« Back to France 2005


Though we left Richmond on the afternoon of June 1, the honeymoon really didn't begin until the afternoon of June 3 when we shook off our travel lag and began exploring the streets of Avignon. Traveling from our house to our hotel in Avignon took 34 hours -- a four hour drive to Baltimore Washington International Airport, a lot of sitting in said airport, flight time to Reyjavik and a brief layover in Iceland, flight time to Paris, a short trip to the nearby TGV (high-speed rail station), a four hour wait for the train, the train trip itself and a cab drive from Avignon TGV. Here's Nikole, a scant 24 hours into our journey.
