Good point, let me give you some particulars.
I don’t drink coffee, I speak some French. In Paris I will be visiting some museums, Cathedrals, and looking at architecutre. I plan to spend some time wandering around neighborhoods and just absorbing the atmosphere, especially if the weather is nice. I’m not much on “nightlife” but I hope to see some live music and possibly shows.
Once I leave the city I need to head to Roanne where a friend and her family are living on a canalboat. Then I may go to Marsaille where I know someone but haven’t heard back from him yet.
I normally like to hike and bike, I may rent/borrow a bike in Paris and see some more terrain. If I make it to the mountains some short hikes would be great. I’ve never been to the Med so that is possibly on my list as well.
I’ve only been to France once, just barely touching the country while out for the day from Heidleberg Germany. I’m taking this trip because I’m between jobs and needed to get out of Boston for a while. France has always been on my list of destinations but it kept on being pushed back for other, more exotic locations. Now it’s time. Ah, the joys of unemployment.
Thanks for the offer Anahita! I’m sure we can arrange to meet in the City of Light. Mini-dopefest!
