Our Transfer to Paris

On Wednesday we embarked on what was to be an eleven hour (including lunch and rest stops) from Germany to Paris. We were lucky in that we didn’t have to leave until 8 AM. Most of those that were heading home had to leave much earlier – some as early as 2 AM. Our route took us through Luxembourg which ticked another box on our list of countries visited. We had a lunch stop in the small French town of Metz, which was easily the highlight of the day. Metz is located in the former Lorraine region of France, so of course we had quiche lorraine. It was delicious!

The bridges in Metz were beautifully planted with colorful flowers.
The Metz Cathedral
The doors to the cathedral didn’t lack for statues!
The cathedral had beautiful stained glass windows including some by Marc Chagall.
We even had time to find the synagogue in town.

The hotel for the extension is a Marriott near the Opera Garnier. We are looking forward to revisiting some of our favorite sites in Paris.
