Compensating Deployment with Paris

We received official word that my husband will be deploying in the near future... boo...

So starting Monday he is on leave and we are taking a vacation to Paris for 4 days and 3 nights... yay!


Just a word of advice to others... When planning a trip to a popular tourist location during prime "spring break season" try to book a hotel more than a week in an advance.  We didn't have much of a choice since we didn't know that he was deploying, or that we were going on leave, until about 4 days ago.  But because it was so last minute we are stuck with a hotel that wouldn't have been my first choice and is located 3 miles away from the city center.

Luckily, Paris is known for their public transportation and we'll be able to hop on the metro and get into the city with (hopefully) little to no problem...

Another problem with going on vacation... finding someone to look after the animals.  I guess it comes with the territory of owning a pet but it always seems like a hassle trying to find someone to watch Mandi for a few days if we go out of town. 

So just a warning, I'm going to be MIA from Wednesday to Saturday of next week but I'll be back full force afterwards to fill all of you in and share some great pictures!
