Paris Trip Notes – Day minus 1

Sun 10-1Mon 10-2Tue 10-3Wed 10-4Thu 10-5Fri 10-6

Today, is September 30th, 2017.  T-minus 16 Hours and counting until I fly to Paris, France.  Not much planning or packing left to do.  I feel fortunate to be able to make the trip.  I’ll be visiting colleagues from MongoDB’s Paris Office and will be lending a hand with some customer meetings for the week.

I thought it might be interesting to share details of the trip with my friends and family through this blog… so here’s the plan:

Each day – I’ll be in France for 5 days, I’ll create a blog post and an accompanying video.  Each post will have some vocabulary words I’m trying to learn, some facts I’m trying to learn about France, a photo or two and a bit about the plan for the day and what I’ve experienced.

Like what you see?  Let me know in the comments – or on social media.  Want to know something about Paris, France – or want me to take a photo… let me know!

Word(s) of the day:

Excusez-moi, où est ___? Excuse me, where is ___? Definitely will have a need to find my way around… I’m thinking this one will pay off quickly.
Où se trouvent les toilettes?Where is the bathroom?And what would be more important that finding a restroom?


France is the world’s most popular tourist destination – some 83.7 million visitors arrived in France, according to the World Tourism Organization report published in 2014, making it the world’s most-visited country.

Photo of the Day

Ok – not a photo I took – but it’s a google street view of the MongoDB office in Paris.  See you in about 24 hours.
