And this trip, Donald is joining me.
It's our Christmas gift to one another.
I'll get to visit places I was unable to visit last September, and I'll get to experience all of it with Donald - that which I've already seen and that which we'll be discovering for the first time together.
And we will both be armed with our cameras - yay!
Paris is a city that fills one's senses. It's also heaven for a photographer.
After Paris, we're going to take a train to Amsterdam and spend a few days.
Time for me to start my pre-vacation reading . . .
Airline tickets have been purchased.
We've booked a small (very small!) studio apartment on the Île Saint-Louis, and a hotel room in Amsterdam.
Now I get to spend the next several months dreaming, reading and planning, which is, to me, a huge part of the fun of travel.
