i got the go ahead for paris around 3 pm today - eeeeeh! (i guess theoretically, i shouldn't say i'm going for sure until i'm actually there, because things can always change, but by now i've made non-refundable reservations, so i hope that means i'm going for sure... right? hehe.)
and because i need to be at the seminar at 9 am monday morning and no flights fit that schedule, i'm going to paris on sunday, which means i will get at least an afternoon of sightseeing, which will rock. yey!
i booked the flight, and i've made a reservation at the hotel du square d'Anvers paris, which was both cheap and seems nice, with a pretty central location. i'm very paranoid that something will go wrong with the reservation since i made the reservation right off that website rather than through an agency.
i have so many things to be paranoid about, but i feel more relaxed now knowing that i will arrive a day early to get a handle on things before i need to find my way to the scary seminar. i will stay in paris sunday-friday. how cool is this? i'll tell you how cool: supercool!
need to brush up on my french. i can speak a bit of french, but i don't think i'll understand what anybody says to me back, so i'm going to stick to english, but still. i aim to: snap photo's, see the eiffel tower, eat a crêpe or two, and find a supercute patisserie with those cute marie antoinette pastel-coloured tiny pastries.
seriously. so cool. :D and scary! but cool. :D
ok. i go to bed now and dream of strange french sheep. cin cin!
