It was about this very same time in June 1998 when I visited Northern France and Paris. You could say it was an enlightening time for me- mainly vacationing by myself with a group- but ultimately being alone in another country.
I love this photo- it was so sunny there but the darkest, black clouds hung above that Chateau, which we did visit!
Here's little me under the Eiffel Tower. (I'm in black & white.)
I only have fond memories of France. I hadn't even met hubby yet here, but by the very next year I was back in Paris with him on our honeymoon!
