Globe Trotting Again !




Charlotte Woodson Antiques

Today my dear Paris loving amie Mary, and I are off to Paris.  If the "standby gods" are willing, we'll be arriving at CDG at about 6:15 am Paris time Thursday ( CDT 11:15 pm Wed.). Don't you worry, we will hit the ground running - and let the adrenaline rush do its job.  This trip, I will be meeting dear friends once again, and many new ones as well.  It will be a busy but fun trip no matter the weather. Mary and I have both made a list of things we've always wanted to see or do and this time we're determined to cross some of those places off our list.   I have blog posts already scheduled and will hopefully be able to share some of our adventures each and every day.  I promise to take a zillion photographs to share as soon as I return home.

Well, there's no need to wish you a wonderful trip because of course it will be a wonderful trip. Hope you are packing warm boots and thermal underwear. Look forward to a chat on the phone one day. To you and Mary - have a ball!

Merci everyone for your warm wishes. It will rain but c'est Paris! :)

It's supposed to rain through Friday, but then Saturday is supposed to be partly sunny to sunny and up around 13 or 14 C ! Go figure... don't know if you'll see much snow (or if you even wanted to...)

For some reason I was thinking you'd said you were arriving the 12th... is that when you're going home?

Do you have a phone in Paris you could shoot to me by e mail ? Monday may be the only day I'd even have a remote chance of getting in to town, don't know what you have planned for Monday 10th... You can reach me at :

33 6 16 78 41 27 (from Paris on local system 06 16 78 41 27 )

Safe travelling to you, and happy arrival this morning, oh boy, you'll be landing soon, and I'm just off to bed now... crazy ?

Wishing you and Mary a fabulous time whatever happens ! Would be great to see you though, and I'll bet Mary has some more surprises up her sleeve like Picpus...

Anne said...

Let me know if you have room on your dance card for coffee. I did a post for you back in December...did you ever see it? Oh well,you will see the Crillon in person while you're in town.

Virginia said...
