Paris....once again!!

Yes...back from another amazing trip to Paris. This explains why I have been absent from my blog for some time now. My wonderful husband who won this trip last year...managed to win yet again this year!!! A company paid trip...yes...the best kind.
After such a great time the first time around we would never have expected to be able to do this again. How wonderful to be able to go and do it the second time at an easier pace having already managed to get in the great tourist "must sees" the first time.
This time we got to go to the Rodin Museum which wasn't open last year. Also managed the Dali Museum as well....a must see stop itself.
One highlight of this trip was that the awards dinner held on the third night was booked as a dinner cruise on the Seine on the "Yacht de Paris". event that I won't soon forget.
We were also treated to a side trip for two nights out in Bordeaux. This part of the trip included a tour and wine tasting which ended with an elegant lunch served to our group at the Chateau De Ferrand in Saint-Emilion. We then received a guided tour of the town of Saint-Emilion itself. Remarkable!!
I'm a very lucky gal indeed. I feel truely blessed.

It really does sound like the trip of a lifetime, and to win it twice, wow!! The Rodin museum I think is my favourite museum in Paris, not only do I love Rodin's sculptures, but the setting is so beautiful! So glad you were able to see it this time!

Hope you have a wonderful Christmas, stay safe and warm!!
