First order of business, start the blog. Miles just helped me out, and now I actually need to write something.
Perhaps I should start with a mission statement?
The purpose of this blog is to keep interested folks in the loop during our long-awaited honeymoon to Paris. Post a few pictures, wax lyrical about the glories of French art and cuisine; that kind of stuff. Plus, my memory being utter s**t these days, I can write my impressions down for recall at a later date.
So, it's now T-minus one month and 8 days. We fly out of San Luis International Airport on May 9th. So far, I've done a lot of "window shopping" online. I've asked my buddy Stimpy to make me a dress or two. I've combed through the multitude of guide books we've been given over the years to create a "Must See" list. We've booked a romantic apartment for our 10-day stay.
Miles & I have set some rules for ourselves. First, we aren't going to try to see everything. In fact, we plan to avoid many of the big tourist sites. We've agreed to give the Tour Eiffel a miss. No plans to shop on the Champs Elysees. Our goal is to experience Paris as a native would.
Wish us luck!
