We took a weekend trip to Paris from Berlin in 1982, traveling the Berlin Duty Train from West Berlin to Frankfurt all night, a bus to Paris the next day, two nights in Paris, a bus ride back to Frankfurt, and another nighttime train trip back to Berlin.
I was about six weeks pregnant. I remember feeling sick and exhausted the entire weekend, and while surrounded by the best in French cuisine all I was craving was an America hot dog!
We had a Kodak pocket Instamatic camera – the kind with 110 film. (Google “Kodak 110 film camera images” for a trip back in time!) The only photo that survived to be scanned is this typical tourist shot of the Eiffel Tower.
Maybe someday I’ll get back to Paris to experience it under better circumstances?
