We’ll always have Paris, but hopefully not this again…


Damn staircase. It is pretty though. But then there is this:

    Laughing…bet that was fun with suitcases and groceries.

      Groceries were fine, the suitcases not so much…at least there was a bottle of champagne there at the top waiting for us, we needed it!
      Read a report the other day that old men who live in walk up apartments live longer and are fitter…

    Reminds me of a rental I had in Barcelona many years ago. 6th floor, with gradually narrowing stairs, the last set, up to the rented flat, was quite narrow and had to carry the suitcase behind me while going up. Thankfully I was fitter back then than now… I can definitely see how people live longer trekking up and down this every day.

    Awesome! I started laughing until I remember that day when after a week vacation in South Africa I had a terrible overnight flight, where I got no sleep, sat on a jumpseat for over 10 hours, then got to the parking lot in Malpensa (Milan) airport and seeking clueless my car…I suddenly remembered that I had parked it at Linate airport….only 70 miles away….ooops! Wrong airport!

    Well that’s not a climb to do every day in high heels – food shopping must be a nightmare
