It was raining yesterday, as we settled in. Our bags are unpacked, and we made a trip to the grocery store. None of us has worn a watch in years, as we’ve carried our cell phones. The modern day pocket watch, Dick Tracy in reverse. This, coupled with a 9 hour time zone change, and we have a heck of a time getting the bus arrivals to match ours at the bus stop. Not so great in the rain with bags of groceries.
This morning is spectacular, sunshine and blue skies. The girls and I have started our first school and work day. Both feel very good. The days of dragging luggage and minds sodden with jetlag made it impossible to find our routine. Now that we’ve settled a bit, we can and it feels like we are finally, truly living the planned location independent life.
I wrote a story for the main Gill Adventures site about the furious rain squall that hit us as we walked under the Eiffel Tower. Even in the back country, I’ve never seen a storm so suddenly violent I posted some Paris photos, as well.Our train from Paris was direct, thankfully, as we never figured out how to ship the luggage. We created quite a boarding bottleneck for traffic when we had to lug our extra bags up to the upper deck of the train to stow them. We were everywhere, flailing as if on ice. We’ve already started making lists in our minds of what we can ship back at the end of our ski weeks.
This afternoon we’ll explore, free of baggage and schedules.
~ We do have some photos of the 3 Valleys area from a previous trip, as well.
