So, I bought tickets to Paris...One of the discount airlines had cheap tickets available. We paid 3500 kroner (about $700) for the whole family. (That seems much cheaper in kroner than it does in dollars!) It's a really good deal! So we'll be there for a week at the end of July. And, as an added bonus, Gaute has discovered that the last leg of the Tour de France, in Paris, will be one of the days we are there! He was psyched, to put it mildly.
Finding a good deal on a hotel is proving more difficult. Rooms for 5 people are pretty much nonexistent. And getting two rooms is pretty expensive, as it's not exactly the cheapest city in the world. I'm thinking renting an apartment will be the best option. But how to know which property management places you can trust?? I'm sure I'll figure it out.
