This is my current itinerary.  It will most definitely change as the time of my departure draws closer.  If you have any suggestions as to how I may improve this schedule of events, please e-mail me.  I'd be happy to listen to anybody's advice.

Okay, so the itinerary is just about completely wrong.  I'm leaving it alone and leaving the Journal to show what really happened.  Let this be a warning to all of you that even the greatest of plans can go awry!  Just kidding.

bulletOctober 11 Leave Dulles airport at 7:30 PM.   Read half of a Tom Robbins novel.  Go to sleep.
bulletOctober 12 Arrive Charles De Gaul airport at 8:45 am.   Hopefully check in to my hotel (Hotel Arc de Triumph Etoile on rue de l'Etoile *see map on photos page*) by noon.   Head down to Ile De La Cite.  Spend some time in Notre Dame and then cruise over to Memorial De La Deportation.  From there I'll be heading to Ile St. Louis for a little while.  I'll be trekking towards the Latin Quarter next to take in the sights at the Cluny Museum, Place St. Michel, and the Metropolitain train stop.  My feet will next be taking me to Sainte Chapelle, Palais Du Cite, Conciergerie, and Pont Neuf.  Before heading back to make plans for the evening, I'll most likely stop for dinner at the Samaritaine Department Store...and also get a good look at Paris from the 10th floor.
bulletOctober 13 Versailles in the morning.  Most likely Arc De Triumph, Eiffel Tower, Hotel des Invalides, Musee d'Orsay, and Rodin Museum in the afternoon.
bulletOctober 14 Probably Montemartre, Sacre Coeur, Bastille, Marais.  I have yet to figure out the logistics of getting to all of these places.
bulletOctober 15 TBD in the morning.  I have to be in Behoust ( small town about 50km southwest of Paris) by 4:30 PM.  From this point on, I'll be on company time.  I still haven't figured out exactly what I'll be doing there, but I'll be sure to post that information as soon as I find out.
bulletOctober 16 On company time.
bulletOctober 17 On company time.
bulletOctober 18 On company time until 10:00 AM.  Leave Charles De Gaul airport at 1:10 PM.  Arrive Dulles Airport 3:30 PM.  Damn that return flight is short!
