Realities of a Dream Vacation

Planning a dream vacation is so much fun! Looking at all the hotels, the tours, the restaurants, the museums; deciding what to do when; it’s a virtual trip just doing the research!  As much fun and important as it is planning your itinerary, it’s equally as important to be aware of realities you may find on your dream vacation.

The city of Paris is serious about keeping their city clean. In an effort to reduce litter and plastic use, you can find numerous water dispensers throughout the city; even sparkling water dispensers. They’re extremely popular and used regularly by locals and tourists alike. But, public water fountains aren’t a new thing in Paris.

Confirmed – paid – done. Or, so I thought.

On the way to meet them I stop at a coffee shop and order a double shot latte at the counter. Behind me in line is Wolfgang Puck.
