Oh how we hated to leave Bruges. But for Heaven's sake we were headed for Paris, so how could we be unhappy? The train switching in Brussels was a bit hairy; being sure we got on the right one, on time - and with everything written in a foreign language.
And now we are in the city of love. There are padlocks on several of the bridges over …
... Wilde and Jim Morrison reside among other luminaries), visit the Opera, eat baguettes in at least one of the jardins Luxembourg or Plante.
Hmmm...that might cover it. We will get out little boat pass for Monday and Tuesday so that our feet will thank us. Apart from the practical, it is seriously lovely on the Seine and better than a bus anyday.
If you don't know French, the title reads "Do you speak English?" I can't explain the number of times we said that as a group in Paris. We finally hit a country that does not speak english. It was definitely a challenge, but we made it through. Hopefully that is a good sign for all of the different countries and languages to come.
Our trip to Paris was a long one. We left bright and early, getting up at 3 am to make our train to cross over into the ...
Woke up around 11am & knew I just wanted to lounge around the apartment. Had a couple cups of coffee & puttered. Mapped out how I am going to get to Jeff's hotel tomorrow, I really have no idea of where it is, just going to take the Metro to Gare Montparnasse & ask for directions from some stranger, probably a serial killer!

TravelPod Member ReviewsAtelier Montparnasse Paris
Hotel Atelier Montparnasse: A FINE hotel in a civilized, more quiet neighborhood than the center of Paris which many would choose. The subway is steps away from us and my daughter is now a subway pro. She can get us anywhere and the subways are fast and relatively inexpensive. We are a grandmother, daughter and two children, 9 and just 12. We have an IDEAL set up which is 2 rooms off a very short hallway. We keep each room door open and the hallway door closed. Voila - privacy, togetherness, space and 2 bathrooms. Perfect. Plus the beds are divinely comfortable. We are all big fans of this hotel.
