100% Style, All the Way!

To the airport: 
The BRV (big red van) came with 2 overly considerate chauffeurs, Tim and Jaime, a fully stocked fridge and Riley came along as the cherry on top!
Piled into the BRV with the Kanes

Even Sushi!
At JFK posing with all our luggage (and Riley)
Across the Pond to Paris:  
Air France with personal touch screens and hours of movies, music, meditation exercises, real time flight screens; sleep masks, blankets and “refreshing wet towels” in flight. 

Touchdown at Orly, Paris.

“Comfort” Hotel in outskirts of Dijon: 
Let’s just say, the best part of the Chinese buffet (ugh) at the hotel, besides the location, was the gelato. Side note: Arlo and Frank conspired to have me unknowingly eat Kermit. And 2nd side note, not what I envisioned for my first meal in France. 

To the South of France: Le Renault Espace: roomy enough for our 4 bodies, 5 large suitcases, 4 carry-ons, dog crate and dog, but barely able to fit down village streets.

All along the autoroute: rest stops are stocked, pleasant and don’t sell dog food, but a ham sandwich sufficed. The cashier showed me pictures of her dog.


  1. Hehehe, Kermit, next on the menu will be Gary, the snail.

  2. So excited for you all! (Nice hat, Arlo! ��)

  3. Woowee! Yippeee! Hoooray! So glad to see that you are in France!
