      Still in Paris lockdown

      May 23 in France ⋅ 🌧 63 °F

      Got a call this morning saying they will be here tomorrow morning between 8:00am and 9:00am to do a throat swab. Supposedly within an hour or so we should have the verdict. Dum de de dum…Our immediate future hangs on the tip of a Q-tip. I am still battling my sinus infection but pressure and pain has lessened but still going through a box of tissues and taking some interesting cough syrup they bought for me. We should have been visiting Versailles today. Boo hoo. But as it turns out being sick has changed my perspective on my trip. Except for 2007 when I had a collapsed vertebra, I have always been very healthy during all my travels. So I shan’t weep and realize how blessed I’ve been and continue to be and look forward to going home and getting well.
      I decided to explore my view and discovered a nice little shrub rose bush outside my window. I’ve been watching the BBC’s coverage of the Chelsea Flower Show so even though this little bush wouldn’t make it into that august event, it is appreciated by me. So until tomorrow, prisoner 174 (room number) signing off.

      Gargle gargle gargle then rise your nose with warm water every so often. Cute flower. Probably has never been so appreciated ❤️

      Jeannette, I just found out you have covid. So very sorry to hear this. Praying you and Joseph both test negative today and can go home. There's no place like home!

      Boring room

      May 22 in France ⋅ ☁️ 70 °F

      So here we are in our second day of isolation in the most boring room in Paris. There is literally a village of modern hotels built near the Charles de Gaulle Airport in Paris. Two things make it bearable, the BBC which is the only English language game in town and the fact that I’m so miserable with this sinus infection that rest is all I want to do. I spoke with a Viking representative this afternoon and to boil down all that she said is that we are in the Bastille until they say otherwise. So we wait until Tuesday to be tested again to learn our fate. Joseph is hanging in there reading mostly and trying not to say that his wife is an idiot for getting Covid. If he tests negative on Tuesday and I don’t he will head home. I truly hope he doesn’t get this worthless omicron. I received many concerning messages and thank you all. Please keep us in your prayers and I’ll keep you posted.Read more

      Of the 2 sets of neighbors that did not complete their trip, the unaffected one went home right away. based on these sad experiences, that is what we plan to do if we get bit by the bug..

      Nancy and I have been walking back and forth between the door and the window. Not at the same time. Yesterday I had 5,500 steps and Nancy exceeded 8,000 (according to Fitbit).

      Wir sind gelandet! We did it!!!!

      July 2 in France ⋅ 🌙 14 °C

      Nach einem doch recht erstaunlich schnellem Flug, stehen wir jetzt auf dem Rollfeld und warten bis die anderen Passagiere es mal auf die Kette kriegen auszusteigen 🙄

      Aber hey, WIR SIND IN PARIS!!!!!!

      Es geht los!

      April 4, 2021 in France ⋅ ☀️ 3 °C

      Die Reise kann beginnen! Die Fahrräder sind Dank der großartigen Hilfe von Adrians Vater in den ziemlich kleinen Kartons (was an Zauberei grenzt), alle Sachen sind (hoffentlich) gut verpackt und Air France hat sie auch anstandslos mitgenommen. Wir haben gerade einen Zwischenstopp in Paris und damit Zeit, uns innerlich ein wenig auf die Reise vorzubereiten.
      In den aktuellen Zeiten zu reisen, fühlt sich schon ziemlich falsch an. Aber wann haben wir schon wieder die Chance, gemeinsam drei Monate unterwegs zu sein? Ideal ist es auf jeden Fall nicht, auch wenn wir uns ja zumindest eine kontaktarme Fortbewegungsart ausgesucht haben. 🚴‍♀️🚴‍♂️

      Transit time

      January 1 in France ⋅ ⛅ 12 °C

      Our transit stop is but a mere hour later in Paris. Thanks Covid🙄 We have roughly four hours to pass until we continue our trip to San José. However, once we pass through passport control and arrive at our gate, the first hour is almost over already. Time for some sandwich and rice bowl, yum!😋Read more

      Amsterdam - Paris

      April 25 in France ⋅ ⛅ 11 °C

      Yesterday we traveld from Amsterdam Schiphol toward Paris airport.

      We stayed at the Mercure hotel in the airport where at least I (Nina) passed out straight..😴

      The alarm went off way to fast for our early breakfast and transfer back to the terminal. In Paris the airport is so big you need metro/trains to get to the right terminal/gate etc. At least we are traveling sky priority so it saved us a lot of time in both airports and less stress.

      Now we are waiting for the plane to take off, 8 hour flight to Havana. ✈️🌞

      Easy Access..

      November 1, 2021 in France ⋅ ⛅ 46 °F

      Although there are other options to Niamey from the West.. the easiest and most convenient option seems to be from Charles de Gaulle. An Air France 1030 departure from CDG puts you in Niamey in under 6hrs.. just in time to maybe catch a Niger sunset.Read more

      The hard luck little town of Viviers

      May 21 in France ⋅ ⛅ 66 °F

      The little ancient town of Viviers is known in France as the town most flooded. It is also, as it turns out, the last place Joseph and I will visit on our trip. But more about that later. Viviers has the bad luck to be on a low point of the river Rhône. This wild river that is now partially tamed by a series of dams and locks, occasionally is the victim of “controlled” water release. In order to save other communities up and below stream, water is released during wet years sometimes twice a year. The town is given about a two hour warning so that people can run and move their cars up hill. The water can come shoulder high and little boats come out for the people to be able to get around. Each time this happens it takes a couple of months to clean up. So come this winter if you hear about severe flooding in parts of France, chances are Viviers is mentioned. Also, for whatever reason, the Nazis took a particular delight in causing atrocities here during the war, especially to those who hid Jews from being rounded up. You will see some little arches between buildings. That is not for decoration but to keep the building from collapsing in on one another especially when foundations are compromised by flooding. Each year the townspeople are assessed a tax and every few years that money is used to restore one of the buildings. Many people wonder why the townspeople just don’t abandon this place of hardships but if you visit there you will meet a stubborn people who are very attached to their family history and are willing to fight for the place they live in and love. They are attached to their castle cathedral and all who live there.
      After visiting Viviers we came back to the boat and got a call to our stateroom that Jeannette had tested positive for Covid. So as of that moment we were considered “unclean” as people were called in ancient times. We were not the only ones in this most unhappy of predicaments. Come the following morning after everyone else had left the boat for excursions in Toulon, the unlucky 14 walked the plank for the last time to a group of private taxis and were whisked away on a six hour journey to the Charles de Gaulle airport to be sequestered in the Marriott hotel. We will remain there until we test negative and then unceremoniously and gently we will be kicked out of France. No ands, ifs or buts. So our trip ends with a whimper instead of a victorious drum beat. Stay tuned, I plan to report some on our lament. And thanks for following along with our first and only leg of our adventure.

      Paris Flughafen

      April 11 in France ⋅ ☁️ 17 °C

      Na ja. So toll ist der auch nicht. Die ganzen Designer sind zwar da. Aber wie viele Gucci-Täschchen braucht die Welt?

      Ein Gläschen Champagner hatten wir uns dann doch genehmigt. Ist ja auch Urlaub.

      Tests etc. muss man nicht mehr vorzeigen, wenn man schon einen Flug hinter sich hat.
