Things I've been reading...

Some things/blogs/books I've been reading to prepare for my trip:
David Lebowitz has a blog and even lives in Paris, so he should know stuff, right?  Well when I read this today, I decided, I'd really rather have a different kind of jam, but he does offer lots of GREAT information and yummy recipes on his blog....the post I'm referring to is HERE!!!

He has lots of good recommendations for living the life in Paris! Go check it out!
Then of course, there is Rick Steves blog and website, that basically can tell you AnYtHing about traveling, especially traveling in Europe.  Gee, what a hard job, right?  Traveling the world so you can offer the best of what to do and not to do!  Great travel tips HERE.
Then there's always GOOGLE!! It offers loads of info, maps, images, etc of what to expect on your travels.
The list of accommodation possibilities is endless.  We happen to be renting an appt., hoping to have a little more room (European hotels are not known for their large size!), a washer and dryer, as well as a small kitchen.  There are numerous companies from which to rent an apt.  I'll let you know how it turns out, but from the looks of it, it will be enjoyable.  Ten years ago, when we went to London, we rented a flat, and it worked out perfectly!  I will let you know how this one works out!
So, my friends, for today, Au Revoir!!!
