Paris Again!

Hello from the rainy Philadelphia suburbs!

It is a lazy Sunday.  Rainy and grey outside but cozy in here on the couch between the two snoozing cats that live here at the Chateau Working Stiff.  I am toying with the idea of baking cookies later. Who knows – I may even have some cider!

Several days ago, I wrote a post about the London leg of the trip to Europe we took this summer.  Over the past few days, I have completed two slide shows of the Paris leg of that trip, and have loaded them to YouTube.  The only reason for the two shows rather than one is that I broke it up in an effort to avoid putting viewers to sleep!  Please find the links below and enjoy the tour. read more

London Again!

Hello!  I hope everyone is well and enjoying the “June-in-October” weather we’ve been having. I just spent more than two weeks in Cape May, house and cat sitting.  At least four days out of the last week there were sunny and in the ‘70s.  Unexpected but enjoyable.  I actually sat on the beach several times.

I am writing today, for the last time probably (unless someone asks a question or something else comes up), about the trip we took to London this past summer.  I wanted to do an entry that hopefully will include some basic helpful information for anyone who might be considering such a trip.  Alternatively, for anyone simply interested in the mechanics of European travel.  While this post is dedicated to London, where we spent five days, I’ll shortly be doing a similar post about the eight days in Paris that followed. read more
