I don't like to travel, in particular. But I do like to travel in order to get somewhere else, if that makes any sense. I like to settle in, I guess.

Well, the best places (restaurants, bars, etc) are near the old town (near the old cathedral), which is only a short bus ride from the newer commercial downtown. I know many cool nooks and crannies in Mexico City.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:29pm
Parq:

I get what you're saying about travel, Meghan. I've always said that, while I like to see sights, my main goal in visiting a new locale is to get the local vibe. I got to do what you were suggesting just once, with a three week stay in a local apartment. It was The best.
Avatar 12:31pm
northguineahills:

I hate the getting there part of travel (airports), unless I have time to take the scenic route, but I love being in different places (I even explore my local area, I found a queer redneck bar randomly on bday, which was a nice surprise, and had a blast).

Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:32pm

If there was a way to just get there would be great, but I guess like seasons, you appreciate arriving after the travel. Though I can do without some of the waiting..

I've said for a very long time: I love travel, but I hate transit.

If you've never heard Patton Oswalt's bit on why he likes Jet Blue, you should. Summary: air travel has become just awful, and Jet Blue accommodates that by surrounding you with indulgently moronic entertainment.

Jet Blue is the least stressful American airline to fly, and at LaGuardia, there's barely a line to get through security..

What time do Americans normally have dinner?

I tend to go very late because I go to the gym after work then eat when I get home.

A dozen oysters would be more food then I could eat in one day (pure volume of food), 5 is the most I've ever had (I don't eat very much, but I take my food very seriously a cook most meals from scratch).

Oh, c'mon! Who dines before 19:00 except families with tiny kids or codgers who pop up at 5 in the morning and start their day all out of whack?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:26pm
Parq:

I have no idea what people mean when they say Parisians are rude. I was there only for five days but I don't recall a single person being rude to me. Cynics say that's because shop owners wanted to sell me something, but that doesn't account for all the people whom my daughter stopped so she could pet their dogs, and all the people we greeted in the parks. And what NGH said at 12:52, and then some.
Avatar 1:27pm
northguineahills:

When visiting my parents, it was unnerving that they would eat dinner at 4:30 (cue the Seinfeld episode where the seniors go for the early-bird special).

I'm rarely home from work before 8-9ish, so, that was when i was used to making dinner (after a drink).
Avatar 1:28pm
Jeff Moore:

No, I never experienced Parisians as rude. Some had a certain elegant formality which I guess some tourists might take the wrong way, and I had people correct my grammar or pronunciation - which I welcomed. They never seemed to be doing it in a mean way, just a want-things-right way.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:29pm
Meghan:

at home I eat late, but when traveling, I tend to eat or want to eat earlier, since I plan on going out for drinks later. Or at least a snack. We had none of that...
Avatar 1:30pm
Jeff Moore:

No snacks! There's the problem!
Avatar 1:30pm
northguineahills:

The cashiers in De Gaulle responded to me in English when I attempted my Quebecois.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:30pm
Meghan:

There was no place open for snacks!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:32pm
Meghan:

We used French most of the time there unless someone was speaking English to us. But for our wine tasting, we asked for English, just so we didn't miss the important facts or words we may not know
Avatar 1:34pm
Jeff Moore:

That seems sensible. Information over pride.

βrian:

Crap. Did I miss the wine tasting? I had to get some lunch
  1:35pm
still b/p:

I got some of the rudeness from Paris workers — an impatient abruptness as if a need for a clearer response or bit of help was a sharp chafing exasperating imposition on them. Particular to Paris or France ? Maybe not, but pretty noticeable when a moment’s easy simple courtesy or even half effort at help would make a difference. Made me want to be more helpful to visitors here when I can be.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:35pm
Parq:

Can I be candid? With Paris, as with New York, the problem is mainly middle American assholes who go to visit with about seven truckloads of hubris, and an equal amount of resentment towards cosmopolitan people, and who get upset when their "I'm a true son/daughter of God's Country, and when I say jump, you say how high" doesn't get obsequious results. They then turn around and tell all the folks back home how rude the urban locals were.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:35pm
Meghan:

Though when we walked in I spoke French and then when they asked English we said yes please!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:36pm

I often find listening to strongly accented English is more difficult than parsing the French. Speaking is always problematic, though.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:40pm
Meghan:

I will say, that like most major cities, that people don't have the lingering time for niceties... We have no problem giving you the info, but we are busy people and are probably rushing somewhere. I have no problem telling you directions, but I can't linger to give you the history or all the little friendly bits... I don't find it rude. It's just respecting people's time. Unlike the smaller towns that love to chit chat about little things.... I have this issue as a bartender as well. If you are coming up to a busy bar, know what you want and have your money ready. I'm not waiting for you to decide when other people are ready
