Days 7-9, Paris 2014

Tuesday October 7, 2014

Today was designated as a shopping day--for souvenirs and mementos to take back home to the wonderful folks who care for our house and pet while we are away, for family, and for our 30th anniversary!  We did not get an early start, being a little tired from the day before, but after a relaxing morning we ventured out.  First we took the bus to Opera, and from there walked to Lafayette Galleries.  What an amazing glass dome in the department store!  It…

Days 4-6 Paris October 2014

Today was Tower Day! We started off early to get to Montparnasse Tower, a huge skyscraper that gives a wonderful view, from the roof, of the Eiffel Tower and of Paris and its other landmarks. We got there at opening, and though there were lots of tourists, we were soon whisked up to the top floor. From there, we ignored the picture taking ( just say "non, merci"and go on), and then we climbed another two or three flights to the roof. The views were spectacular, even tho the day was not the… Continue

Swiss Heartland Untour - May 6 to June 4, 2014

Wednesday, May 21, 2014

The songbird and I were both up at 4:50am.  The skies were clear, and the temperature was already up to 60 degrees Fahrenheit at 5:30am when Eleanor got up.

Breakfast included yogurt, 1/2 banana each, corn flakes with milk, orange juice and coffee.  The large box of cornflakes was purchased soon after arriving in Sachseln.  It wasn't…

Days 1-3 Paris Untour 2014

Days 1-3 Paris Untour 2014

Well we have recovered and are back to the usual days, and it is getting much colder out, so I finally have time to do a report about our trip to Paris. It's a big city! I had no time, or inclination, to blog after each day as I have done in the past, but I did make notes and took 674 pictures and a few movies, so here goes:

We arrived at CDG at 6 AM, due to a schedule change by our airline. It made our arrival inconvenient, as Untours checkout…

(14) Swiss Heartland Untour 2014 (Day 15) Pilatus

Swiss Heartland Untour - May 6 to June 4, 2014

Tuesday, May 20, 2014

We were both awake at 5:10am, as was the songbird outside our window.   Unable to fall back to sleep, we finally got up at 5:35am.  It was a sluggish start to the day.  Late nights and less sleep were beginning to have an effect on us.  The thermometer registered 60 degrees Fahrenheit, and the skies were clear and blue.  The predicted high for Sarnen…
