Bye bye Paris!


That's it, after 2 weeks vacation in Paris, I have to go... It's been wonderful, I hope you all received my postcard and, who knows, I may send you another one from the South (which I doubt, because apparently, where I'm going there is no Internet access - how am I going to survive?! Don't worry I won't be away very long, I just need to "recharge my batteries" as we say in French (recharger mes batteries). Of course, as usual, there is no program interruption, there will still be a new photo every day on PDP. Be good while I'm way ;-)

  1. Did you have a photo-snapping passenger on the back of your scooter to take this cool shot? Emjoy the rest of your vacances, Eric!

  2. Or you could "enjoy" them! Hope you return with batteries well-charged. Is that really the expression in French? thought a battery was a "pile" and a "batterie" was a set of drums.

  4. "Batterie:" same word for the set of drums, and also for the little Duracell thingy with a plus on one end and a minus on the other ;)

  5. Fantastic shot, Eric! Love it. Enjoy your rest, do. Have a great time and know that we'll keep the place in order while you're gone lol. Good thing Guille's away really, she'd have had us partying and moving all the furniture. LOL

  6. Oh, I don't know, Lynn. Maybe we could have our own virtual party anyway, just like we did when they had that "picnic" in Paris, remember? ;) I crashed my computer leaving all these comments but it was worth it ;)

  8. What fun to see you and your scooter out and about in Paris! Sounds like you had lots of fun in your own city while on vacation. I hope you were following all traffic laws and that it wasn't the long arm of the law taking this photo. Have fun down South!

  9. Enjoy the last half of your vacation! No internet access sounds like a nice idea especially since Tomate has suggested a virtual party! What you don't know won't hurt us. Okay, Tomate I'm in!

  10. Did someone say A PARTY while Eric is away? Yippee!

    Cute self-photo Eric, be safe and look all directions...

    Jeff ~ What protection are you talking about?

    Y besos a todos de Mexico... I miss you all!!

  18. Are you trying to tell us that you're heading for Lubéron on your scooter ?....
    Très bonnes vacances, bien méritées !
    Attention aux coups de soleil, et à l'effet nocif des petits apéros au pastis sur le régime ! LOL !!

  19. Awesome photo,Eric - I love it!

    Its lovely that you'll be going someplace unplugged. My batteries are always much better recharged in those places (and even tho my mind tells me I'm missing all sorts of vital info, it always turns out that none of it really is).

    I'm going to be a bad influence: Cats away; PDP mice should play!!! ; }

  23. Bon vacance! Have a wonderful time in the lovely south!

  24. Bonnes vacances, Eric ! Reposes toi bien !

    Alexa, the difference between "une batterie" and "une pile" is that you can recharge la batterie when it's empty, while la pile must thrown away (sorry: recycled!).
    You find "batteries" in your car, mobile phone, laptop, "piles" in flashight or games...

  25. Adorable and à propos self-portrait. Next time, rent a place with wifi. We need our little internet fixes when on vacation too. Relax, put your feet up, enjoy the scenery, the food, l'heure de l'apéro, a good book and some good company (we hope)!

  26. lol Jeff!

    Tomate that's a fab idea. Eric will never know. Ok, so I brought some champagne to the party - it's over there on the side. Help yourselves! ;D
