Time to Go

I am leaving today.  Of course it is another beautiful day here.  I would be really sad, but I am already planning to come back next year and have already worked out with the landlord here, a one month stay.  I am just not sure if it will be in the spring or in the fall, just yet.

What an amazing experience this has been.  I was so lucky to have such beautiful sunny days.  I guess it kind of sucked to get sick, because I did not do many of the things I thought I would do.  I am also kind of a lazy person, so in fact I may have never done those things anyway.  But, I will be back and then I can once again be lazy and think about doing them, and maybe even do them.

Until then though, I will carry the memories of my April in Paris with me forever.  The sun setting over my perch at the Bastille canal, watching Spanish football with a bunch of Barcelona fans, eating pate and drinking wine while watching the tourists go by on the Seine. Everything.

Tonight I will take the night train to Venice, in a second class compartment with six couchettes.  I have taken a night train before, from Venice to Budapest, but in a private cabin.  (I am trying to remember now, if we booked it that way, or if it just happened that way.) Anyway, I hope it will be an adventure, with cool people and a minimum of smells.  And when I wake up, I will be in Italy.  I am saying goodbye to one city I love, but tomorrow I will say hello to another one, one with lots of familiar faces.  Life is good.

Thanks for following along on my adventures with me.  A Bientot!

    As with your Paris adventures, I will be awaiting some of your Venice ones. How lucky / blessed you are to do all that you do!

    I’m glad you had such a fabulous month in Paris! I think I remember saying almost exactly the same thing about not doing many of the things I thought I would do at the end of our last stay in Paris. I think just hanging out and soaking it all up becomes more important than all those plans when you’re actually there.

    Hope to see you here or on Facebook during the rest of your travels, and especially in Sacramento this summer!

    See you in Santiago di Compostela in just under THREE WEEKS!
