12 Hours in London

If you’re someone like me who doesn’t live on the road, it’s important to maximize your travel experiences. I love taking advantages of international layovers to spend a day in “bonus” city, like Paris or Amsterdam. This Spring I finally got to see London with a day-long romp through this fantastic capital.  It turned out to be plenty of time to see the highlights and get the flavor of this historic city.

A Seven Hour Lay-over in Paris

When I first downloaded my photos from Turkey, I was incredibly confused by the first dozen pictures.  And then I remembered, we’d spent the afternoon in Paris!  Our flights to Turkey included a 7 hour lay-over in Paris.  I tried with my best French to ask if we could be switched to an earlier flight to Istanbul but no luck.  So with seven hours in Charles de Gaulle and a need to keep jet lag at bay, what did we do?  Power up on airport cappuccinos and head into Paris!
