5. What was your favorite "travel" vacation? Why?

Going to Paris for 9 days. It was wonderful. It was quite unexpected, my sisters boss gave her the trip for her Christmas present and I was lucky and tagged along with her and her husband. We had a great time. We stayed in a sweet little hotel that was hundreds of years old. We ate croissants, fruit and the best coffee for breakfast every morning Then we would go shopping in all the quaint little shops. I have never walked so much, no wonder the French are in such great shape. We visited the Eiffel Tower, Louvre Museum and Notre Dame. We took the train (and flirted a little) and visited the countryside, it was the best. We ate wonderful food, we even went to the movies. I could go on and on but I’ll have mercy on you.

6. Have you ever played tourist in your own home city/state (if international, country)? Explain.

Love your answer to number 13 of the questions for the KVVS. Gave me a giggle.
Yes, everyone in Europe walks, and walks. Americans, especially here in the west, drive cars everywhere. I know even though the Bay Area has wonderful mass transportation, it still lacks getting people to all the spots, thus cars.
