Ventura family photo

Transcript a la Paris

The Ventura family of Clayton -- Marc, Annette, Nicolas, 14, and Emily, 12 -- traveled from mid-June to the first week in July through southern France and Paris, stopping at many landmarks. Their favorite sight was the Eiffel Tower, where they took a moment to catch up on the community news in the Concord Transcript. They had wanted to go up in the tower, but described the wait time as "enormous." They also visited the Arc de Triomphe, Emperor Napoleon's Tomb, Notre Dame Cathedral and the glassblowing facility La Verrerie de Biot.

It doesn't matter if your time away is spent across the Bay or across the country -- remember to pack the Transcript to keep up with news of the community, and then show your neighbors where you have been.
