Tuesday April 12, 2011. We are in CVG about 2hrs early but that's OK the weather has cleared and it's good here anyway--we left with about 4" of rain and a little water in the basement. Oh well,we have good help with the house so won't worry about it!

Remembering Princess Diana (September 19, 1997)

In 1997 we made plans for a three week trip to Scotland and England.  Eleanor's ancestors lived in Glasgow for about 4 years before emigrating to Canada in the first decade of the 1900's.

2 rue de la Convention, 75015 Paris

 

I will be staying at this address from next Wed (20 Apr) to 27 April. It's in the 15th arrondissement. I have the following questions:

 

1. Suggestions for nearby dining

 

2. Suggestions for nearby food shopping, mainly for breakfast and snacks

 

3. It appears that the Eiffel Tower is within walking distance, maybe a mile. True?

 

4. It also appears that the nearby RER station (Javel) seems a better fit than the Javel Metro…

Almost ready!

we're packing our suitcase, and traveling light as advised. We leave our KY home on Tuesday for an Italy adventure, a Venice Tuscany sampler. I hope to maintain this log (probably by cutting and pasting) because everything I have read here on the Untours site has been helpful to me.
Wish us luck!!
