After hours and hours of planning and preparing and checking off lists to get everything done, we are on our way to France!! We have a nice long 8 hour layover in Charlotte right now before we leave for Paris this evening, so it's a good chance to finish a few last minute things and switch to vacation mode. I'm going to try VERY hard to not do any work during the first week of our trip!
We are armed with our books and maps and wonderful suggestions from friends and sooo excited to see this beautiful area. We are flying into Paris and then taking the high speed TGV train to Avignon tomorrow afternoon and then renting a car there and driving to the village of Apt, which will be our headquarters for the week. We'll go on explores each day, finding the flea markets and whatever hits our fancy! Next week we'll return to Paris where I'll be teaching 270 students at Version Scrap because my classes are all sold out!!
Hopefully I'll find some WiFi along the way and be able to update a little. Can't wait to share it all with you!
I've got my pillow and I'm ready to go! :)
