While the rest of the world is talking about the red carpet trends, Angelina Jolie’s leg-dress malfunction and the mediocre behavior of Sacha Baron Cohen, we’re thinking about the Oscar’s films’ destinations and how they are set to change this year’s travel choices: Paris (Midnight in Paris/Hugo), Scotland (The War Horse), Hawaii (The Descendants), Los Angeles/CA (The Artist), Sweden (“The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo”)…
First up is Paris. Both “Hugo” and “Midnight in Paris” manage to capture the very romantic magic of France’s capital city. If Paris is your next destination, check these two Parisian hotels just a few minutes from the popular attractions, such as Louvre and Opera. Or if you are traveling with kids and want to visit Disneyland Paris and Parc Asterix, you can stay at the Millennium’s Charles de Gaulle hotel.
“When I was a little kid, I liked airplane food. It wasn’t hard back then—the food was pretty good, because the airlines were putting some effort into it. I even liked the little trays, how everything fit together,” - writes Chef Eric Ripert in his “Eating First-Class on the Fly” article for The Wall Street Journal. (You can follow him @ericripert)
Ripert then shares his food experience at the airports around the world - (he does travel a lot!) - and which airports he’d actually consider for dining.
“In Singapore and Hong Kong, I go to the airport ahead of time just to eat. It’s tiny and modern, and serves traditional cuisine. You can even get Peking duck..”
To say that his story made us water-mouth is to say little at all… It made us both hungry for travel and hungry for a good plate of Peking Duck…
Do you have your favorite airport to eat?
