"Everyone knows the more you wear pearls, little by little they become real....And isn't it the same with memories?" - The Madwoman of Chaillot

Plans have changed a bit for the rest - we go from Atherstone directly to Wroclaw Poland but are taking the chance to go on a City Night Line Train from Paris to Berlin - which will be fun. So its Britrail to London, Chunnel train to Paris, Paris to Berlin and then the next morning Berlin to Wroclaw... we hope to have time to explore the area a little and see the towns where my great grandfather's parents were born, then Bill will work at 3M Monday Tuesday and Wednesday. Thursday its hop back on a train to Berlin, night train to Paris.

We will end up with one night near the Charles De Gaulle airport - tried to stay at the same place - Hotel Le Prieure, an old rectory of the nearby church in Ermenonville - where we stayed in 1993 but although it was in business as recently as 2009, we can't find that it is still in business so chose instead the Chateau d'Ermenonville, a beautiful setting in a castle dating back to the 1400's in a parklike grounds by a lake. But just 20 minutes from the Paris airport.
