Why you say? WHY NOT??
For some reason, crossing a big wide ocean is like going to the moon for some (even though no one has ever been there either, don't get me started) ANYWAY. Experiencing another culture is not just gazing at typical attractions but shifting your eyes to the lifestyles of the locals. These people remind us that there is more to life than work. More to work than profit. It’s ok to linger, its necessary to USE the benches in the park. And a picnic blanket is a staple in your life.
This is not vacationing. It’s traveling. It's work, but the most rewarding and life-changing journey to take. These will be the memories we will share with our kids.
Having kids may not be the reason we are going. But not having kids is the reason we can.

Not without our groceries! We decided to act as locals and pick up our yummies from the local store to snack on while in the Versailles gardens.
Versallies is most impressive. Massive and detailed. It was amazing to see how royalty lived, while the common people were living in poverty. We finished off our exploration of this palace with a Serenade in the Hall of Mirrors, and a gorgeous fountain/fire/llight/and fireworks show. We fought our way through 20,000 people who attended that show, just to make it back to the LAST train to Paris. We weren't done yet! 1 am was the perfect time for a crepe at the Eiffel Tower.
