  • [es-pree de less-ka/-iay] (idiom) A witty remark that occurs to you too late, literally on the way down the stairs. The Oxford Dictionary of Quotations defines esprit de l'escalier as, "An untranslatable phrase, the meaning of which is that one only thinks on one's way downstairs of the smart retort one might have made in the drawing room."

Claire- this all sounds wonderful! You're obviously an adventurous soul.

When you return, you'll find spring is waiting for you...or maybe summer. It was 79 yesterday!

i am so glad that you're having such a good time - and am a bit jealous of all the different experiences you're having. I can't wait to see pictures!

I think I may have to start a secret travel fund :)

Sounds like you're having a great time, Claire! Awesome.

Sounds like you're having a blast! What wonderful tales. Keep having fun and writing us about it. Thanks!
