I thought it might be fun to share some statistics from our trip to France. We arrived in Paris on the morning of December 20th and left the morning of December 29th. We stayed in 5 hotels: 4 in Paris and 1 in Bayeux.

We spent approximately €10.50 to patronize the toilettes in France. FYI to fellow travelers, make sure you have some spare change handy; the toilettes costs as much as €1.50 per visit. On a positive note, they are very clean.
We visited several tourist attractions in Paris including Notre-Dame Cathedral, the Louvre, the Eiffel Tower, Champs-Elysées, Arc de Triomphe, Pantheon, and Saint Michael statue.
In Bayeux we perused the Tapestry, MAHB, the Cathedral, Battle of Normandy Memorial Museum, and British Military Cemetery. We also took a short trip to the D-Day beaches – Omaha beach, Pointe Du Hoc, and the American Cemetery.
We also had some tasty French foods – baguettes, macarons, assorted cheeses, chocolate, ice-cream, crepes, coffee, croquet mousier, quiche, onion soup, and so many other yummy treats. Did I mention macarons? They were delicious!
