Hi Sensoryfoodie. I saw that you mentioned that you were traveling to France at some point and I wanted to let you know that we went thru VRBO to find the apartment that we stayed in for both weeks that we were there. They are an extremely easy site to find places for rent at different prices and the place we stayed was convenient to the metro, clean and in a very safe area. We also went thru VRBO when we went to Rome last year and we were able to find a very clean studio apartment for the 5 days that we stayed there. I highly recommend looking for a studio apartment which is much cheaper than a hotel. The apartment we stayed in in Paris was a 1 bedroom with a full bath and a full kitchen and living area. Very very nice.
I am in transition. I just moved from the South, where I have been a program director, artist, yoga teacher and workshop leader. I just got my masters in psychology. I appreciate your compliment very much.
