Vive la France

Well it's done. Me and the Man booked our flight to La République française. (Sounds more tropical that way, non?) We ship out on Friday June 13th (doomsdayers keep your peanut gallery comments to yourselves)

We're there just two weeks so won't be getting to see all the family and friends we'd like to... if we did, we'd spend more time travelling cross-cross the countryside rather than visiting... which while not bad for sight-seeing, if by 'sight-seeing' you mean just seeing things through the window of a car or train, bad if you want to spend time in the cities, towns and villages you pass, not to mention time with your friends.

Where we'll be going for sure is: Paris, Nantes, Pornic, Rennes, St-Malo and Mont-St-Michel. There will undoubtedly be many other stops along the way, certainly high on my list to see are some of the magnificent Châteaux of the Loire Valley, Versailles, the Eiffel Tower, Notre Dame, the Louvre and pastries, pastries, pastries...

And the best news of all... while in Paris, staying with our friend Lionel, we'll not only have access to some incredible Cafés, but also, just around the corner from his apt, the newest BEN & JERRY'S Ice Cream Shop in France... So Didier and I need not fret about our Ice Cream addiction...

Croissants, champagne, vrai café, champagne, cheese, champagne, frogs legs, champagne, coquille-st-jacques, champagne, decadent pastries, champagne, wine, champagne and ICE CREAM!


Vive La République!

awwwwww I am jelous.
I want to come too! I want to come too!

Hope you fella's have a wonderful holiday - which airline are you flying with? if its Air Canada we may be on the same flight... but we will only be making a pit stop in Paris, waiting to catch our connecting flight to Athens, Greece. The details still need to be worked out on our end.

We're going Air Transat. They have by far the best prices! I guess we'll have to wave to you en route...

Merde ... I wanna see gay Pareeee too.
Have the best time you guys . Dreams do come true for those who believe .

Misster Kitty said...

Well if it wasn't gay before, it sure as hell will be after Kitty is through with it!

;-)

Maria said...

whats that suppossed to mean?
But aren't you and the Big D exclusive?

I'm sooooooo confused.

By the way Air Transat has ALL the old aircrafts from Air Canada (you know the ones they didn't want anymore because they sometimes make emergency landings in far off places like in the Azores) - I'm just saying!

We'll wave back!

Misster Kitty said...

Whaaaaaaaa?

It's vay-ca!!!... time to play!!!

And uh, hello?!?! I'm a big old poofter! Rest assured, I can make Gay Pareeeeeee Gayer... All I gots to say is "Leopard Print Homoness!" :-)

As for Air Transat using the left overs from AC... well if I get a free ticket out of it... I don't mind! lol

Maria said...

yeah free ticket .... they bring you half way to Paris and you swim the other half.

Have fun dahling!

Misster Kitty said...

No matter what you say I'd rather fly with Air Kukamunga than Air Canada.

No offense to Hubby, but I think AC sucks ass big time.

:-)

Maria said...

we'll remember that when its time to give out the FREE guest passes anywhere AC flies!

As for Air Kukamanga... you can fly them.

Misster Kitty said...

As mentioned on your blog, I'll just take the $$$ thanks...

Maria said...

no tickets and no $$$ for you!

That kinda felt like I was the airline ticket nazi for a minute. Remember that Seinfeld episode?
"NO SOUP FOR YOU!"

My version is "NO $$$ FOR YOU!"

Misster Kitty said...

Fine!

Be that way!

Just see if I come and decorate your house this Christmas!

:-P

Maria said...

just see if I make you any baklava this year! not like I know how to make it - but let's just pretend I know how for arguments sake. Heh!
