Aaron has traveled to Europe many times and has visited both London and Paris. He recently received a video request to talk about what to see, how to be safe, and how to manage a week-long trip to London and Paris. If you had three days in each city with a travel day in between, what would you go see? Aaron shares his safety and American insider travel tips into both cities.

London
Underground Oyster Card – get it in Airport or Kings Cross. There’s a travel card but depending on how you get around, I found the Oyster to be a better deal.
https://tfl.gov.uk/travel-information/visiting-london/visitor-oyster-card

Top sights: Tower of London, Tower Bridge, London Bridge Experience, Buckingham palace (summer tours available), Westminster Abby (lots of dead kings/queens), Big Ben, Parliament – go over the bridge. Skip the London Eye – it’s a time eater. British Museum, see the Shard (tallest building in Europe), Natural History Museum, British Museum-Free! (thorn from Crown of Thorns)

I stayed at The Grand at Trafalgar Square. It’s not cheap, but the location is incredible and the tube is right around the corner.

Eat at The Clarence, Whitehall – http://www.theclarencewhitehall.com/. The Sticky toffee pudding is the Best!!
Eat the classic British breakfast, embrace it.

Paris
Learn please, hello, thank you. S’l vous plait, bonjour, bonsoir, merci.

Paris Metro – Paris Visite Pass – 1 day is 13.2 Euros
https://booking.parisinfo.com/il4-offers_p7-transport.aspx

Top sights: Eiffel Tower at sunset, Louvre, on to Tuileries Garden, check out the Egyptian obelisk, then Champs Elysees, Arc d’Triomphe, Versailles, Notre Dame (not really), walk on the Seinne, Rue Cler (7-5pm), Sainte Chapelle, if you have time, Jardin du Luxembourg. If you like catacombs, there’s a main one – very cool, but not for the claustrophobic. Musee d’Orsay, Pantheon.

Versailles 2/3 of a day – a must.
Louve cafes – $9 coke. Get used to water with gas.

Stay in Latin Quarter, but food isn’t that great for dinner. Paris is broken into Arrondissements. Hotel Rives, Hotel Eugene, etc. Both have European breakfast of meats/cheeses/juice. Take some cheese for the road. Across from Eugene is a bakery. Yum! Some do suck, bed bugs, etc.

In Aug, it can be hot and Parisians leave the city. Learn the Metro, get a metro map, you’ll move much faster.

Suffer-fest to the North Pole

What is it like to take 8 humans and mush dozens of dogs to the North Pole, one of the most inhospitable places on Earth? You can find out in the book North to the Pole by Will Steger and Paul Schurke.

In this book, you will find a tale of hardship, triumph, conflict, pain, and death. When embarking on a major expedition, you think you’re aware of the pain you’ll suffer. On the second day, the team had its first dose of suffering and it didn’t end until a week before their triumph.

The book is well written and easy to follow. Steger’s writing style is simple and straight-forward. There’s no reason to go crazy with this text when the experience is crazy enough. This is a great reference for people who like to armchair expedition as well as though who are really thinking about it (like me).

It’s a definite buy!

Travel with Aaron Linsdau, polar explorer and motivational speaker, to La Jolla, CA. This small beach community is inside of San Diego and is one of the most exclusive neighborhoods in the county. The best part about it is anyone can visit. It’s not closed off.

The animals are a huge attraction. Sea lions, seals, cormorants, urchins, pelicans, and more ply through the sea at La Jolla. Kayakers, snorkelers, swimmers, SUP-ers, and more enjoy the area alongside the animals.

Visit Mission Bay in San Diego, the major crown jewel of the city’s park system. Mission Bay has a dedicated bay for sailing and non-powered sports and the east side of the bay is for anyone.

You can rollerblade, skate, bike, ride, swim, surf, row, and just about anything else you can think of. Belmont Park and Sea World are major attractions and are a fun way to spend a day. If you have one day in San Diego, Mission Bay is a great way to enjoy it.

Tired of the same old shopping mall experience? Have you seen all of your favorite brands here, there, and everywhere? Then you need to visit Seaport Village, the charming waterfront village with unique shops and eateries in San Diego. If you want to have a different selection and find something truly distinct, Seaport Village is your place.

Located in downtown San Diego along the waterfront, Seaport is a perfect tourist stop. It’s along the Old Town Trolly route, so it’s easy to hit when you’re touring around.

Is Balboa Park in San Diego better than Central Park in New York City? You can argue that one after you watch the video. But Balboa Park is 50% bigger than Central Park and that’s a fact. There are well over a dozen museums in Balboa and there are big events all throughout the year. San Diego even has a city organist that plays the largest outdoor pipe organ in the world.

Jackson Lake Lodge has the best view in the entire National Park system. Situated inside of Grand Teton National Park, the lodge is tucked into the trees and hidden off the road. You can sit in the comfort of the lodge while you watch grizzly bears chase elk across Willow Flats. There are hotel rooms, fine dining, and normal diner food. There’s also a bar serving food should you want to enjoy an adult drink.

Grand Teton National Park is the epitome of purple mountain majesties from the song America the Beautiful. Rising over 7,000 feet from the valley floor, the cathedral group has no foothills from the Jackson and Wyoming side of the mountain range. This range is part of the Rocky Mountains. Both a family-friendly and hard-core adventure park, Grand Teton is truly an experience to behold. When people fly into the valley into the only commercial airport in the National Park system, so often they look out the airplane window and say “holy bleeping bleep” because the plane feels like it’s flying into the mountains. There is nothing else like it.

Is This America’s Bravest Explorer?

John Wesley Powell may be America’s bravest explorer. With only one arm and a motley crew, he set to row three boats from Green River, Wyoming to the southern exit of the Grand Canyon in 1869. No one knew what lay inside this river system and this was the first time it was run. It didn’t take too long for things to go terribly wrong, as all remarkable expeditions have happen…
