After our financially educational tour of St. Tropez, I was ready and looking forward to returning to the normal world that is Paris…where expensive food was mandatory and worth every penny.I would much rather prefer to pay 100 Euros for a plate of delicious pasta and a glass of wine in St. Germain then a pizza margarita on the boardwalk in St. Tropez.We arrived via train and checked into our home for the next ten days…the fantastic George Sand Hotel on Rue Mathurins.This hotel was were the majority of our wedding guests stayed (including ourselves), so this was a return…

I’m back in the world of blogging…woo hoo! Can’t you just feel the excitement and exhilaration?? Say yes! At least pretend… Well, I left the comfort of the Miami last Thursday to arrive in Zurich Friday morning to connect to Nice that same day to arrive and catch a bus to St. Tropez….oy vey! The traveling was not the best….I had a lovely business class seat en route to Zurich, and just as I was getting ready to order my first class of champagne, the rest of the people on board my flight got on. It is the only time…

So, I made a point to write to you all today.I’m back in Miami, working a new gig and overall wondering why the humidity is soooo cruel to my hair. You know, the usual stuff.Not much has changed, although anytime you leave for over a week, the narcissistic person inside all of us insists that EVERYTHING has changed in our absence.But alas, life goes on without us.I returned home…

Well, I leave tomorrow…who would have thunk that I could survive for two months far away from my comfort zone…not I, said Pie (inside joke). And I have to say that this time around, I actually (dare I say it) liked Zurich. Once I started wondering around, I actually grew to really appreciate the city, the art it holds and the secret little pubs hidden in Old Town. Zurich is basically the “downtown” of Switzerland and the most modern…but even here, I couldn’t help by laugh at the old-fashioned way of life. There are a lot of things that I…
