Having always been a somewhat planner I did not pay too much attention to detail for this trip. However, modern commitment being what it is, plans need to be made. So basic Italian lessons have been ongoing for weeks now and I can confidently ask "what is that in Italiano" and 'what is you name". Fantastic progress!
Currently plotting to hijack the paris time for an indulgence in Hemingway's Paris; will try to manipulate this with the mandatory visits to the Louvre, etc.
Paradoxically, I did not want to go anywhere near Paris originally, but the Bride insisted and now I have a feel for the idea I am trying to slot in as much time as possible in the "City of Love". But.... I am not going to sacrifice Italian time for that cause; South of France will have to suffer. So maybe 3/4 days in Provence and the wankers Coast (Nice, Monte Carlo) and then off!
Currently the biggest worry is leaving the Sunnie in a near heat-wave to fly into snow-thaw; the shock will be substantial.
