bonjour bloggers! well clearly i haven't gotten my sleeping habits back yet considering it's after 1am here - so what better time to blog. our travels to paris were so incredible and i have to say, this was the best trip there yet! it was filled with sights, food, shopping, and education - what a combination of my favorite things. after your great response to my european adventure video journal and the requests to do a paris one, here it is...the paris journey. it's definitely fun to share the highlights with all of you including the grueling travel schedule (almost 24 total travel time each way), of course the amazing city of paris, the fun adventures at the french flea markets, a glimpse into teaching with a translator (thanks again ludi-pops!), one of the many fantastic meals, and a few snapshots of my favorite memoirs...
i also want to thank the many of you who followed the journey on my blog and posted comments while i was away. as promised, i did my best to post a couple of times and it was cool to read about your excitement to be part of my travels. i thought, what better way to show my appreciation then to do some giveaways to random winners who posted a comment on the posts i made while i was in paris! so you lucky winners will receive one of my new rubber stamp sets from stampers anonymous! i think this could be the start of the whole random prize day, i like it...who knows when the next one will be??? well, enjoy the video journal - i know i say "amazing" over and over, but honestly it's even better...t!m
congrats to the following winners - please e-mail me your contact info:
Hi Tim - Glad you all made it safe and sound. Sounds like you had a super day today?! If I'd been at the french market, would be broke by now - LOL! And I love a man who gets his priorities straight, ahh - Starbucks, love them! Have a great trip, be safe and have fun. Wishing I was with you - sigh

What fun and what treasures you found! Paris is one place I've never been but hope to go to someday. Nice to be able to see it through your eyes for now. Hope your workshops go well and we look forward to having you back home soon.

I'm sure you are having a blast! Ok, just a few highlights you must do: Fauchon to window shop at pick up a few goodies. Coffee at Cafe De LaPaix you will never miss Starbucks again. And, step into the food court at Galleries Lafayette. They have some incredible goodies.If you have more time check out the food stalls around St Micheal metro stop. Ah, I miss Paris. :)

I've enjoyed your every step & adventure.
When I think of all the time I spent in Paris & how few times I hit Les Puces....
