Paris near the Eiffel Tower
Hard to believe our month was nearly over. We packed up our tent for the last time in France . . . literally. We've never camped in France again. We rent gites or stay in logis and the occasional hotel. You don't have to pack all your camping gear; you can stay in the country and have the comforts of home and you meet the same wonderful people who live in the countryside. Gites and logis are a treasured part of France for us.
The Goat by Picasso
We drove to Paris and checked into our hotel. Then we took the Metro to the Picasso Museum since it would be closed the next day. What a wonderful experience! We spent our last few days visiting museums and discovered the Batobus and the Luxembourg Gardens. Needless to say, we've been back to Paris many times. There is always something new to see and plenty you want to revisit.
The Louvre Pyramid by Pei
It had to end, but we had a great time and learned a lot. We also were completely addicted to France and love the French people who have been unfailingly kind and helpful. We have also visited places we didn't see the first time. We missed Mont St. Michel, the D-Day beaches, Brittany, Normandy and the entire northeast. There is always a reason to return!
