Postcard from Paris
I just can't resist anything with Paris in the title, and this song from The Band Perry is no exception. If they have made a video yet, I can't find it. Maybe they are in Paris right now filming it. Watching the Eiffel Tower sparkle. Strolling along the Champs-Élysées. Sipping coffee in a little café. Climbing the steps up to the Sacré-Coeur for a view of the city.
I am planning my 2012 trip(s). I have one certain one, with 19 students and Arles Lucy helping me chaperone. We will spend 6 nights in Paris, a day in Normandy at the D-Day sites, and then 6 days with our friends in Villeneuve-lez-Avignon for a homestay/school visit. With a day trip to Arles, bien sûr. I may also go for a quick 5-day trip in January with a group of teachers. And the BFF and I are still discussing a girls' trip to Paris and Provence in June.
So... I will get my Paris fix. And my Provence fix. Yes, I certainly will. But until then, it's...
Like a postcard from Paris when I've seen the real thing.
Like a postcard from Paris when I need the real thing.
But don't misunderstand... I love sending and receiving postcards. I have quite a collection.
Bon appétit, The Band Perry and Paris!
