For those of you who also read the Tokyo section of MiceChat, I apologize for posting this a second time, but we're trying to decide between the two!
My husband and I are thinking of taking our tax return next year and putting it towards a trip to Tokyo or Paris (since we've always wanted to go to both). We live in Canada, so I speak a little French (had to take it in high school...) and I can understand a fair amount by reading. The language isn't going to be a huge concern for us.
What is a reasonable budget (we've been students for the last 4 years, so we can live on a budget and we don't need super fancy accomodations - seriously, a French version of Motel 6 would be fine!) for hotel, food, transportation (around Paris as well) and 2 days at each park? As for airfare, we'll just grab whatever is cheapest - probably fly into London and take the train to Paris. Also, what is the best time (i.e., off season) to travel to Paris?
