I Wanna Be 20! 20 in Paris!





They've been to Versailles. They walked Montmartre and visited Sacre Couer. They've been to St. Chappelle and Notre Dame de Paris. From the blog of The Lovely Daughter, who is in Paris en route to Prague:

On Thursday we were originally going to go to a bunch of museums, but we met two guys from our hostel who were going to Versailles and and decided to go with them. We did not decide this until after we had gotten on the metro, so we hoped off the metro randomly and waited for them. It was a fantastic spontaneous decision and we had a lot of fun.

Last night was pretty fun at the hostel; we met several guys from all over the U.S. (South Carolina, Texas, Pennsylvania). With Kelsey, me, and Dylan who we met the other day (he's from Minnesota) we had a good portion of the U.S. represented. Its funny how you meet people from your own country whom you would never encounter at home when you are abroad. We had a really nice night in...after our long day of walking.

I am experiencing SUCH an intense sense of lost and wasted youth!

yeah, but that would be a LOT of walking with a broken toe and the other foot injured.

This type of living vicariously through our children is just fine. And, you're the one who gave each of your children their sense of adventure and wanderlust.

Ahhhh, I love Paris in any season or age as well! And Versailles is also a wonderful experience.

She is having the time of her life! Fantastic.

I've never, ever been to Paris. I'm glad your daughter is there.

It seems to be part of 'the fifties', looking back with a bit of longing for our lost youth.

It's not as if you've never been to Paris...

What you are doing now--pursuing a whole new life course--seems like it would be enough to satisfy your longing for youth. Ah, but then, education is the boring part. Paris is the fun part...

I've had some great adventures in life - BUT - they have never included anything overseas, let alone Paris (sigh)...so good for her - memories to last a lifetime! (and share with us)...

Diane said...

oh, yeah, that would be so fun!

I've never been to Paris....this is really giving me a serious case of wanderlust.

Why did you let yourself grow up? the superego is such a drag.
