We're Home

Steve and Kelly at Versailles
Bop, Beep, Kelly and Steve at Antibes on the Cote d'Azur

Kelly and I are home from our amazing 2 week vacation in France. I'll give more details later, but we had a great time with our friends, Beep and Bop. We rented an apartment in Paris' 6th Arrodissement (the Saint Germain des Pres area near the Ecole des Beaux Arts) for 8 days. Then we spent 3 days on the sunny Cote d'Azure, France's Mediterranean coast. There, we rented an apartment in Nice and made day trips to Monaco and Antibes.
We had a few hiccups along the way: I lost my cell phone on the flight to France, Kelly got sick in Nice, I forgot basically everything I needed, we got on wrong trains, Bop constantly fought MasterCard, and the 4 of us shared 1 small bathroom with poor ventilation (if you know what I mean).
It was a great trip and we'll post our pictures in the next few days.
For now, we're glad to be home where we can understand people and read the signs.

There are two friends they went to France where there they spent three days. In this holiday they lost their cell phone.

To hell with HSBC and their MasterCard credit card products. I paid off the account and will be closing the card once we get our cash back bonus. We now will be using a new cash back Visa from US Bank.

MasterCard overseas IS A DISASTER...!

It was one of our best vacations ever. Well, except for the sick kelly day.

Sick Kelly Day was not a fun day. For those of you planning to visit the Cote d'Azur: don't get sick late Saturday night/Sunday. Absolutely every store is closed.

Sick Kelly Day was also my least favorite day. I can't look at chicken schwarma anymore.

Sounds like a very fun trip. Can't wait to see the pictures.

Hope you don't mind my stopping by. I saw the Joneses linked on another bloggers site and thought it was my blog.

What a fun trip and glad you're back. Feel free to stop by our blog.
