Many of you are sad. You had planned a real trip to Paris this year, and your plans were canceled.
I did go to Paris this year. For real. Last winter.
MY (REAL) TRIP TO PARIS IN 2020
My sister and I in Paris in January of 2020
My sister and I planned a trip to Paris. We planned this trip for the winter of 2020. We heard a little bit of talk about the coronavirus in January, but it did not sound worrisome. We left for Paris in late January. Our big plane to Paris only had 159 passengers. I had a whole row to myself. The row in front of me and behind me was empty, too. We never learned why.
Do you see the children on their scooters in these pictures?
We were gone for seventeen days. We met up with my sister's grandchildren and their parents in Paris. Every day we walked many miles. One day we walked 12 miles. The children rode on their scooters.
I took a drawing book with me. Every day I wrote down a little about our day. I drew pictures. Sometimes I played Hangman with the children while we waited in the restaurants. The children drew in the book sometimes, too.
I brought one real book with me to Paris last winter. It was the perfect book for the trip. It is called Paris in Winter. I read it every morning with my coffee.
I'll share more about my trip to Paris next week.
