Many, many years ago Wayne visited Machu Picchu in the middle of a two-week business trip and thought it was so amazing that he promised to take me to visit it one day. He fulfilled that promise and we had a fantastic trip. (It was before the days of blogging, so unfortunately you'll have to wait a while for any details on that trip.)

Part of the fun of a big vacation is the planning. Over the past several months we've checked out lots of Paris travel guides from the library and surfed dozens of "things to do in Paris" websites. There's no dearth of information on the subject!
Hotel Plaza Opera, in the 9th Arrondissement. The room was tiny, but we expected that, and it was just part of the charm of a vacation in Paris.
It was the perfect home base for our exploration of this intriguing city and its sights, sounds, smells, and tastes.
Now that the promised trip to Paris is a memory, the next promise on the horizon is a trip to New York City. Feel free to share your best hints and tips for making that vacation fun and memorable!
