Hi Marie--just a quick update. We had a great train ride to Avignon, and picked up our car--a very nice, brand new Citroen. Drove to the little country hotel overlooking les Alpilles and the olive trees, getting lost a couple of times, but arrived with no problem. What a beautiful place! We have the Gaudet room, and love the little patio off to the side away from all the other rooms. After a swim in the pool, we had dinner--truly gourmet! A nice bottle of rouge; Cyndy had sea bass and I had a shank of lamb. Outstanding! This chef knows how to cook! We can't wait for our cooking lesson tomorrow. Today after breakfast we're going exploring in Aix de Provence. Then out to a nice little restaurant nearby tonight. Any recommendations for places in St. Remy? Thank you again. We are singing your praises over and over. Wish you could join us for dinner! Much love, Blair and Cyndy Sent from Blair's iPad

Paris again - yes Lionel and Dominique at the wine cellar are great, and yes we did buy some vintage wines! They are incredible! What wonderful people. We spent four hours with them today, and believe we earned a bachelor's degree in wine science. We will never forget them. We bought six bottles to take with us, and promised to stay in touch. Thank you so much for sending us to them. A big miracle today I must tell you about. After leaving Lionel and Dominique, we took a cab back to the hotel--or at least two blocks from it. I paid the driver, and we started back to the hotel. Two blocks away, I suddenly realized that my wallet was not in my pocket, including all my cash, cards, driver's license, etc. I was mortified--I had apparently left it on the back seat of the cab. I called Dominique at the wine cellar. There was no way they could trace the taxi, since they had called a taxi stand. My wallet was gone forever, and I couldn't imagine all the trouble we would go through. I went to the people at the desk at our hotel. They couldn't have been nicer--calling all over Paris to put out the word. In the meantime, Cyndy called me on my mobile. She said, "I have your wallet!" Something had led her to walk back down the street to the "scene of the crime," just to see if I had dropped the wallet on the street or something. As she walked, a man came toward her with my wallet in his hands, open to my photo. It was the taxi driver! I don't know how he realized that the wallet was in his taxi, but he had doubled back and was looking for us. This was the huge city of Paris!!!! Experiences like this teach us never to take anything for granted. We call it a "God moment." Can you believe it? I am so, so relieved, I can't tell you. Thank you again for your friendship and good help. Off to Provence tomorrow--you know I'll take special care of my wallet--and Cyndy! Lots of love, Blair Sent from Blair's iPad

Marie, - Paris calling - our vacation is wonderful! We were upgraded to one of the two suites at our hotel in central Paris. It's just beautiful, and we are having an outstanding time. Thank you so much! Now we are looking forward to our wine tasting today--a nice 40 minute walk. You are wonderful! Thank you for all your great help. Much love, Blair and Cyndy Sent from Blair's iPad

Marie - Well, we made it home! We have unpacked and have most of our clothing washed, just need to catch up on our sleep. The flight back is always long so we were 22 hours getting home. We had a wonderful time. We found everyone very friendly and helpful. I don't know how the Pariseans got such a bad reputation, but they were all great to us. Driving was easy once we got out of the Paris metro area. We actually couldn't fing our road to Troys and ended up on the Paris beltway going to Versailles. Finally found a road going east and ended up going almost all the way to Orleans before we got headed in the right direction. After that it was a breeze. We thank you so very much for escorting us around Paris. That really did help us get oriented and more comfortable with the city. The wine tasting at the 16th century wine cellar with Lionel and his wife was a highlight. Going to Versailles was easy. We got to use the RER and the metro that day. We did the Louvre, the Muse Orsay, the Eiffel Tower, Arc d'Triumph, Department stores, etc. Don't think we missed a thing! We even found Dabo and were only 20 minutes off the time we had set to meet up with Lee's brother and sister-in-law. One of her third or fourth cousins was there from Strasburg and we all went to the city hall to review the geneology information. Lee's brother had met with other family members the night before and had a great time. All of the lodging you arranged was very nice. We especially enjoyed Troyes and Colmar. If we were doing it again we would have stayed in the Colmar area more nights. Traveling by train was wonderful. The trip to Reims went by so quickly and the hotel there was only about 3 blocks from the GARE. It was raining the next day so we took a cab to the Mumm Champagne house. We really enjoyed the tour and Champagne tasting there. We came home with little pink cakes - famous in Reims! So, thank you again. All you did was very special to help us with our trip and ease Lee Ann into her 60's. Thanks, Tommy and Lee Ann - Arizona - 2nd holiday with you!
