This is ELIN, just before she sat off for PARIS!

A group of 8 friends, who for the last 25 years have been meeting once a month, are spending a long weekend in the French capital.
Elin told me that they had all saved up an amount of money towards a trip abroad. They do this once a year, or every second year.
Two of the women had arranged the trip, and Elin and the others did not know where they were off to until they reached the airport!!
I am sure they will have a good time, do lots of shopping, lots of breaks at cafes and wine bars, and just enjoy and explore the best of the city!
The two woman who organized the trip, also provided the "French outfit"!

Is this a typical way, for us Norwegian, to have a girly weekend away, or is it something many people do?

I cannot answer your question, Gunn, but the idea of this is quite quite wonderful. Shame that in Australia te only options are internal to our own country. But this still is possible ...

What a great idea. Both the surprise trip to Paris and the idea of meeting once a month for so many years.

Paris??? For a girl's weekend?!!! How fun!!! A bit far for us to go for a girl's weekend, but I have a bunch of friends who do longer girl's trips to far off and exotic spots around the world!!!
