In the summer of 2016 I am planning a trip to London and France. I am going with my parents, my sister, and my aunt. Right now we have not set a definitive date, but I am hoping for May as it will be cooler but not super cold and not super hot according to normal trends. People with MG do not do well in extreme conditions.
Right now I am looking into all the blogs and tips I can get about both locations. I am not new to traveling but I am new to traveling overseas. I have been out of the country but only on cruises so it will be new to fly out and stay in another country for a week.
I will actually have to master jet lag for once, really pay attention to laws and rules, and though I know French people know English I want to really be away from the Touristy areas so I need to brush up on my French. I am nowhere near as great as I use to be as I cannot ‘hear’ it as fast as I can write it and speak it but I will try to get back to it. You never know when you will need to ask a local something because they pretend NOT to know English yet you know from your high school French classes it is a requirement of learn the language of the neighboring countries (in school) around them and they bordered by 6 countries, LOL.
I also want to take a flight that will take a stop in another country for about 8 hours or so, this way I can see another country for a few hours and eat foreign food, see some sights, and take some pictures. Of course I would plan this beforehand so that it would only be 4-5 hours of playtime, giving me plenty of time to get in and out of the airport so that I do not miss my connecting flight.
I am already creating a list of all the sights I want to see! Some of them are cheesy and touristy and some of them are off the beaten path such as the restaurants. That’s the only way to get the most authentic foods and shops! I am super excited. I’m crossing off so many things off my bucket list this year coming up! I’m going to make it happen! I have to start lining up some guides…any takers? LOL!
