Entrecote at Cafe Hugo

May 7, 2010. Cafe Hugo, Place des Vosges, Paris, France. After a full day at the Louvre, we headed home, refreshed ourselves and headed for Cafe Hugo for a late lunch/early dinner. We started off with Soupe a l'oignon "maison." Eleanor asked the waiter what kind of steak is "Entrecote." He pointed to his ribs, but couldn't think of the English word. He pointed to the next table of young ladies, and said "Ask them. They speak English." They called it a rump steak, and said it is very good. The… Continue

Paris time saver charts

In preparing for our recent Paris Untour, I made up a two page chart titled "Best Days To See Sites." They are the result of months of research.

He and Rose, as well as their daughter and son in law have been long time Idyllers. I first met them here about 25 years ago on their first Idyll trip.

Koln (Cologne) Accommodations

I am traveling to Germany this summer and was wondering if any of you can recommend a place to stay in Koln? Also, have any of you traveled via train from Basel, Switzerland to Koln. If so, any advice? Happy Travels!

Isn't it wonderful to be able to travel through Bill's eyes! His enthusiasm for travel makes me so happy. I am able to "see" France vicariously, and since I will not be traveling there, this really is nice. Thanks Bill. Happy Travels!
