This translates into the simple phrase: “I don’t want to leave Paris.” After 86 cities, 43 flights, and roughly 228 days on the move, we decided to spend 34 days parked in one place. We lived out of closets instead of suitcases, cooked meals for ourselves, rode the Metro and Velibs instead of airplanes. Mark had lived in Paris when he was 19 and from that moment forward he always felt at home there. Now, after our monthlong sojourn, the whole family feels the exact same way.But in the end, the road beckons and we’re packed up and on the move again. We rented a car and put Paris in our rearview mirror. Now we begin counting the days until our return.
