    Eat! That’s a long flight and I’m sure I’d be hungry!

  2. Jenny says:

    Drink some wine and eat some cheese

    Ahh, Sue, you beat me to the smart-ass remark. Mine was “find a bathroom”.

    Seriously… I’d probably head for the countryside to experience the little villages. I’ve heard that they’re very charming, much more open and friendly than Paris, although I’d save time for Paris, of course.

  4. Joy says:

    Well you smart farts, I sat in first class so I ate and went to the bathroom!

  5. Joy says:

    I’d really like to sit at an outside bistro and have a fresh croissant. I’ve heard they are sinfully good there.

    I don’t know. Most likely I’d be with some people who would have planned out 101 things to do in the first 4 hours (without checking with me). So we’d be rushing to get to something or other. I’d mostly follow along and try to get a few glimpses of the scenery along the way.

    I don’t think I’d go to France just to hang out. If I wanted to relax, I’d rather go someplace “away from people” in the USA. If I wanted to tour, I’d rather go to a less developed county where I could get in touch with traditional cultures and hopefully a bit of nature.

    ok silly you’s..I sat in economy class and believe it or not they let me eat and use the bathroom there too..LOL
    First thing Id do would be go check into my hotel, shower and get some fresh clothes on..after an 8 hour flight or so things get a bit wrinkly.

      I Took the Eurostar (the fast train @ 180 mph) on a day trip from London to Paris.
      I seen Notre Dame, the Lourve(the inverted triangle) didnt go in and see the Mona Lisa, The “Think” statue, the Eifel Tower, the bridge(tunnel) where Princess Diana was killed and other things i dont recall on a short bus tour thru Paris. I felt a little uncomfortable when i was there because i didnt know any french and the people didnt like to speak english to me although they knew it.
      What i liked most was the old building structures but that you see in most places across the pond. a lot of history.

    Good question. I think I’d hit the hot spots first, all the local cafes, and shops. But I think I’d have to go with Vicki and go unload everything in my hotel, clean up, then hit the city!

  9. Joy says:

    I can sure see I’ll have to use better words. I should have said “what in France would you really like to see?”

    • SKL says:

      I don’t know, what is there to see in France that I can’t see here? The Eiffel tower, but that’s not really that exciting to me. I don’t drink alcohol, so the wine wouldn’t really thrill me. I don’t care much for city life and I’m not a big foodie. If I were going there, I’d research to find something pleasant in the countryside. But the people I travel with would probably say “no, that’s a waste of time” because we need to have photo evidence of us doing the “standard” trip-to-france stuff.

      When I went to Madrid (alone), I found some nice parks/walking paths and there were some nice old buildings to look at and a famous art gallery. I guess I’d try for the same sort of stuff in France, if I were stuck in the city.

      • Vicki says:

        I like your idea SKL, I think seeing the country side and visiting some of the smaller villages would be the coolest.

    Take a shower, check in to the hotel and then catch a taxi and say, “Take me somewhere that tourists never go and that locals love.”
