    Those slow, easy days mean you feel ‘at home’ with no need to rush around to see things. So glad your apartment issue was easily taken care of. Enjoy your Paris time!

    My daughter and I are going to be in Paris for 3 days next week and I hope we have nice weather also. Then we go to Toulouse on Friday where we spend one night and Saturday we go to the Chateau de Gudanes (Verdun) for a weekend experience at the Chateau. We are so excited to experience France since neither of us have ever been to France.
    I so enjoy your posts – a friend of mine in Huntsville told me about you and I have followed you since your trip last summer.
    Thanks for all the tips and hints of where to eat.

    I’m glad things are going well. Yes, the metro is a great way to get from one place to another.
    I love the photos, as always. Enjoy your days!

    Yes, in Paris,for those of us who love it, anything we do daily is just right. Some days it is going to see an exhibit and others it a great lunch out, and others is a day in the park or at a cafe. Do enjoy and share with us.

    Hi Linda and Bernie, welcome back! So pleased you are happy with your new accommodation… what a relief!

    I hope you enjoyed the Coronation today. Wasn’t the music and the day sublime! We’ve been watching all day.

    Sending love to you both, Antonia x

      I watched and thought it was to use your word “sublime.” No one does pomp and circumstance like the British. What was your take of Harry? I read “The Spare.” Have you?

    I am glad that you have had good weather! We had an apartment on Île St. Louis for two weeks in December and so enjoyed it. We didn’t eat at Sorza, but it is on the list for our next trip. We prefer to walk everywhere, if possible, and the Metro is a great people mover, but this last trip we decided to use taxis for those longer haul trips to the 20th. Faster and warmer in December.

      We are supposed to have tickets for the opening night reception at Les Invalides. Perhaps we will see you there!
