You all ask me this question often! Actually, other than a birthday in August, daughter is turning 50, I have no airplane plans. Can you imagine?
Many of you may have checked out European flights for this summer and found how high they are. Well, call and check out the fall. From 16 September to 27 October there are some great fares and the weather is very nice. I just checked from Boston to Paris and home from Amsterdam, a nice two city combination fare is $566. That is less than some fares from coast to coast. And the flight times are about the same! So why not go for a long weekend? Both cities have wonderful museums and places to enjoy. So you have been to Paris? How many times have you see the “Wizard of Oz?”
I have written often about how some of us repeat and then add a little something new each time. And others just want something new. So I have never been to Amsterdam; maybe that is my next going. Paris and Amsterdam. Want to join me?
A piece of me says ‘I should no longer travel by myself’. Then I have also learned there are so many ways to get assistance along the way. The first issue to negotiate is the large airports. Moving sidewalks, motorized carts and wheelchairs are everywhere. They are free- just let me reserve one for you. Some airports use many different helpers to move people around the airport. Others use just one person. The latter is much easier to tip.
From the airport to the city to many attractions, there are services available. Even Europe is becoming more aware and helpful for the less mobile. So do not think you cannot go.
Now we no longer have excuse of fare or access, what else is stopping you from planning your next sojourn?
