We Did It!
We’re Really Going.
To Paris! Waiting not so patiently for June.
We did our own Travel Arrangements. Together. One Evening.
One LONG Evening.
Laptops. Phones. Maps. Notebooks.
To Get the Best Price on Airfare.
Air Travel is Very Expensive when You Live Off a Main Thorofare. Like We Do.
Here’s our Starting Point…Albuquerque in the Shadow of the Sandia Mountains.
Great Fares can easily be found for the New York to Paris Route.
But We First Need to Get to New York.
Here’s My Hot Tip for Booking Reasonable Airfare.
Begin with the Travel Sites to Find the Travel Routes and Airlines.
But Don’t Book with Them. Leave the Search Tab Open.
Go to a New Search Tab. Search the Individual Airline Directly.
You Should Find the Same Routes, but often at Lower Prices.
For this Trip, We are on Icelandair.
Would You Have Thought of Going to Paris by Way of Iceland?
No. Me Neither.
But I am hearing that Iceland is the New Hot Travel Route.
Here’s the Map…There’s Iceland. In the Middle of the Atlantic. Just East of Greenland.
The Pink Speck in the Ocean.
Just a Few Hops, Skips and Giant Leaps.
Our Itinerary is Challenging but Interesting. And it All Seems to Be in 3’s.
Three Days of Travel. In Each Direction.
Three Planes Each Way. Total of 5,182 Miles.
One Red Eye Plane to NYC. Three Hour Layover in NYC.
The Paris Route. Three Hour Layover in Reykjavik. 11 Hours Travel Time.
Three Days in Paris. Sorbonne Area. I just twirled my finger and landed here.
Three Hours on a Train from Paris to Points as Yet Unknown.
Three Days in the French Countryside.
To Go Home.

Can’t Wait for You to Come Along for the Adventure. Magic.
