It’s All Maya!

If Life is an illusion, then why do I keep banging my head against the wall?

Si la Vie est une illusion, pourquoi je n'arrête pas de me taper la tête sur les murs?

It’s A Long Way To Machu Picchu But We Finally Made It!

December 7th, 2016 · By Lynn

30 hours flying with layovers: Paris – Madrid – Lima – Cusco. 2 hours in a taxi from Cusco to Ollantaytambo with a stop in Chinchero. 1 hour 40 minute train ride from Ollantaytambo to Aguas Calientes/Machupicchu Pueblo. 2 hours waiting in line at 4:30 a.m. to catch a bus up the winding mountain. 20 […]

Peru Here We Come!

November 10th, 2016 · By Lynn

  Part One: Ollantaytambo First of all, let me say, this was the best trip I had ever taken. The reason wasn’t only the gorgeous scenery of the Andes Mountains, or our lifelong dream of seeing Machu Picchu, but in large part it was due to the people of Peru. They were the nicest people […]

What’s Going On?

July 15th, 2016 · By Lynn

A beautiful rendition to the 1971 song, What’s Going On (sung by Marvin Gaye back then) that talked about all the problems that were going on in the world. Unfortunately, it’s even more fitting today in 2016. (Lyrics at the end of my post.) What’s going on? It’s a question I keep asking myself more […]

Home Again

January 31st, 2016 · By Lynn

Smooth sailing. Some trips go without a hitch, others are a disaster. When Patrick and I left in January to go see my mom we were optimistic that our trip would be as smooth as the one we took to Asia. There’s a saying in France, Les jours se suivent, mais ils ne se ressemblent […]

Paris La Joie De Vivre

November 16th, 2015 · By Lynn

November 13, 2015. 129 killed in Paris. What is this world coming to? I ask myself this question more and more. What kind of world are we leaving for the generations to come? This Little Blue Planet of ours is so beautiful and yet things continue to get worse. What has mankind learned from history, […]

Faites De La Musique – Make Music 2015

June 22nd, 2015 · By Lynn

Patrick looking around above the crowd. Last evening, Patrick and I danced in the streets of Paris until 1 a.m. We headed over to the Palais Royal to hear a concert, but it wasn’t really our cup of tea. The weather, however, was perfect and the evening turned out to be a great success. Fête […]

Finally! Those Ugly Locks Are Taken Off The Pont Des Arts!

June 2nd, 2015 · By Lynn

Workers taking down the locks. Yes! This beautiful bridge turned ugly. Patrick and I went to the Pont des Arts yesterday just to see them lift off all the ugly locks that have been destroying this beautiful bridge and making it an eyesore for the past number of years. There were quite a few Parisians […]

Nous Sommes Charlie

January 8th, 2015 · By Lynn

This was going to be my Happy New Year post, but what happened in Paris yesterday concerns all of us who enjoy freedom of speech no matter where we are in the world.  I think Canadian columnist Mark Steyn said it best when he was talking about the weekly newspaper Charlie Hebdo: “Charlie Hebdo was ‘forced to bear […]

Autumn Roundup

November 2nd, 2014 · By Lynn

I’ve had less time than usual these past few months and for a good reason.  My niece/god-child has been visiting us since August and it’s been a whirlwind three months.  We took her to both Normandy and Brittany and to a lot of the touristy places in Paris, although she was here before when she […]

Stop Destroying The Pont Des Arts! – An Open Letter To Tourists Around The World And Mayor Anne Hidalgo

September 8th, 2014 · By Lynn

Dear Tourists, Why do you come to the most beautiful city in the world and destroy one of the most beautiful views Paris has to offer?  Why?  Each time I pass in front of the Pont des Arts, I want to cry and, yes, scream at the same time. Chers Touristes, Pourquoi venir dans la […]
