We’re trying our first mobile blog post today, from a delayed and re-routed train meandering through the countryside of eastern France …
Middle Age Miles is on the tail end of a fabulous summer holiday in Switzerland and France, blemished only by today’s train ride that looks like it’ll roll into Paris about 5 1/2 hours late. Hopefully you followed our Instagram feed (@middleagemiles) to see pics of our adventures. In Switzerland, we visited the Rheinfall, Lucerne, Mt Pilatus, Kleine Scheidegg and the Jungfraujoch, and Zermatt and the iconic Matterhorn. In France, we checked off a huge bucket list item by attending two stages of the Tour de France, plus we explored the charming French town of Colmar.
If we can ever get to Paris today, we’ll spend our last vacation night in style and for the right price, using a Hilton Free Weekend Night certificate at the Waldorf Astoria Trianon Palace in Versailles. And we’ll be flying back to the USA tomorrow on AA, hopefully with our Systemwide Upgrades clearing before departure so we can enjoy a nice, comfy flight.
We’ll be back online on Monday with more great points-and-miles strategies and travel tips. We can’t wait to share more of what we’ve learned!
Until then, we wish everyone a great weekend and safe travels! See you next week!
