To all those who think airline flight benefits are so wonderful, here's the truth. For UEA we wanted to do something totally different and we fell in love with Prague. We had been planning it for 6 weeks. We were so excited to go. Usually we don't tell people where we're going, but this time we told EVERYONE and then some. And the flight looked GREAT. So we got all revved up, packed our bubble wrap to bring home FAMOUS CZECH CRYSTAL and were waiting at the airport....then SLC became Atlanta....a hell hole. To make a long story short, we didn't make it. We were so upset and depressed about it, and yes, tears were shed. The only flight out of SLC that was open was Paris.....yes I know, I know. What a painful substitute. We were already packed, vacationed from work and school, so we went for it. We were so bummed on our BUSINESS class direct flight there, but once we got there, things looked up. We remembered how much we love that city. And in the first few days we still moped around saying, "we should be in Prague right now" and when we were finally over it, standing under the Eiffel Tower, we ran into this. All the european flags were out and this was the first one I saw. What a stab through the heart!
Somewhere near the Jardin de Luxembourg which we didn't get to see because it was too late. That's what makes Paris so fabulous, you don't have to be anywhere famous to see beauty. It's just a GORGEOUS city.
Sunset's were even more beautiful this time around. This is taken from one of our favorite areas...the Lourve.
