Unexpected Trip to Paris

Posted on 28 September 2010

Thanks to Erasmo Cortez

OK so my sister was returning from a business trip overseas last week. She had a quick stop in Paris to change planes but ended up with a 24 hour layover. Believe it or not, she actually called me from the airport to complain. She and her co-worker were being put up by the airline at a nice hotel next to the Eiffel Tower. I was confused. I mean, it’s basically a free trip to Paris, right?! Food and lodging paid for! Out of all the international travel she has done, she’s never actually been to Paris. Of course, it is number one on my list! I watch tons of travel shows on the channels we get through our satelite tv deals so I was glad to finally put all that knowledge to work. I gave her a quick run down on what I would do if it were me, the Eiffel Tower, the Arc de Triomphe, croissants, the Louvre, a walk on the Left Bank, the Musee d’Orsay. It’s only 24 hours so they had to cram in as much as possible. I got those two ladies whipped into shape and told them to sleep on the plane ride home. They hopped on a tour bus and saw as much as possible during the three hour tour. They had dinner at an outdoor cafe and saw the Eiffel Tower lit up at night. I’m so jealous. Just out of curiosity, what would you have done?

    Simplifying your life financially allows you to take unexpected trips, like one to Paris.

    I would have complained bitterly to the airline and after following your directions and after sleeping on my way home, upon my arrival I would contact a good lawyer to sue for a all expense paid months stay in Paris because of the pain and suffering I had experienced on my scheduked fkight home.
