yes you do need an AC converter (and a power surge converter) we tried using the lap top without it and it was shocking us as you type ha ha. other appliances as well if you use an electric saver you need a power converter or it'll shock you, my sister got shocked by her hair dryer (not a terrible shock but not pleasant)
places to visit I absolutely loved the Monmart district it's up on the hill behind Sacre Coure, so very easy to find back in the day it used to where the "starving artists" lived (Van Gough and such) now of course it's more touristy but still a really neat part of the town with tiny streets and street artists everywhere. D'Orsee is a wonderful museum a lot Van Gough and Monet. Of course can't miss Notre Dame it is gorgeous! and I just liked wondering through the Latin Quarters it's more away from the downtown area so not as tourist oriented and you get to see Paris the way it's residents do. (Don't let the maps fool you it's a rather small city and you can walk to many places, but the public transport is also great except the Metro stops running at 1am I think, check on that so you don't get stranded) Champs Elysees is nice to walk around but I also liked St. Germain it's on the other side of the river but also lovely (except there is a starbucks there gggrrrr evil corporation) If you guys have enough time Palace of Versailles is only an hour train ride away, and definitely worth making day trip for No matter what you do you are going to love it!
You must (if the weather is good!) sit in a pavement cafe on The Champs d' Lyses (wrong spelling but its early here!) and just watch the world go by, I'm sure your wife will love the Parisian style of the women! All the main tourist haunts will be in the guide books and it is just the most wonderful vibrant city, I pass through most years on my way south in France.
Don't know anything about it!
Praying you have a safe and fun trip!
Is this an anniversary or something? We were gonna go to Guanajuato, Mexico for our 15th anniversary this year, but Henry's vet bills have eaten half our funds! :roll:
If you can't find what you need at Radio Shack, go to www.110220volts.com They will defintiely have everything you need. Paris is a great city. You can tour the city on the Seine. The boat drops you off at different points. If you plan to do the Eiffel Tower, get there early as there is a huge line! DH recommends Palace of Versailles, it's an hour by train and easy to get to. He said was great and his pics were gorgeous! If you have an iPod, you can download iJourneys: The Left Bank (www.ijourneys.com) It is a walk through the Left Bank that ends at Notre Dame. It really worth doing and very intersting. Eat at Les Deux Magots (6 Place-St-Germain-des-Pr
