I have confirmed that I can get enough hotel points to do a three night side trip.

I'm very tempted by Paris, but I don't speak French and I'm worried about getting around the city. I'd hate to be that awful American who goes to a country without knowing the language and needs everyone to speak English for them. I'm also worried about the anti-semitism in France, both from a safety perspective and a "graffiti swastikas do not make for a relaxing vacation" perspective. If anyone has experiences that they would be willing to share, I'd be very grateful.

Of course, there are lots of other options within the UK, but I'm not knowledgeable about them. Again, experiences and opinions are welcome. Please?

If you stay at a decent hotel in Paris, speaking English is part of the concierge's job. At least enough to get you to tourist traps, food, and the bathroom ;p

Everyone should go to Paris at least once if they have the opportunity.

I'd be at the Hilton, so there should be a decent concierge.

Also? I love that Captain Jack wants me to go to Cardiff!

LOL, yes he does. That might be because I wasn't paying much attention to my log-in and you're on both flists.

I figured. But it was still funny.
