    Just got word that the Eiffel Tower will be undergoing renovations when I.m across the pond -
    WAAAA!!:sad:

    hmmm -
    So we will be UNABLE to go inside the Tower.... which stinks!!

    As an alternative, our tour group will be having a walking tour all around the Eiffel Tower, etc
    then we all head out on a River cruise w/dinner on the River Seine :woohoo:


    All well - if theres one thing I have learned over the years in traveling is to always be aware to alter your plans at any given moment -


    and .....
    "What happens on a vacation stays on the internet":laughing:






    still debating on whether or not to get FP for DL Paris......
