Adventures in Solo Travel

My First Journey - Paris

USA | Monday, 17 April 2017 | Views [158]

My kids have grown and left the house, most of the year.  My oldest is on his own and a grown man and my youngest is a sophmore in college.  I am home alone most of the time now and being a single parent for 17 years, I find I am enjoying it.  I have wanted to travel my whole life but never took the money or the time, as kid stuff always seemed to come first.  Not any more!  Now is MY TIME!!!  

I call myself GypsyLady because I see Gypsies as beautiful, a little wild and free.  That describes me right now in my life pretty well.  

My first international trip is to Paris with a short stop in London on the way home.  My niece is living in Paris and is letting me stay in her apartment while she travels.  I think in my other life, I was a worldly Parisian.  At least I am pretending that is the case with a great apartment in downtown Paris near Notre Dame.  Let the adventures begin!
