London and Paris -- A Trip Recap

We're back from our vacation to London and Paris. Actually, we got back last Sunday -- it has taken me that long to do some writing and also go through the 1200 or so pictures that I took on the vacation. In fact, I still have a number of posts in draft form, but I wanted to at least get this little summary post up before too much time passes.

Let me start you off with a slide show of the some of the pictures we took:

In summary, we had a great time spending 4 days in London, England and then heading over to Paris, France for 4 full days before heading back to Los Angeles on the 5th day. Paris was expensive, but London was really expensive -- but, beyond that the weather is better than you can usually expect that time of year. In fact, we had several days of partly cloudy skies with sunshine and temperatures approach the high 50's!

Here is a quick recap on our trip. (Links will be filled in as I complete the posts)
February 23rd - Arrival in London, England
February 24th - Touring around London, WiFi connections
February 25th - Continue our touring
February 26th - Enjoy the weather, the London Eye, Paddington Station, and missing the Eurostar

February 28th - Visiting the D-Day beaches in Normandy
February 29th - Mussee d'Orsay, L'Open Tour, Night Cruise
