  • Back home and feeling great

    Just a quick update for everyone.... we're back on the West Coast after too many trains, a wonderful stop in Amsterdam, a much-needed catch-up with great friends in New York, and 3 flights.

  • The Strikes

    We saw a strike parade in Dinan, France and it had a good energy to it. People were chanting a bit, walking slowly through the streets, showing their support for the opposition to a change in the retirement age.

  • Miles to go before we sleep

    Paris is a walking city. Someone told me that before I left San Diego and they were completely correct. If you can’t get there by foot, you walk to the Metro and take the train.

  • Slowly but surely, I think we're starting to fit in

    With a haircut by a French barber and just enough French to get by, I’m claiming honorary (though temporary) status as a Parisian.

  • The unfamiliar and wonderful life we now lead

    Let me tell you a little bit about this strange, wonderful, and very Parisian life we’ve made for ourselves here. We live in the 9th arrondissement in an area known as Montmartre (or, as we learned from the owner’s son, “the Nine”).

  • I see London, I see France

    Determined to make the most of our time in London, we dug the sweaters and raincoats from the bottoms of our suitcases and bravely ventured into the cold and rain. We did as the locals and drank room temperature pints on mid-afternoon sight-seeing breaks.
