less than four weeks until Paris!







I'm getting giddy. Really truly excited.






I am heading to Paris in less than four weeks with one of my besties. We are meeting one of my oldest friends (okay, she isn't old - we have just been friends forever) there.





Three girls, three days, in Paris.

can. not. wait.





Kasey and I will then take the train to Avignon for three more days. We booked our tickets yesterday.





In Avignon, we will meet Pierre, our new friend. We already *heart* Pierre. We will have a car in Avignon to explore the area. We booked the car yesterday as well. I wonder how far we will explore...?





We are staying in an old Mas, or farmhouse while in Avignon. It looks absolutely beautiful~




After Avignon, I will say goodbye to Kasey - she will head back to Paris, I will head to Toulouse to see another amazing friend. I will spend a week with her, hopefully improving my french. Hopefully.




I feel quite confident that there will be endless adventures (and probably all sorts of trouble) to be had in Toulouse. Have I mentioned that I am giddy?

Anamarija said...

hope you have a wonderful time in France! you might be suprised, because day is quite long in that period of year (until 21 or 2130h), which makes it better for exploring the city!

bye

Suzann said...

I can only imagine what an amazing trip this will be!

Happy Friday.

Ange said...

I'm so excited I almost couldn't comment on your post. Read it 5 times and raced away. Too unreal to be real ;-) You will improve your French for I will let you order all the cheese, wine and yummy stuff from the markets and bargain away at the brocantes ( I'll just keep a watchful eye to make sure they don't seduce you into paying extra with a cute French accent and a smile!)

Corine said...

I wish I only had 4 weeks left :( I love the Farmhouse. Have a wonderful time, it looks and sound exquisite. Cannot wait to hear about it.

Charlotta Ward said...

Wow - I am so jelaous (in the most friendly way x) - Paris is very close to my heart. Lived in France years ago and it is an amazing country!

Don't forget to visit the legendary 'Merci' store when you are there.

Bon Weekend cherie!
