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 didn't speak a word of French, got lost, but had a decent time anyway. Don't worry about the anti-Semitism; you'll probably not notice any more than you would in NYC. If you start to worry about that, and use the US news to guide you, you'll never go anywhere.

Have fun! If you go to Wales and waant a hike, go to the Brecon Beacons.

But there are cannibals there!

In the Beacons? Nah -- didn't the guys get rid of them? I could've sworn Gwen & co. took care of the whole lot.

My entire frame of reference is that Brecon Beacons = cannibals. Are you telling me that television has lied to me?

No, no. Just that "they" took care of that little problem.
