Hello all Paris lovers,
Well, one and one half month back and I am in major return trip planning/daydreaming already! We spent a week in Paris this past Easter, followed by a weekend at a b&b ouside of Epernay, so that we could have the champagne experience.
I have off every year for spring break, so I'm looking at 10 days in April 2006. My boyfriend, while he loves Paris and is on board for a return visit, really wants to visit some other place during the trip. Now, I could spend the entire time in Paris with no problem, but I can see his point also. So I'm trying to compromise. We both love good food and wine. I'm a city girl at heart...while he loves the city, he could also be very content in the country. We don't want to spend each night in a different place...we're more of the slow travel type of tourists (we really enjoy the offbeat non-touristy kind of places, so Disneyland Paris is not on the radar - no offense to those of you who like that, it's just not for us)
OK...finally my question!! Could you suggest an itinerary that is doable in 10 days that would be fun but not exhausting? I'm thinking that I need at least 5 days in Paris...I could be flexible, but that's MY ideal. So that leaves 5 days for...?? We were thinking Burgandy...any comments on that? What about Belgium?? Normandy?? Ahhhh...There are just so many possibilties, and my head is swimming enough just with thinking about where I want to stay in Paris this time!
Thanks...I love this forum
