We have been planning thi s vacation with my family for almost a year. The plane tickets were purchased 7 months in advance. When the day came to actually go we all arrived at the airport with hours to spare. We did our best to sleep on the plane and managed to get a couple of hours of uncomfortable sleep in before landing. We arrived in Paris around 10am after dropping our bags at the rental house we walked to Notre Dame, stopping for some crepes on the way. We also visited the cutest little bookshop and had some ice cream. The Catherdral was very crowded, and the dome was closed so we weren’t able to climb to the top. But we were all tired by the end of the day so it was probably just as well.
