I have some friends who are spending their holidays in Paris this year. Paris is one of the most beautiful cities in the world any time of year but in listening to them plan for their trip, it brought me back to when I was lucky enough to go to Paris right before Christmas. It’s a perfect time of year to enjoy having the city to yourself, with no lines at the museums and plenty of seating in the cafes (for the most part). Joyeux Noel and Happy Holidays to my fellow adventure loving, thrill seeking, participants in life! Good health and happiness and best wishes for upcoming adventures in 2012!
