The count down has begun!!!!

Hi all,
I have 6 days left before I leave for Paris, France!
Finally the apt. details are worked out and the driver is scheduled to pick us up at the airport when we arrive!
The journey to get there will be a long one, but when we step off of that plane onto foreign ground it will be worth the hours in the air. At least I keep telling myself that, lol.
I wish I could just snap my fingers and be there. I am not a happy flyer and if I could just appear suddenly on top of the balcony of the Eiffel tower, that would be tres magnifique!

I am so excited to show my penpal artist friend around this beautiful city and wow her with the art and architecture.
She and I met while taking an art history class a couple of years ago at our local junior college. She now lives in Maine, but we have been writing letters back and forth since then.

One day she had written that it would be a dream come true for her to go to Paris someday and I wrote back, "let's go". And that's how our little adventure transpired!
I believe that if you have a dream, then fulfill that dream!
None of us know how long we have on this earth, and really when you think about it, life is really short.
So, now in 6 days, I and my penpal will partake of an amazing adventure full of new situations, and new people, delicious food and breathtaking art and we can't wait!!!!

Whatever your dream or dreams may be, don't hesitate.
Start thinking about how you can make that dream a reality and just take the jump and don't look back.

Talk to you soon,

Deborah, I'm so excited for you and your friend! I've found that motion sickness pills (dramamine, meclyzine), have the added benefit of calming you down for airplane travel. The downside is, they can make you sleepy for the last half of the day.

Have a wonderful, wonderful trip! Kathy
