Bon Voyage! Son Takes Mom to Paris on a Whirlwind European Trip

Posted on

First stop? The City of Lights!

Barton Brooks is treating his mother Carla to a European getaway after her husband, Karl, died last year. On a mission to heal her broken heart, Barton and his partner, Gregg, planned a surprise trip to take Carla on 20 outings in Europe’s biggest cities. The group landed in France this week and with suggestions from PEOPLE readers, they sampled quiche, paid a visit to the Palace of Versailles and posed for pictures in front of the Louvre.

Carla, Barton and Gregg are headed to EuroDisney next and after that, they’ll make a pitstop in Switzerland. Leave suggestions for them in the comments section below, they’d love some guidance on local musts. We’ll post a new episode of “Carla’s Comeback” every Wednesday, so be sure to follow all 20 of their adventures here!
