I can't believe that I turned down a trip to Paris with my husband. Does this sound crazy? I hope I made the right decision.
He has meetings in Paris on Oct. 17th and invited me to fly with him and stay while he meets with some CEO's of his company. I jumped at the invitation!
Then....I learned that while we would have the Saturday to fly in and explore, the Sunday was going to include him going to the airport to collect the CEO's. That would reduce it to half a day. Then, he would be moving from Paris to the outskirts of Paris twice; once on Sunday night and again on Monday night. That would take me even further of the city and all of the sights I wanted to visit.
Sadly, I turned the opportunity down, but not before I got a promise that we would make it one of our 2010 destinations. I want time to be with him in the City of Lights when he isn't running from meeting to meeting. I would love to have time to cozy up with him at an outdoor cafe and spend an hour or so sipping expresso while mentally taking the pulse of this exciting city. I'd like to go to the top of the Eiffel Tower with him--at night. I've been to Paris, I've seen the Louvre and floated down the Seine in the glass bottomed boats, but my hubby hasn't. I want to experience it with him on his first trip to Paris.
Wonder if I did the right thing?
