Many of the friends I have made are from working in the hotel industry.  Recently, one of those friends was assigned to conduct training at a few hotels in Europe.  I decided to tag along for two of the locations, Paris and London.

I was determined to see as much as possible in both cities in the four days I had in each location.  I was able to book a direct flight from L.A. to Paris with a flight time of 11 hours. 

The next morning, a group of us took a 45 minute train ride on the RER express train to see the Paris Catacombs.  

The following day, the rest of the crew had to work .  I bought a ticket to the Hop-On Hop-Off Paris bus tour.  As cheesy as it may seem, it’s the best way to see as much as possible in a city you are visiting.
