer, and if all goes well, I will be blogging as often as the schedule allows.

I'm looking forward to all the photo opportunities..., I want to bring Paris and London and all the other places in between to you, via this blog:)

I found this Haiku about Paris in the spring and thought it most fitting..



Travel Haiku - Spring in Paris
By John Tiong Chunghoo

Paris spring
street by street we explore
the city like a flower

Paris spring
slowly but surely the city
blooms in us

Paris spring
foot by foot
we explore the city

Eiffel Tower spring
the city lights up
our dreams

Eiffel Tower spring
the city spreads out
like our dreams

They say springtime in Paris is the stuff of songs, daydreams, and romance novels. And there is a heavy dose of truth to that. Cruise the Seine river, admire art at the Louvre and the musee d'Orsay, and see the quintessential Parisian sights of the Arc de Triomphe and Notre Dam. Enjoy a good book and coffee at a cafe on the Champs Elysees, have a picnic of fresh bread and cheese at the Tuileries garden or take in a dinner show at the Moulin Rouge. Cap off your trip with an evening ascent up the Eiffel Tower to witness the City of Lights in full glory.

Keep up the great posts, Neinah. You're doing a wonderful job... I've just read through several entries and am so glad you are blogging, as you touch so many things that are important to me.

I've never seen so many cedar waxwings in one spot, that's amazing!

And thanks for the energy cookie recipe, I'm all over that!
