Rick Steves' Best of Paris in 7 Days Tour!
Bienvenue to the first website of Carole and Marty Wendzicki.
We are excited to share highlights of our Rick Steve’s 7-Day Paris Tour -
October 2019, a retirement gift to ourselves. Marty has been a Francophile ever since taking college classes on Napoleon and the French Revolution back in the 1960's. He thought it was time to fulfill a lifetime dream:
to see the "Little Corporal" up close, with his own eyes.
We chose a Rick Steve’s Tour because it best suited our personalities.
It was like travelling with friends and family. Everything we had ever seen on PBS was informative, had depth. We wanted to immerse ourselves into that reality - to experience the art, music, food and culture of the French people
A secondary objective was to learn more about the ideals of the French Revolution: LIBERTE, EGALITE, FRATERNITE - at the place of their origin.
Not so much to experience the memory of these events in isolation,
but how these ideals find expression in the lives of the French people today.
The insights gained from taking this tour were life-changing.
You just can't be the same person you were before.
This surely is one reason to: "Keep on travelling"!
