Subject: Re: big cities vs. small towns
Hi, Helen... welcome! You bring up an interesting point when you say you like cities. I also enjoy cities... my interests in travel are usually the big cities whereas my husband really leans towards small towns. Therefore, we try to do a little of each... for example, when we went to New England a few years ago, we took the train to Boston for the day, but we spent the night in Salem, and the rest of the trip was spent in a small town in Maine. The last time we went to Paris, we took a day trip to Chartres, and that was my husband's favorite day. We met friends there who have been to France numerous times, but have never been to Paris. They hate big cities!
