A Quick Dip Across the Pond

In April of 2012, Laura and I took a short trip to London & Paris to visit one of her best friends.

I had been to London once before — over New Years of 2005 — and had been longing to go back. Having grown up in New York City, I'm a bit of a city snob. Few cities make the cut as "real cities" for me, but London ranks pretty close to the top.

After a couple of days in London, we hopped on the Eurostar for a trip to Paris. The trip was brief — just 48 hours — but the beautiful architecture, delicious pastries, and incredible views make me eager to book the next flight from JFK → CDG.
