Bags not quite packed and I'm not quite ready to go, but I bit the bullet and am finally getting to Europe after canceling several planned trips during my college years. I'll be in France for three weeks in July. My main goal is to eat cheese, drink wine, read, and visit some holy sites, but mostly eat cheese and drink wine.
I'm hitting up some of the standards: Lourdes, Paris, D-Day beaches, etc, seeing that I am neither versed in the language or know much about the country I am hoping that some of y'all might be willing to offer some suggestions on places to go, food to eat, and things to see.
I do hope to see St. Bernadette body. A coworker is asking for me to bring back one of her finger nail clippings, apparently they are still growing. All I have to do is figure out how to say, "Excuse me, can you tell when I can find St. Bernadette uncorrupted body, so that I might procure one of her fingernails, which I hear are still being clipped because her nails are still growing even after 120 years after her death?" If you can help me with this phrase, I'd be in your debt.
I also am a fan of St. Louis de Montfort, so I need to figure out where he is located.
Any assistance would be great.
