Aachen, Paris, Chartres. I do not eat escargot, even on New Years Eve. :)
Aachen...tell me what that is like. I'm hoping to get there sometime.
We loved Chartres, but Reims even more. Chartres Cathedral was very dark. Reims had stained glass windows even over the doors and was awesome. (And we stayed in a wonderful place in Reims; what a splurge. I'll never forget it.)
Glad you get to travel...even if you don't like snails.
