Day 18 - Reims (The drive to Paris *OR* The last leg)

I had to check out Reims. In the now 29 or so years that i have been going to France, I had yet to see Reims. This would ordinarily not be a problem but my dad was born there, and for my visit to have that kind of delay, is absurd. So I checked out the Cathedral (an obvious choice) and the ‘now’ house that was the ‘then’ clinic where he was actually born, and got tons of pics!

Want to see some?








And the street and former clinic where my dad was born on August 18th, 1946. We checked it out 64 years and a couple weeks later...




There you have it, after this last quick visit we made our way to Garches (outskirts of Paris) to spend a brief day and a half with my grandmother before heading back to reality!




Lots of Love
Michelle and Ryan
