I fully expected that I would be putting together this week’s Weekend Links from the US, but American Airlines had other plans for us. Yesterday was…a lot. Truly something I’ve never experienced on a travel day before, but it was a great learning experience. I now have strong opinions on airport hotels, the importance of using a car service, and the benefits of splurging on VIP departure assistance that I will share with my clients. We are now on the plane, hopefully about to push back very shortly! Some of my favorites from Weekend Links Week 27 include an overview of the current situation in France, a list of great day trip options from Paris, and a foodie trip to the South of France with great tips. Enjoy!
