April In Paris is a favourite movie of mine. Billy Crystal and Marge Simpson. What could be better?
My parents and older siblings have been. I have not. Do I want to go? Of course I do.
Of course I want to experience
but I’d rather visit Normandy or the Brittany Coast.
Mostly though, I want to visit Coupvray, the village where the inventor of braille was born.
I don’t speak French. I heard a lot about dog poop after my family visited. I hear that’s been cleaned up since.
Just recently, a friend and I were discussing checking out the catacombs, if I ever get to the capital of France and if she ever gets to return there. She tells me stories of visiting, as a teen, on a school trip to Europe and I hear the emotion in her voice when she speaks of being up the Eiffel Tower.
Forty and Fantastique
for a travel related word because there’s nothing more, I enjoy jotting/writing about, than travel and place.
