Beautiful article!
Loved the writeup! I traveled to France last year and used a travel company to book my trip. http://www.novatravel.com .. They put me on a very similar itinerary and I had such an amazing time. Cheers!

Great sights to see
Hi Lynne I have thoroughly enjoyed your journey in Europe! There are several places there that I want to visit. Wish Mac would drive a car over there but he won't. I could do that but he is not a navigator!! Have to get a Sally. Ruth and Tim leave Paris today for Belgium then Amsterdam.They are very keen to see those poppies in the fields.Thanks for all your effort with the blog. You can enjoy summer now! Love Jocelyn
