I finally got around to emailing American Airlines about my horrible previous experience flying with them. They responded with a voucher. I decided to bite the bullet and take advantage of the amazing air fare sale they’re promoting right now for fall travel to Europe and booked my flight to Paris.

I’m optimistic that I could not possibly have a second equally as horrible experience flying with American again. I hope I’m right.

But most of all, the important thing is this: I am going to Paris in September!

I am now going to email the apartment owner that I rent from and get my flight details to him. My little home away form home there awaits.

And then I’ll make sure my flight details get added to my TripIt.

Here are my flight details. I even got preferred seating for the international legs of the trip. A little more leg room can make a huge difference on those long hauls.

A fellow TripAdvisor forum poster had this to say in a thread about what pulls us to Paris. No one can really state it’s anything specific, but this sums it up perfectly:

“Paris is like a lover who has a permanent hold on your heart ~ you just can’t get him out of your head and even when you are with someone new, you can’t stop thinking about what you are missing.”

So it got me to thinking about other quotes about Paris, albeit more famous ones. Here’s what I found:

“When good Americans die they go to Paris.” - Oscar Wilde (I do so hope this is true. That would be my perfect heaven, after all).

“If you are lucky enough to have lived in Paris as a young man, then wherever you go for the rest of your life, it stays with you, for Paris is a movable feast.” – Ernest Hemingway (And feast it is. Oh, the food!)

America is my country and Paris is my hometown.” – Gertrude Stein

“I wish I could express what Paris does to me and why it seems that I have stopped seeing the rest of the world and keep returning there. To me, Paris IS the rest of the world, I suppose. “ – Robin Burks
