Back in Paris by way of Saipan and South Korea and Frankfurt airport

The first thing one notices about Charles de Gaulle airport and Frankfurt’s huge airport is that Europe is beginning to look a little shabby and outdated after spending some time in South Korea’s relatively new airport at Incheon outside of Seoul (constructed in 2001). If you ever needed to catch a few hours sleep in between flight connections, there’s no place better than Incheon’s Transit Hotel where you can book a room right in the transit section without ever having to recheck your baggage or go through additional security checks.
Of course, I’m thrilled to be back at CDG, Charles de Gaulle, but okay Europe, don’t let Korea leave you behind in the dust!
