You may wonder why a whole page has been devoted to a Parisian airport? Well, we did spend two days there!
Having greedily accepted Paul's offer of cheap stand-by tickets, we discovered there's no such thing as a free lunch. Particularly at Charles de Gaulle! Demand for seats was "higher than expected" and it was only thanks to a snowstorm in New York, delaying a connecting flight, that we flew out after an emotional 48 hours!
