Off to Biarritz for Vacation from Paris!

Ok, I lied.

We're not really spending 11 weeks in Paris. But "73 days in Paris and 4 days in Biarritz" is a rather awkward title for a blog and www.73daysinparisand4daysinbiarritz.com is an even worse domain name.

I had never heard of Biarritz before coming to Paris.

I have since learned it is the surfing capital of Europe. I bet you didn't even know Europe had a surfing capital.

Biarritz is located all the way down in the southwest corner of France.

There are also 10 golf courses within an 18 mile radius although I doubt I will pay to rent clubs as well as pay the green fees.

My sister has rented a villa on the beach. They arrived by car yesterday after leaving Paris before the Technoparade began (fortunately!). We will be returning Thursday night.

Should be fun.
