After my work meeting in London, we decided to add some extra vacation days and travel. Paris was number one on the list. I’d been to Paris once, but didn’t get to explore much at all. Gen had been in Paris once for an hour when she was traveling through Europe during her college semester abroad in Lancaster. Aman had been pestering to see the Eiffel Tower for the past 6 months. So Paris was a no-brainer.
Working for a French company has its perks. For instance, when working on a project requires a trip to headquarters. So it was that the day before my 36th birthday, I was on a plane flying east over the Atlantic. The plan called for meetings in Paris for 2.5 days, followed by 2 days in London.
