After the Paris tour I am going to visit friends in the Midi Pyrenees and have purchased my train ticket but it turns out that I cannot return to Paris on that same train as they are performing annual maintenance on the tracks so the two days that I would have opted to travel I am unable to go by train...so I have called my travel agent to see what she can do to get me on a flight back to Paris or change my flight home.
Fingers crossed she can make it work.
"Planning a trip" just like in life, one needs to be flexible, patient, and not expect that "everything" will go according to plan!
Thank you all for the constructive advice and feedback on my Paris wardrobe...
"3 weeks in a carry on" the first list of things I thought that I would take with me.
I have amended my list already!
I've ordered some light capri length underthings from Lands' End from their thermaskin line and I am pretty sure that...unless the weather forecast drastically changes, the sandals are staying home and my Barbour vest is coming with me!
I've decided to take a long sleeved black dress wrap style instead of the sleeveless Banana Republic dress and may or may not take the print dress...I think my basic look will be black pants or jeans with a tee or a tank and a cashmere sweater, vest and scarf, short boots and trench coat.
I think I'll pack a beret as well as my "texting gloves" and umbrella.
I bought some packing cubes and will use a few of them.
The local pharmacy has been a great source for small sizes of Avene face cleanser, moisturizer, serum, masks and the La Roche Posay 60 spf sunscreen
I've also found wee bottles of Tylenol, hand sanitizer and toiletries.
Zip Loc bags will be used for the liquids and I'll pop in a couple of extra
just in case my laundry does not dry in time.
I've got several lists in my file with a few more things to find.
A light Fossil black leather cross body bag was purchased at the consignment shop.
I will put that inside my Longchamp bag.
I've been so immersed online checking out things to see and do, reading blogs and checking out Pinterest that time has flown by...
It was way past my lunchtime by the time hunger pangs started so I whipped up an easy egg burrito and brewed a pot of Lapsang Souchon tea.
It tasted delicious.
I was satisfied with the taste and the way it looked.
(within my daily WW point count)
Tea Time...one of the joys of my afternoon routine.
which is great because the Country Living UK awaits
and Louise Penny's The Beautiful Mystery is on the table too.
Now which one shall I read?
Thoughts and comments are welcome...
you are helping me SO MUCH!
