It’s hard to sleep the night before a big event, but here we are, bright and early on Monday morning, ready for our husbands, Dick and Jim, to bring us to Logan Airport for a 2:30 departure.
Delays and more delays! Instead of NYC, we were rerouted to Philadelphia in hopes of arriving in Paris in time to take the only train of the day to St. Jean Pied de Port.
After a long (nearly sleepless) flight over the Atlantic, we landed in Paris just minutes before the train’s departure. Unfortunately, due to long security lines for checking passports, we did end up missing our train.
So how did we spend our extra day in Paris? Drinking delicious Parisian coffee, having exquisite French pastry, and discovering the arching glass and metal architecture of buildings in the vicinity of Charles deGaulle Airport.
