We leave for France next weekend and I am just now getting on the ball with packing and booking. Brent and I are traveling light so that we won't waste any time on lost luggage and to make it easier to hop around France. I am using the same backpack that I used six years ago when I went to Europe with friends. I pulled out the bag last night and it looked tiny! I'm afraid that I am no longer the light, efficient packer that I used to be! Here are a few items that are coming with me...
Kai Roller Perfume, yuummmm
My tinted moisturizer with sunscreen
A Rikshaw Tunic
My new Sheridan French dress!! It actually hasn't come in yet and I got it for another event, but think it will be perfect for France! I've been wanting one forever! Now please don't tell me that everyone in Paris dresses in all black like New York City. If it is chilly, I might have to save it for the French Riviera.
Worishofers orthopedic shoes! I read about these on the Rikshaw blog (she took them with her on her trip to India) and she swears that they are the most comfortable traveling shoes. They are inexpensive and I think they will go with most of my outfits, so I hope they work out for me!
Turkish towel to use as a travel blanket and towel along the Mediterranean.
This next image is the hotel/bed and breakfast that we are staying at in Aix-en-Provence. The hotel is on a bustling little street in the historic part of downtown with a restaurant downstairs. All twelve bedrooms are unique and the decorating is just so French! Can't wait!
And finally, here is a picture of the renovations outside today. I Came to open and the street was closed and covered with tractors. The bricks are slowly being uncovered and by Friday the street should be back open.
