Subject: Past travel and future plans
Ciao and Bonjour Ziners,

Having raised two children to early adulthood it is time to do more travel outside of the USA. Two years ago I spent a week in Rome, last year I returned for three weeks in Italy. I started in Firenze, worked my way though a few hill towns of Tuscany and Umbria and ended up in Roma! I was never so happy as when I returned that car to the airport in Roma. :-)

This year I plan to spend 10 days in Paris during July. I will be spending about 5 1/2 days with a Rick Steves tour and the remainder of my time on my own exploring Paris. I love to pick and interesting street or neighborhood and wander about, enjoying the stores, the people, the sights and the cafes. I have heard they have a few cafes in Paris! :)

Best Regards, Paul, near Seattle
