I’ve been to London about 10 times in the past 26 years and find it one of the very best places to visit in the world. It’s loaded with history, museums, interesting walks and some of the nicest people in the world. Recently I spoke with a friend who’s worked for an airline for 30 years.
A few months ago, our family took a weekend trip from Dallas to New Orleans to meet up with some of our extended family. In the planning stages, it looked pretty simple knowing how airline employees travel. Fly standby to New Orleans on Friday afternoon using my wife’s airline-employee flight passes, get a cab to the hotel, fly home on Sunday morning. That’s not exactly how things turned out.
Paris, known as the “City of Light”, is home to over 2 million people with a metropolitan population of over 12 million. It is one of the world’s centers for culture, the arts, business, and tourism. It is actually the most visited city in the world. I’ve been there myself 5 times over the past 47 years and still only scratched the surface on the sights of Paris.
