Home Again, Home Again
Welcome New Subscribers! 
When our kids were little we would quote the last line of "To Market, to Market," as we arrived home from vacation - "Home again, home again, jiggity-jig."  I don't know if it helped ease the transition or not, but even today when I arrive home from traveling, this little phrase pops into my mind.  
Coming home can be bittersweet - the vacation is over; now it's time to get back to work and everyday life.  But coming home also brings you back to those you love who may not have been able to join you on your trip.  
The tour to Paris was a working vacation for me.  It was the longest I've traveled without any family members joining me.  It was definitely a new experience.  
It was a good experience, though.  I enjoyed showing my guests around my favorite European city.  I hope they learned as much from me as I did from them.  I am looking forward to taking another group in September of 2017.  
It's good to be home, but as usual, I am already planning my next trip.  I hope you are, too!

Quote of the Week - 23 September 2016

“Why do you go away? So that you can come back. So that you can see the place you came from with new eyes and extra colors. And the people there see you differently, too. Coming back to where you started is not the same as never leaving.”
― Terry Pratchett, A Hat Full of Sky

This Week's Post:

Using the Paris Museum Pass

Ms. Mae Travels tour of Paris has just ended, so I couldn’t help but write something about Paris.  As part of the tour package, I purchased Paris Museum Passes for each of the participants.  The passes can be a great way to save money if they are used wisely.  Here’s some information about the passes and how we used them on the tour.

The Paris Museum Pass is available for 2, 4, or 6 consecutive days.  I find that it’s hard to get enough value from the 2-day pass – it costs 48€, which averages to 24€ per day.  Most of the museums and attractions that are included regularly cost from 8€ to 12€, so you would have to go to more than two museums per day to have it pay off.  The 4- and 6-day passes are 62€, and 74€ respectively, which brings down the average cost per day.

Buying Train Tickets for Travel in Germany

Last week, I wrote about the benefits of buying a Eurail Pass rather than buying point-to point tickets.  I promised to follow up this week with some information about buying individual train tickets in Germany.

Why Germany?  Because the German rail system, Deutsche Bahn, and their website  is fantastic – if you know how to use it.  One of the things that I really like about the website is that it lists schedules for trains all over Europe.  Although you usually cannot buy tickets for non-German trains, you can begin to plan by finding out when the trains run.

First, though, a bit about German trains.  The trains are clean and comfortable – and I’ve only ridden in second class.  Well, except for the time my daughter and I sat in first class by accident.  Luckily, we...
