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?

There are other countries up in that area that speak English. ;-) Norway and Denmark and the rest of Scandanavia are reportedly very nice, friendly, and they-speak-English-there places to visit.

But they require planes to get there, right?

I have no idea? You could take a boat, I guess. Or TARDIS. ;-)

I'll take the train to Cardiff and then hop on the TARDIS!

You can Ferry to France or Holland, I know that much. If you go from Scotland, I think you can ferry to Scandinavia.
