I love Paris in the winter when it drizzles

by Janey Canuck in


Well, I can only assume I do. So far, I've loved Paris from afar. But soon, I'll be up close and personal with it because we're going to Paris & the Alps in just over a month.

Specifically, we're head to Chamonix via the Geneva airport. Chamonix was the site of the first Winter Olympics in 1924 so going there is almost exactly like if I was going to the actual Olympics. It has some pretty good skiing, since it sits in the Alps, which EDP is pretty keen on. And it also has lots of spas and boutiques, which I'm pretty keen on.

From there, we're taking an overnight train to Paris where we plan on taking in the obvious sites (The Eiffel Tower, The Louvre, Notre Dame, Musee D'Orsay, Champs D'Elysses, Arc de Triomphe) with a day trip out to Versailles and another out to Epernay to visit Moet & Chandon & Reims.

After that, it's home again.  For now, the anticipation and the planning is keeping me excited.  We have flights & hotels & trains all booked so now it's just the wait.
