I am giddy with excitement right now - In just 5 1/2 hours I will be leaving to pick up 2 dear friends from the airport!! They have flown all the way to little o' Switzerland to see me and travel around. I swear I'm getting more visitors in the next few months than the whole time I lived in Iowa! Wonder why.
We are going to be traveling to Paris and probably Rome...can't wait to play touristy photography!!
Do you have an recommendations for either place?

Oh wow. Are you taking the TGV? I used to hop on the TGV in Lausanne and after a mere five hours: voila, I found myself in Paris.
Here are a few of my favourite spots: uber-cool department store colette http://www.colette.fr/
brunch at Le Fumoir (which is close to the Louvre and colette) http://www.lefumoir.com/Home.html
and of course, eating maccarons at Laduree on the Champs-Elysee
For walking around and gazing at stuff in little boutiques, go to the quartiers Le Marrais and St Germain des Pres.

Now I want to go toooooo!! :) Have lots of fun! x D

Wow I was going to suggest exactly like Metropolitan Mum to go to the Marrais ( great for shopping and vintage stuff! ) and St Germain des Pres is also a nice place. I'd go to the Luxembourg Parc, which is beautiful.
Have a nice time !
