“I’d like to see Paris before I die. Philadelphia will do.” ~ Mae West
(Dedicated to Laura Ingalls Gunn)
While I was away from The Land of Blog, Thomas thought I needed a break and whisked me off to France. It was breathtaking.
We stayed in a quaint cottage in the French countryside.
We ate at bistros and visited the shoppes that lined cobblestone streets.
We road bikes on winding roads, our senses alive with the sights and scents of spring.
We visited Paris and stayed at Hotel de Crillon which is rich in history and culture, decorated in a Louis XV style. The lobby as magnifique!
Dining was superbe.
There was so much to see, the Eiffel Tower, the Arc de Triomphe
No, nothing is like springtime in Paris.
Except of course The 2011 Philadelphia Flower Show.
