Mar 17, 2005 - Happy St. Pat's from Paris (Day 2)

We are in Paris, our second to last stop. Once again, the keyboards here suck, so I won't be writing a lot. But we are here and safe and trying to find reasonably priced housing. Not really possible here. Anyway, if I can find an English computer, I will try to write more. Otherwise, I'll do my best to update in London. We love you all lots and can't wait to get home to see you all. Take care. Write if you can. Talk to you soon. Love, Abby and Melissa The actual entry from Paris, Day 2: We walked a lot again today. We slept in again, and...

Mar 16, 2005 - Paris: Gaining a Travel Buddy, Walking, and Da Vinci Codes

Bonjour! So I came to the City of Light for the second time in my life and was not disappointed. I did not really understand why they called it that, because it seems to have just as many lights as any other city in the world, if not fewer. However, as I discoverd the name does not come from street lights (or the heart of Parisians for that matter). Rather it comes from the actual city itself... On a clear spring day when the sun begins to set, the light just begins to play through the streets, aross the parks, off the buildings, and floats...

Mar 12, 2005 - Paris

Taking a high speed train, I got to Paris in about two hours, arriving around noon. My hotel is right in the middle of a marketplace which is ideal. I was able to check in early and head up to my room to drop off my pack. This room is a bit bigger than the last one, but still just a single. The location makes it perfect though. I'm noticing that many things are smaller in Europe; food portions, soft drinks, cars, etc., and I've never seen an elevator as small as the one in this hotel. I could barely fit in it myself, and it was a real...

Mar 4, 2005 - Paris

Well Malin and I travelled to Paris with her Mum and Dad, cost us next to nothing, for information you can get to Paris (or most other places by the way) for about ten Aussie dollars plus taxes (add $50) and that's exactly what we did!! Malins mum and Dad, other than Australia has never been abroad other than the ubiquitous 'package trips' although they are to places like Turkey, Dominican Republic and the Mallorca. So we saddle up and hit the road thanks to RYAN AIR. P.S fly Tues or Wed and you will mostly get the great web fares, we do...

Mar 1, 2005 - Paris, France

It's time to start heading back. We left Susanne's on the 28th. We got into Paris that evening. Took a little while to get a hotel, but we made it. We found out where we could wash our clothes and then pretty much settled in. We went and had a great dinner! Very very good! Then crahsed. We have been so tired. Staying at everyone's houses has been great but we have had to be on their schedule a bit. So besides being tired from traveling for so long, our schedules are a little off. So we decided to turn off all alarms and sleep as late as we...

Hey Everybody!!!! Here is the update for my last few days in Paris. I'm still not sure where I'm going from here, but I've paid for my hostel until the morning of the 3rd and I'll head out then. 2/27 -Well, I'm in Paris finally and let me tell you it was an adventure to get here. I tried to get tickets for the chunnel online but found out I had to go straight to the train station to go. Fine, so I went to Paddington Station like it said to on the internet , then I was told that I needed to go Kings Cross Station so I went. Then I'm told...

Scotts Eurotrip 2005

Feb 27, 2005 - Paris

After strolling the the quiet towns of the French countryside, Paris was a hard knock. We were in the city for the two coldest days of the winter and chased each other from hotel to cafe to museum then back again. We met our friends, Tom and Carrie, during a blustry winter at the Eiffel Tower. It was great to see our friends and share a full conversation (with other people!) in English over a hot chocolate. Tom proposed to Carrie the next day. Chris and I smiled at each other--happy for them and feeling a releived to be the 'old married...

Feb 14, 2005 - Valentine's Day in Paris

We arrived in Paris on a cold day, yet we were both warm - it was Valentine's day. This city is beautiful when it is cold - there are very few tourists. The restaurants are available, the service is excellent, and the food is outstanding. We had time to enjoy what we saw, without distraction, and we were treated in a very respectful way by the Parisians. I regret not staying longer, especially in light of the experience in Miami. I could have learned much more in Paris.

Feb 13, 2005 - Paris

My favourite city in the world. We caught the Eurostar from Waterloo and went under the channel - this train is sooo fast. My french, although bad did get us directions to our hotel after we ended up in the wrong part of Paris. The hotel was 'cosy' but pretty well located and allowed us to wander round Paris easily. Our one abiding memory however was the cold - it was freezing. My hands stopped working when taking a picture of Place de la Concorde and we decided against going up the tower as we had lost feeling to our faces at the bottom -...

Jan 22, 2005 - i am still alive!

Ok ok ok I know I have been distant recently! I am sorry! I feel like life has been passing by too fast and I have been running around non stop, from finishing up last semester to traveling Europe and getting installed in Paris with classes starting and excitement around me... frankly sitting behind a computer has been the last of my priorities! I guess, in a way, the "bummer" about living in a big amazing city you always feel like you can never be wasting time because there are always a million things to do! It is hard to know where to...

Jan 21, 2005 - Paris, France

I am in the middle of my second week of school and it is going well. After the first week of school I went to Visit Dan and Galen in Paris, France. It all started with the train ticket. Again the trains still aren't cleared so I had to travel by both bus and train. However once I got on the train I met this amazing woman named Ing-Marie. She and I chatted the whole 2.5 hours until she departed a bit before I. Then I needed to spend the night in the Copenhagen airport to wait and deal with the plane ticket to Paris that is sitting at my...
