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?

I haven't filled out the poll because I figure I'd be no help whatsoever:

~ My personal top three would be Glasgow (lots of galleries and indoor things for *when* it rains), Cardiff, then Edinburgh.
~ Bath is beautiful, but I wouldn't have said you could spend 3 days there if you don't have a car to get out of the city. But it's on the way to Cardiff from London, so you might be able to fit it in.
~ Also on the way from London to Cardiff is Oxford, which has got lots of, you know, history and stuff ;). I'm just saying... (what dates are you around? 'cause London's not far...)

This is going to be a great trip for you! Woot!

Cool, thank you! I'm flying in on May 28th and flying back out on June 10th. I'd love to get together, if you have time.
