Best 28th Birthday Ever

What an amazing last few days, I am struck by the beauty of Paris, and its sophisticated style. I adore the public gardens and parks interspersed throughout the city; so well groomed, full of birds and ideal for people watching. Thankful for my good pair of walking shoes.

First evening in Paris

Great flight, arrived safely with no problems. After dinner in Luxembourg Gardens, we walked the streets of Paris and arrived in time for the lights to glitter at the Eiffel Tower!

Now time to get some rest in time for the big 2-8 tomorrow. :)

Bon Voyage!

Check in went smoothly with XL airlines. Everyone was wishing me a happy birthday and it brought smiles to the employee’s faces to know that I would be celebrating in Paris! My Osprey Farpoint 40L bag zipped up nicely just like a duffle bag. I had to check it because XL has stringent carry-on limits. 5kg or less, which fortunately for me, is enough for all my electronics, which include my iphone, kindle, canon cybershot, canon DSLR with telephoto lens, and this MacBook Air I’m typing on. I’m officially a flashpacker. Once I was safely past security, as a farewell to San Francisco, I indulged at Firewood Cafe with clam chowder in a sourdough breadbowl. Yum! Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Finals is on, I hope LeBron and Miami loses, mostly for the sake of Jon’s sanity.  Au revoir San Francisco!
