Three days in Paris then two weeks to kill before Will and I have to be in Firenze, Italy on the 24th.
Here's the new itinerary: head west and south from Paris to Bordeaux. We have to decide if we will drive or take the train. The TGV is fast, it takes only three hours by train instead of the five hour drive. Raileurope.com makes the reservations.
The problem is - if we pick up the car in Bordeaux, can we drop it in Paris or LeHarve without a huge fee?
After Bordeaux we will travel by car to Northern Spain, then Madrid, Cordoba, Toledo, and Barcelona, and shoot across France to Italy.
This is all done on the fly, so the itinerary is subject to change daily.
