Weekend Freebies

I’m back :-) And exhausted. Even though Paris is basically right around the corner (we live on the French border and Paris is only a 4hour drive), we go there way to seldom. And going there for a 24h roundtrip is too short. There is so much to do and see. This wasn’t my first trip to Paris (nor will it be my last), so I saw some things known and some unknown. This time we took a boot trip down the Seine which was not only beautiful, but also very relaxing. And I went down into the catacombs for the first time. Now that was an extraordinary experience. I don’t even know how to describe it. I have seen quite many cemeteries in my life (I make a point to visit one in each town I travel too), but nothing was like this. The atmosphere was truly eerie, and it is huge. You have the feeling you are walking forever past millions and millions of bones. Take a glimpse for yourself at wikipedia.

Here are the freebies I found today. There are a bunch more out there, but since I got a whole 2 hours of sleep after my 24hour Paris trip to go to my only cousin’s girl’s baptism today, I am dead on my feet by now. If I don’t catch some Zs now, I won’t be able to get my sorry ass out of bed tomorrow. I will be back with more tomorrow.

Wow! I had never even heard of that! Thanks so much for all the links. Have a great day!

I'd never heard of the catacombs either. Thanks for the Wikipedia link. I think it's great that you tell a little about your life before you share the freebies - it's so interesting. Thanks again for all that you do. Now go get some sleep!

Thanks for the great freebies! I have been to the catacombs in Paris and you're right- they're completely mind-boggling. Centuries of people in a mass grave, but beautifully put together (if bones can be beautiful!).

OMG I'm sooooo jealous that Paris is right around the corner for you! A 4 hour drive takes me to....Wyoming???? lol Pretty...but not even close to the same thing. haha

Glad you had fun on your trip! I love it when you add details about you to your blog posts. It's fun to catch a glimpse of who you are. :)

Thanks so much for posting my sampler. Appreciate! :)

Sounds like you had fun on your trip! I enjoyed learning about the Catacombs...I'd heard of them but never really knew what they were! Get some rest :o)
