And She's Off! to Paris, no less

My sweet ZB (little sister) just worked out a much-needed vacation, using her fly miles and meeting a friend who's hotel is paid for, so basically all she needs is food and souvenir money. This sweet dear sister has had a struggle involving personal disappointments. She has struggled, but today, I just talked to her on the cell phone, she has boarded a plane which flies to Toronto, then onto Heathrow Airport, then on to Paris. She says about 1:00 AM, my time, she will have landed and be where she is supposed to be. It all came together in 5 days, no less. She was even able to use some vacation time (benefits which she didn't have a year ago), and her pay check will be about the same when she gets back. What does she have to lose? She is so happy, that I am happy for her as well. What a darling, worthy little sister. YEA. I celebrate for her, and rejoice in her overdue, much-deserved happiness.

I'm envious of your sister. Paris is such a great city to visit. Last April, we put together a trip to Paris in just a week. She'll have a great time. Hope she knows some French, even if it's only "Bon Jour" and "Au Revoir". We found that most of the French really knew some English, but acted like they didn't. This was especially true in cafes and bistros..places that Americans are most likely to go.

She lived in Europe for 6 years, speaks German fluently and gets along very well in almost any country where she travels. She has been to Paris before and has where in mind she wants to go, since she said she missed these places last time. I am so happy for her, I just wish I had known, I would have gone along. She is the MOST fun to travel with.

Wow! Now THAT's adventurous! I like the idea of spur of the moment HUGE trips like that.

I hope she has a great time.
