I'm planning a trip to Europe in 2010. This is a blog to put all my research on. It will be a place for friends to get some information and contribute information.

Musee d'Orsay If You Don't Like Paintings
The Orsay has quite a collection of priceless antiques in addition to its paintings. For those of you who aren't into art, this may be just the ticket. Some of these furniture pieces have particular interest to me since I've dabbled in woodworking.

I am planning a trip to Europe in April or May of 2010. Hopefully, it will be the trip of a lifetime, so I'm planning accordingly. I'm planning to do this trip with some close friends and family. The plan is to fly into Paris, then visit the South of France (Provence), move on to Switzerland, then through Germany, and finally winding up in Berlin. This blog will chronicle some of my research concerning places to visit and ideas for the trip. It should be a nice, central location for my travel companions to contribute their ideas, interests, and suggestions too. We'll be able to post pictures and itineraries as well. If the Lord is willing and we do make the trip, this will be a nice repository for pictures and stories about the trip.
