We're Off To Paris...Just Not Yet!
My best friend and me were talking recently about how Lockdown has got us reflecting on our lives ~ how life is so short, 'don't know what's round the corner,' and so on. So many of our plans for this year have been dashed. We both agree that 2020 is turning out to be quite *&?*@! We're both positive, if not pragmatic, realising that COVID isn't going anywhere any time soon. Mind you, what we do have are our bucket list of trips to look forward to, including a trip to the Far East in 2022 ~ we'll need to book beginning of next year (always the plan since pre-COVID).
While keeping fingers crossed our planned weekend theatre trip in December will still go ahead (watch this space), we both agreed for our sanity's sake to plan a trip for the relative near future ~ somewhere to look forward to and won't cost the earth. Something to get us through the rest of the year ~ hopefully the home run of this COVID crisis.
So although it won't be until next spring, it is a hop, skip and a jump on Eurostar (international train from London). They're only an hour ahead time wise, and I can speak French. Well, ok, school girl french ~ Bonjour, s'il vous plait and merci, the basics! Think I can just about order coffee and something to eat in french. Parisians very much appreciate if you at least try to speak french, and saying Bonjour goes a long way. Yes, we're going to Paris and we are so excited!
Just realised that after January 1, 2021 we will need a Visa to visit France ~ welcome to post Brexit shenanigans!
