Le Weekend In Paris…Resting, Packing, and Laundry
C’est Dimanche. It’s Sunday morning after a festive, fun, busy week. We are resting up for a new exciting week ahead…a trip to Norway’s coastal region with Bernie’s French cousins, Pierre and Laurie Verdier. You’ve met them many times before if you’ve been on the blog for a while. We link up with them tomorrow at Charles de Gaulle airport for a 5-day Norwegian visit. Alas, the weather will be quite cool, in the 50s and low 60s during the day and much cooler in the evenings. Can we say wardrobe malfunction? Laurie suggested gloves which we’ll have to purchase there if we need them. I tried with diligence to cut back on clothing this year and finding it a challenge even here in Paris. I bought a black sweater/shirt yesterday and something akin to a jogging suit with warm pants and a jacket…all on sale. This will have to do me. Laurie says that clothes are a low priority in Norway; warmth is the top concern.
We have no idea what our electronic set-up will be but probably just fine as we’ll be staying in a nice hotel the entire trip. We will fly from Paris to Oslo and connect to Bergen. We will actually stay in Harstad. Anticipate some beautiful photo opportunities to share with you.
Today is a day of laundry and packing so few photos to share other than these “street scenes” which you might find interesting.
We so appreciate all of your feedback and comments. Forgive me if I don’t respond to each one, depending on time to do them all.
Have a lovely weekend,
L & B

Bon dimanche, L&B! I love the sound of those low temps in Norway (but then again I’m not a sunshine gal from Alabama 🙂 ). Can’t wait to hear about your time there.
We will try to hold onto the Paris warmth in the coming week for your return. You guys know how to live! Cheers and happy travels.

Regarding the possibility of Bernie sleeping standing up, it just shows that he’s a man of many talents; and besides, at our age a nap is where you find it…or where it finds you!

I’m so looking forward to your Norway journey!

I tried 2 sentences and the site told me my comment was “too short.” So here…Have fun!

Linda, I may have told you that I have Norwegian roots on my father’s side. I have longed to go to Norway for years so I will be interested to learn from you. Also, you should know that there is an Alabama poet — Robert Gray — who lives in Bergen and teaches at the University there! He’s from Mobile and posts on FB if you want to look him up.
We will continue to enjoy your travels!

Hi Jeanie, I’ll like him on FB and let him know that you and I are friends. Always a small world.

Good! I know he would love to know you are coming to Bergen.

Linda, you will love Norway, but you will soon discover that if you see one fjord you’ve seen them all. Jim
