Last Call!

Last call- boarding for France, April 20th, 2005, estimated return April 26th. Shaun decided that she couldn't afford to go. I would love to have a travel companion this time, but if not will go alone. Anyone interested? I speak French adequately.

Flight around $400, and a 4 day rail pass if two people buy is about $200 a piece. Lodging split should be less than $40 a person/night....Leave Wednesday 4/20, arrive Paris at 9am Thursday. Depart 4/25 Monday late afternoon, return Tuesday evening.


Toying with the following itineraries:

#1- North France: Rennes, Versailles, Mont St. Michel, Beaches of Normandy
#2- East/Riviera: Beaune, Avignon, Nice, Antibes, Nimes
#3- West: Bordeaux, Nantes, Bretagne

No Marseilles or Toulouse, short time in Paris (front and back end)
While in Paris- another visit to Musee d'Orsay, Rue Cler, Left Bank.

I want to pick up Rick Steves book on France, maybe get some ideas from there...Would love to explore back doors of France.

Thanks for stopping by!
We'll see if I get to go- my boss is being squirrelly about me going, since it's so close to the week I just had off for SXSW. Plus if I wait, I could make it an 11 day trip instead of 6-7 days.

That's neat- have you both been there, or just know a lot about it?

I went to Shakespeare and Co. on the Left Bank, and Deux Magots, back in 2000. Reminds me that I need to write an entry about that French experience, especially a jolt from Matisse!
