Yesterday, we got our scrapbook from France. Along with the beautiful bound book, they sent us a video and a cd with all our photos (so I can share!!!)
We had the best time in France - We started with a flight into Paris. We took the bullet train to Lyon and toured that beautiful city. We boarded a river boat (which was a luxury cruise ship) for a river cruise down the Rhone River. It was amazing going through the locks. One drop was 75 feet (if I remember correctly).
We visited a few port cities (Vivers, Arles, Avignon) and then took the bullet train from Avignon back to Paris. The remaining few days we stayed in Paris. The highlight of the trip for me was the visit to Monet's garden. It was breathtaking.
We also had a private dinner and tour at the Palace Versailes. We ate in the Hall of Battles (it was so awesome).
Todd and I spent one extra night and had dinner at Altitude 95 atop the Eiffel Tower.
Here are some of the photos from the trip...
