Paris was freezing! Beautiful, yes. Inspiring, yes. Delicious, yes. But, oh, so so cold! We stood in line for hours to get to the top of the Eiffel Tower. It was 32 degrees F. Once on top, we gazed out at the astounding view with ice cubes for ears and popsicles for noses.
But whatever the weather, Paris is always a good idea. The day we climbed the Arc De Triomphe, the temperatures were more forgiving. A few batches of people were even picnicking on the top. We posed forever, taking each other’s photos catching the Eiffel Tower in the background.
Touring the Louvre gave new meaning to the cliché “walking our legs off.” There are 12 km of halls inside that museum, and it’s entirely possible to become hopelessly lost!
I bicycled with the students through a park in Madrid. We circled a lake which was breathtakingly beautiful. What a fun opportunity to join the Spaniards in their Sunday activities. We rode up and down rolling paths, even finding a magnificent slide park built big enough for adults!
I watched over my group of 30 like the proverbial hen. And I’m relieved to report that I delivered all the students home to their respective families. Whew!
Upon arriving home, I had a nice present! I discovered that The Lance Temptation is now available in paperback! Woo Hoo! Always thrilling news to an author.
We’re holding a Goodreads Giveaway, and I hope you all enter to win a free paperback copy! Enter here.
And a big thank you to those of you who post reviews on Amazon and elsewhere. I’m so thankful and appreciative! **hugs**
