AWAY WE GO....

So in a few hours we leave for the airport for our (5:35pm)flight to Europe. As you know most days I will be on my own since my husband is on a business trip so please pray for my ability to fend for myself and for my lungs to cooperate.

London for a 4 nights stay here then off to a smaller town for a few nights. Mark will actually leave me in London for a night. He has a few smaller trips to make while we are away. After London we will be at the staying here in Worcester, UK.
In Paris for a week. (Paris Air Show) This is where we will be staying, it sounds wonderful. The Golden Tulip Little Palace and pretty close to everything I want to see.


Turin, Italy for a few nights then back to London. (I won't be visiting Rome)



Mark came up with this great idea, we are going to leave Paris on Saturday and take a day or two to drive to Turin. (400 miles) Sounds wonderful to me. If you know of any town we should stop at along the way let me know. We don't have a clue! But we are staying here when we get there.

Then to my surprise I get to go back to London for a few days!!! (honestly just got this information today) I was so afraid I wouldn't have time to see the things that are special to me. For some reason I want to go to the London Zoo so this might be the opportunity to do that. We will be in Gatwick staying at a Marriott Courtyard. I must admit it sounds exhausting changing hotels so often. We also stay at the Renaissance at Heathrow on two different occasions so that's like 8 hotel changes. The 8 nights in Paris at the same hotel will be the best!!


See you in three weeks ....................


P.S. I am thankful that our daughter and SIL are living here and can take care of Skye.

THERE IS A NEW POST TODAY AT DEBBY'S TREE.

If you wear out stop for a cup of tea or glass of wine in a cafe or pub. That's a huge part of the culture and you'll feel like a local. Bon voyage!
