For this year's vacation we finally decided to tackle France, the last big European country that we (with the exception of Mark when he was in college) had not visited. Helping make our decision was the viewing in New York during last year's vacation of the movie Monte Carlo, which got the girls really interested in seeing the Eiffel Tower. We were also benefitting from Mark's six week sabbatical he earned for staying with Adobe for ten years, so we could take a longer vacation than normal. Which is good, because plane tickets these days aren't cheap!

We decided to start in Nice so that the girls could actually see Monte Carlo, as that was what had sparked their interest, and then work up the country towards Paris.
