Tom--We have just returned from a short trip out of town ourselves (nothing nearly as exciting as your trip though!) and am just catching up with several days' installments. What an amazing series of reports! Thank you so much for taking us along!

Thanks Carol - Welcome Home!

I took a few minutes to develop a Table of Contents for the Blog.
If you go to the LINK: Homepage
it will take you to the Table or just click on the header of any page and it will take you back.

One thing I do not like about blogs is going backwards in time. I always get confused if I have been there or not.

I noticed this morning the link to the Gaudi Exhibit was broken, so I fixed it. Just a nice intro to the exhibit.
Thanks everybody for following along.
If Normandy is not on your bucket list... you may want to add it.
As Paris... It is Paris.

My doctor, who loves to travel, always said about France: "You do not go to France to lose weight or to save money"
It is always good to follow your doctor's advice.

All subject to change.....but Italy remains top interest. If our daughter can fit in a trip we would consider starting in Como, she is interested in revisiting Lugano, so that's a convenient home base. We were so close to Venice one trip but ran out of time with a pending train strike, I think that's a must see. We have yet to venture to southern Italy, so that's why all subject to change! Just happy to be able to start talking about travel abroad again!

It is so much fun to plan after the decision has been made to go....
Now the question is where and for how long.
Italy always a good choice, but one day I have to convince the Beerman family on the Iberian Peninsula. smile

Here and amazing nature, and medieval cities, and beautiful villages, this is just a small list of what you will find exclusively in Normandy.

JimandBeth,

Thank you for your kind words. Travel is Janet and my favorite thing. We have been so lucky to experience so many things and hope to do more in the future.
We are currently planning a 3 week trip to Galicia and Basque region of Spain in October and I plan to blog on that trip also.

If you have any questions on your trip to Normandy please feel free to post or pm and we will see if we can help.

TomandJanet smile

Hi Tom,
I am VERY late to the party, but just had to tell you how very much I enjoyed your travelogue. Thank you so much for bringing us along. It brought back memories of the 2 times we visited France & Paris. The first time in 1990 and then in 2018. We were indeed fortunate to visit before both COVID and the tragic fire at Notre Dame.
