Our First Few Days!

We will begin by apologizing for how short this post will be....  Hey, we're on vacation.  ..and only have another minute or two left on this gratuite internet connection.  Let's see how quickly I can type!

The first few days: As told by Lisa

Our flight out of Indy was delayed. we had to "Home Alone"-it to our connecting flight in New York (Heidi, Ali, and Nigel, we waved to you all).  We barely made it.

We spent Wednesday in London, exploring by foot mostly.  We had some delicious Indian food.

Early Thursday morning, 5:25am London time, we hopped on the Chunnel to Paris.  We will be here until Monday.  Yippeeeee!!  This city is so wonderful!  I'm proud to say that my French is really coming along.  At this point in my traveling career, after having been here 3 other times, I can proudly say I can check into a hotel for up to 3 days entirely in French.  However, our reservation was for 4 nights.....

Well, the internet is about to leave us..  Off to eat some crepes with Nutella! :)


  1. Glad you guys are having fun! I can't believe you had delicious food in London!!

  2. At least when you checked in, you didn't tell them that your favorite bird was a starling, did you?

  3. I know it seems like a cliche, but if you're in Paris, it's really cool to be up in the Eiffel Tower at night when it sparkles (once an hour). We only did it because we were staying so close, but it really was a spectacle!

    Glad to hear you're having a great time!

  4. The vacation adventure continues! I am sure you will have all kinds of interesting and delicious food all summer!
    Have fun!!!

  5. Anne, we actually made a special trip to see the Eiffel Tower sparkle last night!
